In the second webinar of our leadership webinar series, Stepping Up to Better Care, we review the current state of employee benefits and what benefits brokers and HR teams are doing to provide benefits that deliver.

Melissa Dexter, Chief People Officer at Uprise Health, will start the webinar and discuss industry updates and the current state of employee benefits as we approach the second half of 2022. She will provide key highlights from the May 2022 survey of over 500 HR leaders including:

  • Top pain points of employees
  • What part of the benefits process is the biggest barrier
  • How HR teams are using nontraditional benefits

In discussing these top employee benefits concerns, Melissa will be joined by Donte Hardy, Manager at The Ōnin Group, and Necole Grevers, Senior Account Executive at Insurance Office of America.

Donte will discuss the Ōnin experience of investing in more robust wellbeing offerings and upgrading from a traditional EAP to a digitally-enabled program. The Ōnin Group is a privately-held group of companies whose core business is staffing. Ōnin Staffing is one of the largest staffing firms in the U.S., and they empower managers to make decisions locally, so they can be nimble, innovative, and responsive.

Innovation has paid off for Ōnin, and Donte will speak to the robust People & Culture department they developed, what additional digitally-enabled wellbeing tools they incorporated with the help of Uprise Health, and how they saw their EAP utilization rate jump by 161% (from 18% to 47%).

As Ōnin’s benefits consultant, Necole helped Donte and the Ōnin team adopt Uprise Health EAP and evolve their benefits package towards a robust solution that includes comprehensive mental health solutions. She has more than 13 years of experience in the benefits industry, and will share her deep industry experience on how to:

  • Adopt nontraditional benefits solutions
  • Vet available solutions
  • Change your benefits package approach
  • Avoid common roadblocks and barriers

Employee needs are changing, and leading companies are stepping up to provide more comprehensive and effective employee benefits. Join Melissa, Donte, and Necole as they speak from experience on why and how to rethink and reshape employee benefits in preparation for 2023.
