Experts from Hodges-Mace and Strategic Benefits Advisors Cut Through Noise of How to Execute a Benefits Strategy and Find the Right Solution during April 25 Webinar

As an employer do you feel overwhelmed by all of the decisions you make when it comes to your benefits strategy? What technology do you need to use? How can you best engage your employees? Do you have the budget for a best in class solution? Will the tools you put in place be utilized? Join benefits administration experts Mike Ehrle, SVP of Strategic Partnerships, Hodges-Mace and Jay Schmitt, Principal, Strategic Benefits Advisors, on April 25 at 1:00pm ET as they discuss the merits of single HCM vs. best-in-breed point solutions as well as trends and innovative strategies in the benefits industry. Register here.

During the one hour webinar, “What’s All the Buzz About? Cutting through the Noise to Find the Right Solutions,” Mike and Jay will discuss engagement and efficiency solutions, share the pros and cons of adopting an all in one vs. best in breed benefits delivery platform and explain how a benefits consultant can help employers make the best decisions.

Attendees will learn:

1) Insights on the benefits technology trends
2) How the benefits evolution is impacting employers
3) Why partnering with a benefits technology expert helps employers and those in HR make the smartest decisions to achieve company-wide employee benefits goals

Benefit administration has evolved beyond data file exchanges and open enrollment. Those who embrace this evolution are creating an executable strategy that incorporates mobile, analytics and the ability to control the delivery platform. “Best-in-class” vendors with these capabilities are putting pressure on the “all-in-one” HCM vendors in a struggle for market share.

“Best in breed solutions are delivering tremendous innovation when it comes to redesigning the employee experience. Mobile dashboards that incorporate all benefit information in one place are one example,” says Mike. “Over the next few years, as HCMs continue to tackle the basic transactional components of benefit administration, they will still be behind when it comes to employee engagement and helping employers optimize their benefits investment.”

Measuring ROI of benefits continues to be a huge challenge for employers, according to Jay. “The industry is at the point where employers can finally realize ROI and control benefits costs assisted by technology. The right benefits delivery platform can have a huge impact on an employer’s ability to realize ROI.”

The pace of technology change is rapidly accelerating. These advancements are causing plan sponsors and their consultants to re-evaluate and determine the best approach to successfully deliver benefits to their employee base today and into the foreseeable future.
