Recent Webinars If a Private Exchange Is Right for You




Date: Sept. 13, 2016

Time: 2:30 p.m. ET


Starbucks recently made headlines when it announced that it will offer its employees healthcare coverage via a private exchange, one of the largest and highest-profile companies to do so.


Yet, adoption of the private exchange model isn’t happening as quickly as originally projected, especially among larger employers. What gives?

Sean Clem, vice president of technology, marketplace and engagement solutions at Pacific Resources Benefits Advisors, has been studying the exchange marketplace since the solution was first introduced to the marketplace. During the past 18 months, he has helped large employers assess the private-exchange landscape to better understand their options for delivering benefits to their employees. Because Pacific Resources does not offer an exchange or own any technology, he is able to take an objective view of private exchanges.

In this webinar, Sean will help employers understand what it means to evaluate a private exchange. He will:

*                     Define what a private exchange is – and what it is not. He will also offer insights into how employers define exchanges.

*                     Give an overview of the private-exchange marketplace – what he and others at his firm are seeing at client organizations, and what the research tells us.

*                     Differentiate between the many audiences that may be moving to a private exchange – active employees at both large and small employers, as well as the retiree population (pre-65 and Medicare-eligible).

*                     Discuss an objective approach to evaluating private exchanges – looking first at the exchange construct in general, and then at how an employer might evaluate a specific (or multiple) exchange for alignment with its overall benefits strategy.

Sean will also outline some general next steps for any employer that is wondering if they should move its employees to a private exchange.

 Leveraging HR Technology to Transform Talent Management




Date: May 17, 2016

Time: 2:30 p.m. ET


Each year, Sierra-Cedar conducts the longest-running HR systems survey in the industry, tracking the adoption plans, deployment approaches and outcomes achieved from today's HR technologies. Join the firm’s Stacey Harris and Erin Spencer of Sierra-Cedar as they share insights on HR-technology transformations and strategies gathered from more than 1,200 organizations around the world. Trends predict that 2016 will herald a new era for HR technology, one that is cloud-based, mobile-enabled and data-driven. Organizations that take advantage of these new capabilities will be better prepared to engage tomorrow’s workforce and achieve desired organizational outcomes.

No two organizations are exactly alike—yet traditional technology best practices often assume they all share factors in culture, size or makeup. This year, Sierra-Cedar decided to look deeper into its annual Sierra-Cedar HR Systems Survey findings to identify three types of organizations based on specific practices and approaches to business: top performing, data-driven and talent-driven organizations. This webinar will explore how these organization types are transforming their technologies, and will also discuss broader themes in HR technology transformations and their impact on businesses’ talent-management practices and outcomes.

During this webinar, Harris and Spencer will discuss these forward-looking HR technology topics:

·         How are organizations moving to a modern HR-technology environment?

·         How are HR-service-delivery models evolving?

·         What does the future look like for data-driven, talent-driven and performance-driven organizations?

·         What do wearables, rewards and engagement have to do with HR technology of the future?

Date: March 16, 2016

Time: 2:30 p.m. ET


Human capital is increasingly recognized as a fundamental driver of business success—or failure—and, therefore, an essential business priority. Quite simply, top-quartile companies that invest in talent achieve more growth in total shareholder return than bottom performers. How can HR leaders link strategy to sustained value creation, ensure that this vision is prominent within the C-suite and that accelerating value is seen as a core capability of the CHRO role?


Broadening the view and scope of the HR profession opens the door to new impact and possibility. This is the time to think big. It is an understatement to say that we are on the precipice of a sustained period of change. Rather, this is an inflection point for our profession and we have a choice: We can play it safe, making small adjustments, or we can embrace the challenge of transformation and driving sustained value. We need to anticipate the shifts ahead and respond with bold and proactive strategies.


In this webinar, Eva Sage-Gavin, a board director, senior advisor with BCG and G100, and former CHRO with more than 30 years of experience in human resources at Fortune 500 companies, including PepsiCo, Gap Inc., The Walt Disney Company and Sun Microsystems, will explore approaches for influencing the board of directors and C-suite executives addressing issues such as:


·         How can senior HR leaders orchestrate integrated talent plans, from strategy to execution, that deliver demonstrable business results?

·         How do leading companies leverage data analytics to demonstrate the business impacts of proposed initiatives?

·         How can HR leadership influence CEOs, C-suite colleagues and the board of directors to gain support for critical HR initiatives?

·         What skills are needed by senior HR leaders to influence strategic direction, drive investment and deliver value?
