HealthEquity Forum to Unveil 2024's Top Employee Benefits Trends: AI, Cost Management, and More
The panel will feature
- Tackling Rising Healthcare Costs:
HealthEquityrecently found over 60% of benefits leaders list ‘cost’ as their top concern (research from 2022—Making HSAs work smarting). Panelists will highlight strategies to combat escalating healthcare costs. The discussion will center on balancing costs, while offering robust benefit options, while exploring the growing trend of self-directed benefits in 2024.
- Elevating Benefits Literacy Across Diverse Workforces: Addressing benefits literacy, the panel will also focus on the challenges of conveying complex benefits information to diverse workplaces. Data shows that employees feel under-informed about their benefits. The event will be a springboard for discussing approaches to improving benefits understanding — and the outsized impact those efforts can have.
- Meeting Employee Needs for Wellbeing and Flexibility: Employees continue to appreciate FSAs and HSAs in benefit offerings for wellbeing and flexibility for healthcare spending. In fact, 67% of FSA and HSA users report they can take better care of their health (compared to 50% of FSA non-users and 40% of HSA non-users).1 The panel will explore how to create flexible and wellbeing-focused benefits, and the importance of responsive benefits design.
- The Growing Use of AI in Benefits: The panel will touch on some of the ways AI could play a transformative role in benefits administration. With
HealthEquityand many of its peers working to leverage AI to improve customer experiences, the conversation will highlight the opportunity AI may play in reshaping benefits management.
"These trends are not only shaping the future of employee benefits, but they are also reshaping how we think about work and wellness," said
