Human Resources magazine is pleased to welcome Zurich Insurance as the platinum sponsor of Employee Benefits Asia, the leading regional conference dedicated to best practice compensation, benefits and rewards strategy.

Elaine Chan, senior head of the medical division at Zurich’s General Insurance business will deliver a keynote presentation on “how healthcare and well being programmes drive better business results.”

“Our recent research discovered that the majority of employees and employers both considered loyal employees as the key driver of business growth,” said Chan.

“Companies are challenged with high staff turnover rate that may jeopardise business growth, and group medical insurance may be the answer to the true needs of employees – it can help companies to increase staff loyalty and ultimately increase profitability.”

Part of Zurich Insurance Group, Zurich Insurance offers a full range of flexible general insurance and life insurance products for individuals as well as corporate customers, catering to their insurance, protection and investment needs.

The company’s presence in Hong Kong dates back to 1961 and it is one of the top three general insurance providers in Hong Kong.

Zurich Insurance is a leading multi-line insurer that serves its customers in global and local markets. With more than 55,000 employees, it provides a wide range of general insurance and life insurance products and services.

Zurich’s customers include individuals, small, mid-sized and large businesses, including multinational corporations in more than 170 countries.

In December 2014, Zurich appointed an independent research agency, GFK, to conduct research surveying a total of 813 employers and employees (501 employees and 312 employers) with the following objectives: a.) to understand how to enhance enterprise profitability; and b.) to understand mutual expectations between employers & employees.

The results were insightful and Chan will share some of the results at Employee Benefits Asia.

Chan’s session is just one out of 14 insightful sessions featured at this conference. Other companies represented on the agenda include Honeywell, Philip Morris, AECOM, Sanofi, SAS, Fuji Xerox, and many more.

All presenters & panellists, such as Dan Gutin, regional HR director industrial affairs APAC & Japan of Sanofi, are director or vice president level HR professionals with regional responsibility.

It attracts a large audience of regional HR leaders and senior compensation & benefits specialists as well as CEOs, CFOs and COOs closely involved in their companies’ HR strategy.
