As an entrepreneur, you may have left the comfort of a company benefit plan. Now that you’re on your own, you might be considering how to pay for your own health and dental expenses or how to attract and retain staff with compensation and a workplace culture that says you care.
But the world of benefits is confusing. Advertising, the experiences of your friends and family, as well as your own ideas about what coverage should be like make it all very confusing. In this session you will learn
- Why benefits? What motivates business owners and employees
- Individual insurance vs. group benefits coverage
- Plan limitations
- Where to start: cost-effective strategies to attract and retain staff
- Future considerations and next steps
