Grocers Face Tough Tradeoffs with Employee Health Benefits

Workshop Helps Independent Grocers Attract Workers and Profits

“Stop Rolling the Dice with Employee Health Benefits,” a working session, will focus on helping independent grocers attract and keep valuable workers while improving profitability. This is one of 4 FMS Financial Symposium sessions on Sunday, February 11, 2018 during the National Grocers Association (NGA) Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Chris Cooley, co-founder MyHRConcierge and SMB Benefits Advisors, will present “Stop Rolling the Dice with Employee Health Benefits.” He also pens The Shelby Report HR & Benefits News column. Workshop participants can earn CPE credits and will learn:

  • Current healthcare cost trends
  • Types of insurance to consider
  • Plan designs to help decrease health benefits costs

“Independents face so many conflicting choices about Employee Health Benefits,” notes Cooley. “It’s crucial to control escalating benefits expense. But, if you reduce benefits or cut hours you risk losing workers, customers and profits. There’s better way and we’re excited to share it.”
