When you consider Affordable Care Act (ACA) compliance mandates and transmittal deadlines, benefits administration becomes a year-round enterprise, rather than a once-a-year crunch during annual enrollment. While workforce and regulatory trends have led to growth in benefits technology, it's important for HR/benefits teams to thoroughly vet compliance partners to ensure true results as the IRS becomes less forgiving of errors and more likely to assess fines.
Attendees will learn:
- Key Q's to ask potential compliance partners.
- Criteria to assess benefits technology platforms to find the best fit for compliance.
- Insight into IRS rule-making & policy details to inform compliance planning.
Presented by: Angel Hower, ACA Product Lead, Businessolver.

Many organizations have not invested in the effectiveness of their teaming ability and, as a consequence, suffer from disappointing results and countless re-assignments and re-organizations. This webinar will focus on the disciplines that leaders and leadership teams must focus on in order to be successful and a methodology to help them learn and implement those disciplines as a team.
