Next Free Podcast “Take 5 with MB”
Introducing Our Podcast Series!
“Take 5 with MB”
In these 10 minute sessions, we will be sharing insight on breaking news to help you manage your benefits programs in 2021 and Beyond!
I am certain – it doesn’t really need to be said again… but 2020 was a very challenging year for all of us! With all of the in-person conferences being canceled, the sharing of information, industry knowledge and thought leadership around managing benefits has been a challenge. We have recorded and published the sessions we would have normally done at the conferences and have made them available for free to our HR partners. These short podcasts are focused topics to hit key information to share updated trends and relevant information on the marketplace. Hope you take a few moments to tune into one or two of these! As we move through the calendar, benefit planning must continue. We will be touching on the items Employers should be focused on to make the 2021 planning and renewals successful!
You can access the podcast through the “Take 5 With MB” tab on this website or on my YouTube page: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHKi1s5O9dbzbdZDfj6ftdw
What will it take to Bounce Back from 2020!?
Employer surveys show at the onset of the 2020 pandemic, productivity within our workforce rose with the average American worker logging 2-3 hours more per day at their desk. That changed mid-year 2020. As the pandemic drags on, employers are grappling with absenteeism, mental health issues, and chronic issues, all of which have reached record heights. Over the last two decades, we have seen chronic illness in The United States grow by 7-8 million people every 5 years. It is going to get worse – but employers can help by introducing key initiatives into their benefits programs now. Our goal is to help you – help your members. We do this with keenly designed programs that incent members to understand their conditions, and with that knowledge improve their health status. The good news – MEDICAL ADVANCEMENTS have been a game changer in the last 24 months! There are new technologies and pharmaceuticals that can dramatically help the sickest people in your population! Come join us – we all need some good news these days!
I promise you will leave this session hopeful and seeing change as a very positive outlook for our benefits programs in 2021 and beyond!

While most of the conferences will be canceled for the foreseeable future, I want to invite you to stay connected with us via our free webinars.
In the meantime – Stay Well and Healthy! and try this perspective shift:
Instead of seeing “social distancing” and travel bans as panic, try seeing them as acts of mass cooperation intended to protect the collective whole. This plan is not about individuals going into hiding. It’s a global deep breath…. An agreement between humans around the planet to be still. Be still, in hopes that the biggest wave can pass without engulfing too many of the vulnerable among us.
