Research Council on Employee Benefits

In an era of economic uncertainty and spiraling healthcare costs, improving employee benefits seems like a pipe dream, and simply hanging onto current benefits a herculean struggle. The members of this council are on the front lines of that struggle every day. Topics we discuss include:

  • Managing volatility in defined benefit programs
  • Disease management
  • Pension plan redesign

The crisis in healthcare, coupled with an aging workforce, makes it more important than ever for benefits executives to avail themselves of the latest ideas and best practices.

The power of peer learning

Enduring relationships with trusted peers are the core of the council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of council membership. Confidential peer dialogue provides you with a broader perspective and shared experiences, as well as access to specific knowledge and best practices.
