Colonial Life and United Benefit Advisors Offer a Complimentary Webinar for HR Professionals

Indianapolis, Ind., [April 17, 2014] --  Employers of all sizes are challenged to rethink employee benefits in this new world of health care reform. Tight budgets and a still-recovering economy are spurring benefits managers to think beyond health insurance and look at their benefits as a whole.

United Benefit Advisors and Colonial Life are hosting a WisdomWorkplace webinar for HR professionals and employers, titled “Managing Benefit Costs – A Top Business Priority” on Wednesday, April 23, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. ET.

Although the employer-based benefits landscape is radically changing, several truths are certain:

  • Employees will need reliable, actionable information to make wise decisions about benefits.
  • Voluntary offerings that are mostly untouched by the hand of health care reform are more attractive tools than ever to enhance employment recruitment and retention.
  • Voluntary benefits continue to offer valuable and affordable financial protection for working Americans.
  • Benefits communication that is meaningful and personalized provides an effective means to combat the confusion of health care reform and create an environment of choice, value and security.

Join Belinda Maffei, Director of Broker Market Development at Colonial Life, for a webinar on how voluntary benefits and benefits education & communication can be tremendous assets to employers looking for a cost-effective way to offer a competitive benefits package.
