“Diversity: The art of thinking independently together.” – Malcolm Forbes
The world is still very unsettled about diversity and inclusion. There are so many myths surrounding D&I and many people remain oblivious to the fact that discrimination is still very much a thing today.
Everyone is complicit in this issue because we have all either denied opportunity or been denied opportunity based on a diversity factor. As HR leaders it is our responsibility to be allies for D& I.
Diversity has become a polite, positive, hopeful feel good mantra that does not include any action. Everyone values diversity yet few are really translating it into action. Let’s not just talk about it, but be about it as allies for Diversity and Inclusion.

For employers with 50 to 500 employees, employee benefit decisions are often budget-driven, made in ignorance of intimidating health plan alternatives and leave employers vulnerable to ‘The Big 4’ insurance
For employers with 50 to 500 employees, employee benefit decisions are often budget-driven, made in ignorance of intimidating health plan alternatives and leave employers vulnerable to ‘The Big 4’ insurance carriers. But it doesn’t have to be that way!
Before you decide to accept the annual rate increase, reduce plan benefits (deductibles and co-pays) or increase employee contributions, you should be considering creative strategies like self-funding to help in controlling your costs.
For employers who are ready to take back control of their benefit budget, this course will make the complex world of self-funding simple and applicable to your unique environment. You might even learn about our Self-Funding on Training Wheels options for those who want to “try before you buy.”
