“Value Based Benefits: Winning HR Strategies for Cost Containment, Employee Engagement, and Population Health.”

What are the market trends telling us? How do we think outside of the box to design health plans around value, drive economies of scale (efficiencies) AND manage our employee health risks?

The desire for employer-sponsored coverage and support continues to rank high among employees. Thus, employers are balancing the need to assure access and sustain affordability — for both the employee and the company. How can narrow networks work to collaborate with providers and care teams to enhance quality, control costs, and improve outcomes.

Join LSHRM on February 8th to hear Allison M. Ledford, Senior Director, Prevention and Wellness, and John R. Hammond, Systems Director, Human Resources discuss how the HR strategies below have improved employee health and engagement at Norton Healthcare: 

I. Benefits trends (national and local)

II. Population Health Strategies

III. Narrow Networks

IV. Workforce Engagement, Retention & Recruitment

Virtual and in-person options available. Zoom details will be sent 1-day prior to the event.

SHRM and HRCI credits pending.
