Companies are recognizing they must provide new benefit offerings that are truly meaningful to employees if they want to increase the likelihood that great talent will stay. One benefit offering becoming more common and helping to retain employees is family care benefits, which can include on-site child care, near-site child care, tuition savings, back-up child care and elder care. These benefits take some pressure off employees and place these companies at a competitive advantage to attract and retain better talent, and enable employers to gain wage savings, too.
Join our session to learn why and how leading employers are taking a family-friendly approach through their benefit offerings in order to successfully recruit and retain top talent. Then find out how this can work for your own organization.

And what if all of these systems could actually work together to help you manage everything from new hire onboarding to payroll deductions to benefits renewals—all online, all in one place, all for free?

By 2020, millennials will no longer be the future of the American workforce—they’ll be the majority. For HR managers, this means that attracting and retaining these employees will be one of the biggest challenges we face over the next 10 years. The good news is that your employee benefits can help.

There’s a retirement crisis in America, and the statistics are grim. Most corporations moved to 401(k) plans as pensions proved to be too costly. But now these costs have been moved to employees who are burdened with more risk than ever. And employees rarely have the same level of expertise as professional pension plan managers. A little known option in many plans — the self-directed brokerage account — provides a new way to 401(k).
Please join us for a live webinar on taking a personalized fiduciary approach to the 401(k) plan. We’ll discuss ways for employees to mitigate retirement risks with the help of fiduciary financial planners. We’ll review a disciplined 5-step fiduciary financial planning process that places client objectives first from their 401(k) to employee benefits and tax strategies.

The Obama administration announced it will delay until 2015 the employer mandate of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA).
But employers can’t simply tune out until 2015. The Act’s employer mandate has been deferred, not repealed. All other elements of the ACA remain in effect with their original deadlines, including a variety of requirements that take effect on January 1, 2014. And insurance marketplaces will be open for business on October 1, 2013 -- less than 3 months from now -- in time for open enrollment. Smart companies are using the delay of the employer mandate to get a head start on their compliance efforts.
