Announcing HR Online Programming This Summer

Skip Newberry
June 27, 2016

Each summer our busy schedule for Community events slows down, and we take the networking and fun outdoors for our Golf Tournament and Party in the Pinot. Similar to many of our member companies, summer is also a time of planning where we evaluate how the first half of the year went and what changes we should start considering for fall and the following year.

This summer ‘break’ is no different for our Human Resources teams who are in the prime time of planning and re-assessing their benefits and budgets for the year ahead. Sunshine, barbecues, and kids’ activities can make in-person professional development more challenging to commit to, which is why we are excited to roll out an online series of programming in just a few weeks!

Along with the support and thought leadership of Scott Burton and his team at Regence, we will be hosting a three-part series throughout the summer aimed at giving valuable and timely insights for our HR practitioners. The lunchtime sessions will be free for TAO Members and will be held on the third Wednesday in July, August and September.

Through our close partnership with Regence and our HR Community volunteers, we know the summer months are a time when HR practitioners evaluate and decide on benefits and wellness programs for their employees.

We’ll kick off in July with a focus on benchmarking and breaking new ground. How do your benefits compare to your competitors? And, what’s on the horizon in the fight against rising pharmacy costs.

Tracey Heeter Allen (Woodruff Sawyer) will join Jim Walton (Regence) and Chip Parkinson (OmedaRx) to guide you through tomorrow’s benefits landscape with a focus on controlling costs, delivering value and engaging your employees as health care consumers.

Join us for our first lunchtime session on Wednesday, July 20th at 11:30am. Registration and additional details are here.
