Conference Overview

These conferences have two main streams: pensions and benefits, and a focus on attendance and disability management. Two areas that are critical to your organization’s success.

Pensions and Retirement Readiness—Issues and Opportunities

Canadians’ concerns about retirement are in the news a lot these days. And, with good reason. Our population is aging and there are questions about individuals’ capacity to sufficiently fund their retirement. Public policy makers, employers, unions and individuals are coming to realize the need to get focused on these issues now.

Hear the latest about what employers and employees of all ages are thinking and doing when it comes to retirement issues.

For the first time in a public venue, the Conference Board will be providing results from their new research among Canadians and employers on issues related to retirement and retirement readiness. When does planning for retirement start? When should it? Is retirement and funding their future an issue for younger Canadians? Who is planning now? Who has saved enough? How are retirees doing and what advice might they offer employers and young people about getting ready for one of life’s greatest transitions—the transition from full-time paid work to something else? What are employers doing—and what do they feel that ought to be doing to help workers ready for their eventual retirement? The researchers will address these and other questions.

Get an update on the pension landscape in Canada.

You will hear from an expert about potential changes in the pension landscape in Canada. What are the changes – and what do they mean to employers and employees alike?  

Delve into new and emerging trends and issues related to benefits, work absence and disability management.

The incidence of chronic illness and illness-related absenteeism are growing as the population ages. With these and other pressures, the heat is on in organizations to better manage health care costs while creating safe, healthy and high-performing workplaces for workers of all ages. Leading organizations realize that a safe and healthy work environment, effective absenteeism and disability management programs, and a strategic approach to benefits administration can make a real difference to the bottom-line.

Hear the factors that are critical for exemplary attendance and disability management programs.

Hear from the experts about work absence and disability management. What are the latest statistics and what do you need to do to develop a strong attendance-oriented culture? Learn how to position disability management as a strategic issue at the executive table where HR can be positioned as a progressive change agent. Gain an understanding about what is working and what is not.

We’ll focus on information that will help you make critical attendance and disability management decisions, to help you balance cost and benefit, and ensure your organization is an attractive employer with an engaged and productive workforce.

Discuss the impact of an aging population on your organization.

During the conference, take the time to experience a quick “health check up.”
