This is a busy time of year for the Spring team when it comes to conferences, and we’re excited to announce that one of our Partners, Karen English, will be speaking on a panel at this year’s Integrated Benefits Institute (IBI) Annual Forum. We have sponsored and been involved with the organization for many years now, and we look forward to continued participation as we join other benefits professionals for another thought-provoking summit. This year’s conference will be held from March 12th-14th in San Francisco and boasts about 25 different educational sessions, along with networking opportunities like a dinner cruise.Employee Benefits Conference

As a speaker, Karen will be in good company, with other IBI Forum sessions being led by representatives from companies including Delta Airlines, Prudential Financial, Walmart, Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, Walgreens and many others. On Wednesday, March 14th  from 8-9 AM, Karen will join Gene Lanzoni of The Guardian Life Insurance Company, Claudia Ruggiero of Chevron and Kerry Daley of Robert Half International.

The presentation, entitled “Evolving Your Absence Management Strategy: Let’s Talk Best Practices” will provide an overview of the different companys’ absence management programs, best practices and how it all works for that company based on things like corporate culture. The need to constantly adapt and modify your program will be stressed, a concept that will be demonstrated with specific examples.

Attendees of this session can expect to come away with strategies for identifying trends in your absence management program, tips for how to take action and implement changes, an understanding of key metrics to consider and more. If you’re wondering how to keep your absence management program updated and running with optimal efficiency, don’t miss out on this presentation!

With a Nor’Easter coming our way, we’re especially excited to head out to California, and we’re never disappointed by the quality of content or turnout at the IBI Annual Forum. Hope to see you there!
