HPA Member Meeting

September 21, 2022 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

Join us on September 21st for an in-person member meeting at the Woodlands Club in Falmouth!

This event is approved for 2.5 SHRM Professional Development Credits

Implementing new health benefit strategies is hard. Will there be disruption? Will there be member pushback? Will members utilize it? Do they understand why the change is being made? These are just a few of the concerns that employers have whenever they consider changing employee benefits, and sometimes employers end up taking a pass on promising strategies due to fear of potential employee disruption or disapproval.

Luckily, there’s a wealth of knowledge and experience out there on how to communicate and implement changes smoothly. For this HPA member meeting we’ll be bringing in an expert to share best practices that employers of all sizes can utilize to ensure that benefit changes are smoothly implemented, and understood and appreciated by members.

In addition to the presentation on how to effectively manage and communicate change, we’ll also hear from a Maine employer about how they managed to implement a “disruptive” benefit change without the disruption. Attendees will hear about the range of strategies they employed to ensure employees were not only OK with the change, but actually supportive.

We hope you can join us!
