Singapore – As healthcare costs continue to climb, introducing healthcare benefits that can attract, retain and engage employees becomes a more serious challenge for HR.

Many organisations are looking for ways to curb the impact of high prices without losing their competitive edge in the talent market.

One of the goals of Employee Healthcare Interactive 2015, Asia’s premier forum on employee healthcare investment, is to present strategies, opportunities and solutions in keeping healthcare and wellness programmes beneficial to employees and overall business standing amid increasing costs.

Employee Healthcare Interactive is an exclusive, invitation-only one-day event for 100 senior VP and director-level HR practitioners which will take place in Singapore on 3 December at the Four Seasons Hotel.

“It’s time for employers to examine the available options and what needs to be considered when it comes to designing cost-efficient healthcare benefits,” said Aditi Sharma Kalra, regional editor of Human Resources.

“The issue is not just about investing in employee benefits but also how to effectively implement them to satisfy the demands of the current workforce.”

Employee Healthcare Interactive 2015 will address issues in corporate healthcare that are considered critical in the decision-making process of HR executives and compensation & benefits managers, such as the impact of rising healthcare costs on talent recruitment and people management.

During interactive sessions, there will be discussions on how the rising healthcare inflation alters healthcare programs and what should be accomplished to mitigate risks and ease the consequences.

A keynote presentation will provide an overview of employee health challenges and cost trends in Asia as well as recommended solutions for organisations.

Another angle that will be examined at the conference is how to leverage insurance to combat worsening employee health and boost employee participation in wellness initiatives.

“At Employee Healthcare Interactive, delegates will realise that devising corporate healthcare programs is both an art and a science,” said Jenilyn Rabino, regional event production lead at Human Resources.

“The event’s interactive arrangement will allow the participants and speakers to openly discuss all layers of issues concerning healthcare costs.”

Open only to director and VP-level in-house HR professionals, Employee Healthcare Interactive will discuss corporate healthcare issues and trends affecting the HR sector, including policy developments, healthcare innovation, rising healthcare costs, data analytics and technology, retirement programs, and wellness strategies.

Human Resources’ unique interactive format promises to make real conversations happen among Employee Healthcare Interactive delegates. They will also receive data-driven insights and expert recommendations during keynote sessions, case studies presentation, panel discussions, and networking breaks.
