Executive Forum Headed to Atlanta August 20, 2008

Posted by Reginald Johnson in Business, Government, Life.

Early in the month, the Department of Labour reported released a report on employee productivity that announced productivity grew at an annual rate of 2.2 percent in the quarter. This is determined by the amount a worker produces for every hour on the job.   The ‘growth’ was down from a 2.6 percent growth rate in the first quarter.

The New York Times revealed in an August 8th story that growth in compensation — wages and benefits — also slowed as companies were less generous amid troubles in the economy and uncertainty about their own prospects.

With all of this going on, some people think it would be disingenuous for one to not attend the Executive Forum on Value-Based Benefit Design for Employers.  The forum is set to take place in Atlanta, Georgia, on October 28, 2008.  Expected to attend are people who are in various facets of the emplyment world:  but primarily executives, human resource professionals, and government officials.

Around the country, this Executive Forum has showcased early adopters and industry leaders to help their colleagues shift to a co-pay redesign, improving population health indicators and corporate financial sustainability.

The sponsors of the forum say, “Do not miss this opportunity to discuss best practices on implementing programs designed with a value-based approach to outcomes rather than just on cost necessary during this economic downturn and slowing of productivity.”

Also co-located with Value-Based Benefits Design in Atlanta October 28-29, 2008, is The Executive Forum on Advanced Care Management Strategies for Employer that will help employers determine appropriate course when managing different employee population segments.
