“Many organisations are seeking to restructure their C&B programmes but they do not know where to start especially with the trends and different options available today,” said Aditi Sharma Kalra, regional editor of Human Resources magazine.

“At Employee Benefits Asia 2016, senior HR professionals from reputable companies will disclose their winning strategies and experiences in determining which methods work and which can go or wait.”
