Seeing Opportunity in Shifting Tides: A study of Employee Benefits Trends

One hour of continuing education has been approved by the Washington Insurance Commissioner's office

This program will examine the shifting trends in employee benefits providing an overview of the key drivers of the past decade. The program will provide insight into fundamental elements of the employee benefit practice:

  1. Seeing opportunity for benefits to drive business goals;
  2. Identifying opportunity to engage employees in the benefits discussion;
  3. The expanding opportunity for income protection and financial security; and
  4. Realizing the generational opportunity in the post-recession workforce.

In short, this program will provide insight into what the key trends are that are impacting the benefits markets, how the best companies are dealing with those trends and how professionals in the benefits market can utilize those trends to improve the benefit packages offered to participants.

The program will draw on the annual MetLife Study of Employee Benefits Trends, now in its tenth year of data collection. The 10th anniversary edition of MetLife's annual Study of Employee Benefits Trends marks a decade of exploring an evolving benefits landscape from the point of view of employers and employees across all U.S. regions, industries and company sizes. Through both robust years and turbulent economic times, the Study has identified significant key findings and insights that have served to inform and shape today’s benefits strategies for employers and their advisors.
