How Intuit uses technology & year-round communications get employees fully engaged in benefits

Fri, Feb 24, 2017 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PST

Intuit is a leading provider of personal finance, small business accounting, and consumer tax preparation software. Intuit has been listed among the Fortune 100 Best Companies for much of the last decade—largely because it values its 8,000 global employees as highly as its millions of customers.
Intuit was an early adopter of wellness and consumer-driven plans, and for the last 10 years has continuously evolved its programs to help employees improve their health and financial security. Since 2007, Intuit’s user-centric benefits website and commitment to robust year-round education has assisted employees in using and appreciating their benefits.
Join this webinar to learn about Intuit’s success and how to apply it to your company. Jen Gentry, Intuit’s benefits program manager and Jennifer Benz, CEO of Benz Communications will cover topics including:
• Creating a multi-channel year-round communications strategy.
• Lowering barriers to access with an outside-the-firewall benefits website.
• Integrating employee feedback and user testing into your strategy.
• Taking advantage of new methods to segment and target communications.
• Applying successful U.S. strategies to a global audience.
• How Intuit’s approach lets them quickly roll out new programs, including their most recent Well Minds mindfulness launch.

Drugs and Alcohol in the Workplace

Thu, Mar 9, 2017 12:00 AM – 1:00 AM PST

Is your team prepared to address employees who are under the influence while on the job? Are you knowledgeable about how to best navigate situations when substance abuse issues interfere with an employee’s health and productivity? Do you understand how these issues are covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act and Family Medical Leave Act? Equally important, do your supervisors and front linemen know how to manage these sensitive situations? In this interactive session, two top employment attorneys and an employer will walk you through employer obligations under the FMLA and ADA and provide you with the best practices on how to navigate these highly emotional situations. They will share real-life case studies and offer best practices to apply in your company. You’ll also learn about mandatory employee assistance programs, implementing drug-free workplaces, and how employment laws impact your hiring policies. Finally, you’ll learn about what happens before and after an employee seeks treatment and how to handle relapses and co-morbidity conditions resulting from addiction.
