    THE NEW REALITIES OF EMPLOYEE WELLNESS AND BENEFITS

    Presented by Rachel Gackle, Employee Benefits Consultant with Marsh & McLennan Agency 

    Hindsight is 20/20, and as we look to 2022 and reflect back on 2020-2021, we are faced with  several new realities. To effectively manage our benefit packages, we need to keep a pulse on current business trends and advancements in the health care delivery system, and how this impacts our employers. Join us as we dive into realities which will influence workforce plans and policies for the foreseeable future. 

    Five New Realities

    As health plan costs continue to outpace inflation, strategies shift toward cost containment: Uncertainty appears to be at an all-time high—about the ACA, about COVID and vaccinations, about access to health care and affordability. What are some smart ways for employers to contain health care costs? How can technology and digital health be used to improve access and drive down costs?


    HR is taking on a new, digitally transformed role: Our research found that most employers admit they are not taking enough advantage of technology to improve how their employees interface with HR. How can organizations integrate new technology into their HR operations to save time and money? How are digital apps and platforms transforming how benefits solutions are delivered?


    Employee well-being and inclusion have never been more important: For years, we’ve known that mental health was a public health concern. Today, the majority of employers have plans to address mental health stigma and improve access to behavioral health services. What are recommendations for addressing “work-from-home (WFH) fatigue”, where should employers invest their resources to improve “total worker well-being”, and how does the current culture support a “supportive and inclusive” mindset.


    Flexibility is no longer a perk—It’s an expectation: Many employers shifted to WFH in response to the pandemic, and this trend may be here to stay for a while. What are some “best practices” employers around the country are implementing to address this? Could WFH be permanent in some cases? If so, what should employers be considering as they adjust their workforce plans and policies?


    The changing political landscape impacts the health care market: Though we have transitioned to the Biden administration, there remains uncertainly about what might change and when with regard to ACA, COVID-19 mitigation, and prescription drugs, to name a few. To get beyond conjecture, what should employers be focused on as they build their health care plans and policies for 2022 and beyond?

    For over 10 years, Rachel Gackle has worked in a consultative role, with the last 3 years as an Employee Benefits Consultant at Marsh & McLennan Agency. She enjoys the insurance industry because it continuously changes and no two days are ever the same. She is especially passionate about helping her client’s build an attractive, competitive and sustainable employee benefits offering that supports company objectives while protecting her client’s greatest asset - their people! 

    Monthly chapter meetings and HR educational presentations are free for members and $20 for non-members.

    We apply for continuing educational credits from SHRM and HRCI for our presentations.
