10:30 AM Maintaining the Strategic Vision While Balancing Multi-Generational Employee Segments

Rapidly shifting employee demographics is one most significant changes affecting compensation and benefits innovation and management.  Depending on the employee, rewards perceived as valuable can range from traditional benefits such as stock options, retirement planning, 401Ks, or HSAs to emerging benefit trends such as flex-time, on-demand assignments, student loan repayment assistance, and career-pathing.  In this session, we will share insights and experiences in: 

•Acknowledging compensation expectations and preferred benefits of incoming talent while valuing those of  tenured employees
•Merging Baby Boomer and the Gen Y employees: What we have learned, what we would do differently
•Determining the widest number of offerings your company culture and budget can sustain
•Employee surveying for balancing their preferences with budgetary and administrative limitations
•Knowing when to draw the line: Creating competitive rewards while staying true to organizational culture and long-term goals

8:50 AM How We Managed Costs with Less Benefits Featuring More Robust Offerings

While some may contend that less is more, that can be a tough sell in a talent market that expects more variety and a wider range of employment compensation and benefits.  However, despite these increasing demands and expectations, Total Rewards executives must work within their budgetary limits and organizational constraints, while remaining attractive to potential candidates and current employees.  This case study will examine how an organization was able to: 

•Create the most appealing packages and layered benefits while working within stringent budgets, timeframes, and management cultures
•Creatively maximize a streamlined compensation and benefits package that appealed to the mass majority of its employees
•Evaluate the competition and incorporate novel benefits to build optimal and unique total rewards for their talent acquisition needs
