UNFORTUNATELY THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED
As a small business you want to remain competitive – through wages, working condition and most importantly benefits… Not only offering vacation and holiday pay, employees are wanting more…
Employees are looking for Medical, Dental, Vision and other voluntary benefits and offering them does not have to be as daunting or as expensive as you might think. Take a minute to come and ask the professional in small groups about what benefits you can offer to your employees that won’t break the bank. You will have the opportunity to ask questions, learn about plan pricing, ask if your company can benefit from a 401(k) plan, what a POP Plan is and why it is needed, what are voluntary benefits and why employees love this option.
Participants will be split into small groups to increase interaction on each topic.
Topics and speakers include:
- Medical/Group Plans – Interwest Insurance Services – Derek Parsons & Bruce Thomas
- Voluntary Benefits – PCS Insurance Services – Paul Seegert
- 401(k) – Dennis Cargile
- POP Plan/ Section 125 – TBD
Doors Open & Catered Lunch @ 11:30am
Round Table Discussions Begin @ 12:00pm
Event Ends @ 1:00pm
