Employee Benefits to 65 and Beyond - Age-friendly Planning for Organizations

Special thanks to Kate Milne of Cardea Health Consulting,

for the invite to join this episode of her

"Midlife Women at Work Fireside Chat" series

Did you miss this engaging, timely, & thought-provoking conversation??

Send us a note on our Let's Connect page and we'll get a link to you.

Employers have an opportunity to engage midlife & older workers for their experience, knowledge, skills, and succession mentorship and as a critical part of the "Great Resignation" solution.

A missing piece of the puzzle has historically been employee benefits as many employers end coverage at the “traditional” retirement age of 65.

However, more people are delaying retirement (by choice or necessity) due to the pandemic, increasing cost of living, market volatility, social and personal values, and simply because they enjoy their work.

Join us to discuss ...

  • The value of attracting & engaging midlife and older employees in your talent strategy.

  • Potential risks & opportunities employers should consider when designing benefits for the age 65+ workforce – including DEI, legal, cost, and insurability.

  • Ideas for employers to increase productivity & engagement – and mitigate costs – through strategic health promotion and support initiatives tailored to midlife & older team members.

We'd love to hear from you. When registering, please add your questions that you'd like addressed by the panelists.
