Program Overview

This year’s HR Labor Forum will look at emerging employee benefits trends with a particular focus on what hospitals are implementing. Our keynote address: “Hospital Employee Benefit Trends: A Blueprint for the New Benefits Economy” - will highlight trends and current best-industry practices. We will also hear from two Massachusetts hospitals - Lahey Clinic and Mass. Eye and Ear Infirmary - about the changes and innovations they have recently made to their benefits structures. After lunch we will feature a legal update for hospital HR executives. As always, we will provide hospitals with a copy of our Annual Labor Survey and conclude the event with our special members-only Hot Labor Topics Update from Ropes & Gray. We hope to see you and your HR/benefits team this year!
