Starr, a leading global insurance provider, has recently launched a program that helps employees where they need it most: paying off their student debt. Join this webcast to hear how they budgeted for the program and how it is improving employee retention. This webcast will cover Starr’s entire program design, budgeting, and approval process. 

Join this interactive discussion to learn how Starr:

  • Discovered the need for this program;
  • Used CommonBond’s Organizational Assessment to understand the extent of the problem and its multigenerational impact;
  • Used the Organizational Assessment data to gain Benefit Committee approval, and
  • Calculated projected cost savings from reduced voluntary turnover to fund the program. 

Who Should Attend: Mid-to-senior level HR, Rewards, Benefits, Finance, and/or Talent Acquisition/Management professionals who would like to understand the benefits of a student loan repayment program.
