    The opioid epidemic and your workforce

    It is projected that the cost of the opioid crisis in the United States will hit $200 billion in 2020. This crisis hits home for many of us, both personally and professionally. For businesses, the impact of this epidemic can be felt within the organization as this relates to employees’ health and overall health care spend.

    In this one-hour, interactive webinar, industry experts William Beecroft, MD, Medical Director of Behavioral Health and Erin McGuire, PharmD Clinical Pharmacist will provide an update on the opioid crisis in detail, discuss the connections between behavioral health and opioid use, and educate HR professionals on what the health care industry is doing to combat the problem. HR professionals will gain a better understanding of the unlikely faces of people who may be addicted to these often prescribed and potentially deadly medications and how they can help their employees get the care they need.

    Financial wellness at work: Why employers are embracing it

    Employees, regardless of their income or demographic, have or will encounter financial strain. With most Americans living paycheck to paycheck, many people are not prepared for an emergency expense like a high utility bill, medical expense or unexpected car repair. A PwC annual study discovered that 60% of employees reported that their stress is linked to personal finances. And this stress is having an impact on your workforce’s productivity. Employees worried about their finances are found to have higher rates of absenteeism, turnover, injury and dissatisfaction in their job.

    This fast-paced session led by Jeff Rubleski, Certified Financial Planner, and Christina Hix, Director of Specialty Benefits will cover critical personal finance topics of importance to your workforce including: saving for retirement, managing debt and building emergency funds. HR professionals understand will gain a better understanding of what employers can do to help employees to achieve financial wellbeing through innovative benefit plan design ideas.
