We are pleased to announce that Ian Schaeffer, our founder, and CEO, will be a featured panelist for an upcoming SHRM-GP event on June 30.
The HR Department-of-One Special Interest Group panel event called, Why You Need to Rethink Your Benefits Package will provide an interactive virtual discussion about unique benefit package options for hiring, retention, and retirement.
Ian will be speaking about the value of incorporating Medicare education at work and why having a Medicare transition team partnered with HR teams creates a compliment in the benefits total rewards package cycle from ‘hiring to retiring’.
This program will be submitted for SHRM-PDC and HRCI recertification credit.
