Auditing Your Employee Benefits Program

About This Course:
Often too much attention is paid to an employer's medical plan, to the detriment of the other valuable offerings.

This live webinar will walk you through how to thoroughly review each of the medical and nonmedical benefits to be sure they are truly meaningful, cost effective, and in legal compliance. With the constant press and attention on healthcare and health insurance, it is important to review your benefits package as a whole package.

Employers often focus on "total rewards" related to employment. The health and welfare benefit plan, in its entirety, is a large portion of a total rewards package.

It extends well beyond just the health program. Making sure of the adequacy and value of this portion of total rewards is an invaluable exercise in the total rewards alignment with corporate values and culture.

This live webinar will serve as an exciting tutorial to help you be sure the benefit plans, and especially the costs, are in alignment with overall company budgets and objectives.
