Jul 11 TAKING CONTROL: Proven Strategies to Curb Healthcare Volatility & Improve the Value of your Organization

TAKING CONTROL: Proven Strategies to Curb Healthcare Volatility & Improve the Value of your Organization

Employer Sponsored healthcare has and continues to be one of the greatest financial challenges for many organizations throughout the United States. Historically, companies have turned to the insurance markets to manage expenses year over year only to find premiums continue to rise while the value of what is being purchased declines. As costs continue to increase, so too does the impact on culture, growth and EBITDA.

The U.S. healthcare system continues to become more complex while options within the traditional marketplace continue to worsen. To combat this, employers must take a more business-like approach to managing expenditures or be destined to stay in the vicious cycle they find themselves in today.

In Taking Control, we will reveal strategies to identify cost drivers, quantify them, and prioritize solutions to them. These proven strategies offer employers the ability to access nationally recognized carrier networks, create their own plan design, retain premiums typically reserved as profits for the insurance carriers, and curb year over year volatility.

Jul 18 Women and Wine on Wednesdays (networking)
Women & Wine on Wednesdays connects women: for building new relationships and for re-connecting old ones, through a unique facilitated forum each month, fulfilling an ongoing and critical need for women to share resources and discover new opportunities, by providing access to a wider and more diverse network of both business and social connections, for the growth and support of our professional and personal lives. Wine, for centuries, has proven to liven the senses, cause thoughts to flow, and enhance friendly idea exchanges, so it blends perfectly to foster a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere for us. Come enjoy a glass of wine - visit with old friends and meet some new ones - spend time with like-minded women who have a desire to support each other and collaborate to improve ourselves, others, and the communities in which we live. Events are held each month on the third Wednesday. There are no dues or fees to participate.

No need to RSVP. Feel free to bring others.
