Upcoming events

    • September 26, 2023
    • 3:00 PM - 5:30 PM
    • Lockton, 444 W. 47th St., #900, Kansas City, MO 64112

    Register now for one of Total Rewards KC's most popular meetings of the year - Roundtable Discussions. You'll have the opportunity to discuss your burning HR problems, learn from your colleagues, and contribute your knowledge to the topic. 

    A Networking Reception, hosted by Lockton, will follow from 4:30 - 5:30 pm where participants will be able to chat and share ideas.

    Topics being offered for discussion:

    • Lifestyle Spending Accounts - Examine the benefits of an LSA and how its positive impact provides employees' quality of life while also helping organizations to recruit and retain workers. An LSA is a benefit offering that helps employees with expense related to lifestyle preferences, well-being and more. 
    • Caregiving Benefits/Parental Leave - Let's explore how we can help employees transition through life's phases through caregiving and parental leave benefits. 
    • Diversity Equity Inclusion and Belonging - Understand the importance of developing and communicating plans, strategy, policies and budgets. 
    • Comp Strategy/Pay Transparency - Discuss how pay transparency strategies improve company culture, recruiting and retention. 
    • Total Rewards Communication/Employee Engagement - Discuss strategies that improve employee involvement and enthusiasm in both their work and workplace. 
    • Health & Well-Being - Review best practices that companies can implement when they  invest in the well-being of their employees; creating increased productivity and reduced turnover. 

    How it works... Facilitators will introduce the topic and steer the discussion. Participants are asked to contribute their topical issues and share their ideas about other issues. Come prepared to learn something new about your hot topics AND to share your ideas/best practices.

    The last few years have drastically changed how employees and employers view work. Resignation rates continue to skyrocket, and retention rates continue to plummet. Employee recognition, when done right, creates a culture that helps employees thrive. In this session, we'll discuss trends in employee recognition; how to make recognition more central to your company's culture; and how to make recognition more meaningful and and frequent throughout the year.

    How will the deliberations and decisions in Washington impact the benefits world? Join us November 14th to find out.

    Back by popular demand, Jim Klein, President of the American Benefits Council, will provide the inside scoop on how political developments are likely to affect the future of the Total Rewards industry, benefits and compensation practices, as well as health and retirement policy.

    The American Benefits Council, a Washington, D.C.-based employee benefits public policy organization, advocates for employers, connecting public policy and private-sector solutions to shape employee benefits for the evolving global workforce.  The Council works closely with Congress, the White House, executive branch agencies and the courts to champion legislation, regulation and legal rulings favorable to its members’ needs, and to defend the employer-sponsored benefits system from proposals that would add burdens, liabilities and costs.

    Sign up early as this in person event fills up fast.  You won’t want to miss Jim’s balanced point of view and quick wit!

    A special thank you to our Sponsors
