HR Lunch Bunch ’21st Century Benefits’ – Salem

July 26, 2017 @ 12:00 am - 1:00 pm


What to Bring: Your business cards, your lunch, & a business associate
When:  12pm – 1pm
:  Chemeketa Small Business Development Center
626 High Street NE, Salem, OR 97301 (Parking at Marion St. Parkade)

A new survey of nearly 1000 adults conducted by Anthem found that 35% of Millennials
(ages 18 to 34) have turned down a job offer either fully or partially due to the fact that
they were dissatisfied with insurance offerings, compared to 27% of U.S. respondents overall

We must acknowledge the radically different needs of a new generation of workers.  As employers, we need to think about and design our benefit offerings to fit the flexible employment relationships of our workers and the new “shared economy.”

In the 2016 EBRI/Greenwald & Associates Health and Voluntary Workplace Benefits Survey:

  • One-third of workers (32%) are only somewhat satisfied with the benefits offered by their current employer, and 20% are not satisfied.
  • Workers continue to value employment-based health insurance as their most important benefit. Eighty-seven percent of workers report that employment-based health insurance is extremely or very important, followed by a retirement savings plan (77%) and dental or vision (72%).

We will be joined by benefits consultant Alisa Brake from The Partners Group.  Our discussion will include options around Portable, Universal, Pro-Rated benefits, what are the trends that are coming and what are you doing/offering now.

So….Come, share and learn.  Remember, this is your meeting, so come prepared to participate and bring your questions.  This is a great time and place to share your “learnings” with other attendees.

There’s no cost to attend and everyone is welcome, so feel free to bring your co-workers and colleagues – the more the merrier!  (And don’t forget to bring your lunch, your business cards, and your questions & anecdotes!)  Please RSVP so we know how many folks to expect.  (hraevents@hranswers.com).

Hope to see you on the 26th!  Please call if you need help with directions or have questions.
