Why are more businesses incorporating mindfulness into their culture? Why are business schools across the U.S. including it in their MBA programs?

In our new world of information overload and constant change, many people are feeling overwhelmed by the emails, texts and information they are receiving on a daily basis.

Join us to find out about the science and business case behind mindfulness and how different industries are using it as an essential part of their overall health and well-being strategy. You'll learn practical tips for getting buy in at your organization as well as some first steps for incorporating the practice into your worksite well-being toolbox. 

Space is limited, so register today! the Problems of Inadequate Sleep and Sleep Disorders 



Date: May 16, 2017

Time: 2:30 p.m. ET


There is growing realization that well-being and performance are closely tied to adequate sleep.  Indeed, inadequate sleep results in reduced productivity and errors, and has cardio-metabolic consequences that mimic the effects of pre-diabetes.  Sleep deprivation can result from acute sleep loss or chronic inadequate sleep -- and the consequences of inadequate sleep can build up over many days.

Sleep disorders such as insomnia and obstructive sleep apnea, meanwhile, are also quite common. Insomnia can be treated with behavioral modifications and there are a wide range of resources available on the web to assist individuals as they attempt to address the problem. Obstructive sleep apnea is associated with obesity, with obese individuals having a markedly increased risk of this disorder. It results in excessive sleepiness and has a significant impact on workplace safety.


Come hear Dr. Allan Pack examine the impact these issues are having on the effectiveness and well-being of employees, and detail specific steps employers can take to help address them, including effective approaches aimed at identifying and treating obstructive sleep apnea and the implementation of education initiatives aimed at addressing the problem of inadequate sleep.

Date: Sept. 13, 2016

Time: 2:30 p.m. ET


Starbucks recently made headlines when it announced that it will offer its employees healthcare coverage via a private exchange, one of the largest and highest-profile companies to do so.


Yet, adoption of the private exchange model isn’t happening as quickly as originally projected, especially among larger employers. What gives?

Sean Clem, vice president of technology, marketplace and engagement solutions at Pacific Resources Benefits Advisors, has been studying the exchange marketplace since the solution was first introduced to the marketplace. During the past 18 months, he has helped large employers assess the private-exchange landscape to better understand their options for delivering benefits to their employees. Because Pacific Resources does not offer an exchange or own any technology, he is able to take an objective view of private exchanges.

In this webinar, Sean will help employers understand what it means to evaluate a private exchange. He will:

*                     Define what a private exchange is – and what it is not. He will also offer insights into how employers define exchanges.

*                     Give an overview of the private-exchange marketplace – what he and others at his firm are seeing at client organizations, and what the research tells us.

*                     Differentiate between the many audiences that may be moving to a private exchange – active employees at both large and small employers, as well as the retiree population (pre-65 and Medicare-eligible).

*                     Discuss an objective approach to evaluating private exchanges – looking first at the exchange construct in general, and then at how an employer might evaluate a specific (or multiple) exchange for alignment with its overall benefits strategy.

Sean will also outline some general next steps for any employer that is wondering if they should move its employees to a private exchange.

 Leveraging HR Technology to Transform Talent Management




Date: May 17, 2016

Time: 2:30 p.m. ET


Each year, Sierra-Cedar conducts the longest-running HR systems survey in the industry, tracking the adoption plans, deployment approaches and outcomes achieved from today's HR technologies. Join the firm’s Stacey Harris and Erin Spencer of Sierra-Cedar as they share insights on HR-technology transformations and strategies gathered from more than 1,200 organizations around the world. Trends predict that 2016 will herald a new era for HR technology, one that is cloud-based, mobile-enabled and data-driven. Organizations that take advantage of these new capabilities will be better prepared to engage tomorrow’s workforce and achieve desired organizational outcomes.

No two organizations are exactly alike—yet traditional technology best practices often assume they all share factors in culture, size or makeup. This year, Sierra-Cedar decided to look deeper into its annual Sierra-Cedar HR Systems Survey findings to identify three types of organizations based on specific practices and approaches to business: top performing, data-driven and talent-driven organizations. This webinar will explore how these organization types are transforming their technologies, and will also discuss broader themes in HR technology transformations and their impact on businesses’ talent-management practices and outcomes.

During this webinar, Harris and Spencer will discuss these forward-looking HR technology topics:

·         How are organizations moving to a modern HR-technology environment?

·         How are HR-service-delivery models evolving?

·         What does the future look like for data-driven, talent-driven and performance-driven organizations?

·         What do wearables, rewards and engagement have to do with HR technology of the future?
