Presented by Rocke D. Blair,
Managing Director, HUB International

The economics of a healthy workplace and how workplace wellness is a “win-win” strategy, improving both employees’ health and employers bottom lines. Once quantified, prescriptive solutions can be initiated to impact key cost drivers to employer wage & benefit spend to maximize employee retirement readiness and shareholder return.

Using data, analytics and insights, segmentation of employee demographics can bright line solutions that optimize retirement readiness to the unique needs of employees based upon their age, family status, income, etc. vs. a “one size fits all” approach. Proper Investment glide-path construction is key to retirement readiness as it protects against the impact a potential “black-swan” event has on wage & benefit spend.
