Total Rewards Optimization to Attract & Retain Healthcare Talent

David Kompare

North American Total Rewards Strategy Leader, AON;

Mary Clark, JD

Senior Vice President, AON;

Healthcare organizations are facing a multitude of challenges in attracting and retaining critical talent and reward programs are a leading tool to help address those challenges. Are we providing competitive programs that meet their needs? Are our pay programs viewed to be fair and equitable? Do we offer benefit programs that support a diverse and inclusive work environment? Understanding colleague perspectives on these issues is more important than ever and these perspectives can provide invaluable insights as to shaping future programs. Our presentation will begin with our latest research findings on the challenges facing healthcare organizations in the attraction and retention of employees and the changing values of employees. We will share how organizations are using a Total Rewards Optimization approach to address attraction and retention of talent through rewards programs, including market assessment and survey analytics to truly understand what your own colleagues are thinking and how those perspectives can be used to shape the direction of your reward programs. In the session we will 1) cover tactics and solutions for addressing labor shortages and turnover – where are healthcare organizations investing resources and what’s proving effective, 2) a total rewards optimization framework to shape the direction of and impact talent and workforce challenges and, 3) a real world Healthcare case study sharing how an organization used the Total Rewards Optimization approach to shape their rewards programs and impact their return on rewards investment.

The Art of Letting Go and Living Lightly at Work

Theresa Brockman, MPA

VP Marketing & Business Development, Evergreen Retirement Community

Burnout is real. However, creating deep, profound change in our lives is never easy. We quickly fall into old patterns and our past inevitably becomes our present. This rarely serves our organizations or our peace. Learn how one recovering perfectionist and people-pleaser (*cough* control-freak) learned to let go and created lasting change. Jumping off the hamster wheel can be a scary leap, but with easy-to-implement practical tools and relatable stories, this conversation will help you look at peace and success in a whole new way.
