VP, Global People Experience,
Wednesday, April 4 | 9: 15 - 10: 15 a.m.
Transforming the healthcare experience has become an almost hackneyed expression, but our
panelists are doing anything but insignificant work. These HR leaders are tackling issues others
avoid such as: having employees participate in the redesign of employee health benefits, forming
relationships with medical centers of excellence that improve the quality of employee and dependent
care while decreasing costs, and taking on the behemoth of healthcare: mental health. They will
share their proven approaches for changing the way healthcare is designed, communicated and
delivered — and the impact it can have on both your organization and employees’ lives.
Ideas & Innovators
Participants to be announced in March.
Wednesday, April 4 | 3: 15 - 4: 15 p.m.
This perennially top-rated session will inspire you with “big ideas” from industry visionaries leading
the innovation charge. In fast-paced, five-minute presentations, you’ll discover creative new ways of
thinking about your benefits programs and what you can do to ensure they continue to thrive.
Washington Update: Employee Benefits in a Midterm Election Year
President, American Benefits Council
Thursday, April 5 | 8 - 9 a.m.
It seems like Congress and the new administration have barely settled in after the last election.
But by April, we will be just half a year away from Election Day 2018, and Congress will almost
certainly have taken certain legislative steps to address, in some way, the Affordable Care Act.
Likewise, tax reform — and its corresponding implications for retirement policy — will either have
been completed or will be squarely under consideration. Attendee-favorite James Klein returns with
a thorough assessment of the political landscape and what it means for the health and retirement
policy agenda. He’ll closely examine how the benefits agenda is shaping the midterm elections and
vice versa — and what “must-do,” pre-election legislation could serve as the vehicle for employee-benefits policymaking.
