1. Employee Wellness: The Convergence of Health and Wealth *

Washington D.C. | August 14, 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

As employers fight to attract and retain talent with innovative perks, physical and financial health are becoming more intertwined in modern benefits packages than ever before.

2. Providing a Modern Benefits Experience Across the Employee Lifecycle *

Philadelphia, PA | August 15, 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Nearly four out of five employees prefer better benefits over a pay raise, so robust and inclusive offerings are more important than ever to keep your employees healthy and happy—especially as we prepare to welcome Gen Z into the workplace. At this panel, Julie Li, Senior Director of People Operations at Namely, Amy Warner, Director of Talent Acquisition at iCIMS, and Vin DiDonna, Director of Benefit Consulting at Namely, discuss the changing landscape of health benefits and how to create an engaging enrollment experience for your employees.


3. Building a Culture that Embraces Security *

Atlanta, GA | August 16, 12:45 PM - 3:00 PM

Is your company data under lock and key? While multi-factor authentication and flash drive bans keep your company more secure, these additional security measures can frustrate employees. In this roundtable, Alex Gallagher, Senior Manager of People and Culture at Bettercloud, Daniel Leslie, Director of Security Intelligence and IT operations at Namely, Marcus Hartwig, Product Marketing Manager at Okta, and Nneka Craigwell, HR Business Partner at Namely, discuss how to build a security-first workplace without hurting your employee experience.
