Industry leaders convene at the 2022 Group & Worksite Benefits Conference to learn about emerging trends.
WINDSOR, Conn. March 29, 2022 — Leaders attending the 2022 Group & Worksite Benefits Conference will focus on transformational changes affecting workplace benefits and their impact on carriers, brokers, and benefits technology providers. A recent study by LIMRA and EY found 88% of large companies expect most of their employees will work remotely at least some of the time.
“In the new world of work, the employee-employer dynamic has shifted along with the importance and role of benefits,” says Sean O’Donnell, senior vice president, member relations and consulting for LIMRA, LOMA & LL Global, Inc. “Leaders attending this year’s event will focus on how the benefits industry is rapidly advancing toward a new future, taking into account hybrid work and the market’s evolving priorities.”
Patrick Leary, corporate vice president, workplace benefits research, LIMRA, will present research from LIMRA and EY on harnessing growth in the workplace benefits market. The general session will cover the changing dynamics of the workplace benefits landscape and how carriers must adapt to capture profitable growth.
Featured at the event is an executive panel, moderated by Jessica Vanscavish, vice president & head of customer solutions at Prudential, which will explore the future of work and the role workplace benefits plays. The panelists participating are:
- Yanela Frias, president of group insurance for Prudential;
- David Healy, senior vice president of group benefits for Sun Life US; and
- Harry Monti, executive vice president, benefits division for Symetra.
The keynote speakers for this year’s conference include:
- Heather McGowan, future-of-work strategist, will share what the future of work will look like, how attendees can apply this to their companies, industry, and culture;
- Kevin Snyder Ed.D., best-selling author, will use over two decades of research to inspire attendees to embrace change and overcome new challenges; and
- Jim Klein, president of the American Benefits Council, will provide an update on legislative developments from Washington.
Additional concurrent sessions at this year’s conference will cover topics on impacts of COVID, evolving benefits technology, customer expectations, DE&I, the gig economy, employee mental health, and the latest findings from LIMRA on employee attitudes.
The Group & Worksite Benefits Conference will be held on May 3 – 5 in Boston, Massachusetts. Typically, the event attracts more than 250 executives and professionals responsible for the development, marketing, and distribution of worksite benefits.
