About This Course:
This webinar will discuss the top five employee benefit trends for 2016, most of which are inter-related and not mutually exclusive.

As employers continue to strategize on how to deal with health care reform, one approach gaining in popularity is defined contribution health plans, which often use private exchanges, in which employees often choose consumer-driven health plans, which create greater needs for voluntary benefits. Self-funding of health plans can take place in a defined contribution environment or can be an alternative to private exchange, which are often fully insured.

You will benefit from this information by gaining a greater understanding of the top trends in employee benefits, why they are popular, how they can be used and the situations where they may or may not fit an employer's strategy.
