Benefits on a Shoestring: Tight Budgets, New Strategies

Tough times mean tough choices for HR. But those choices don’t have to decimate employee morale … or your employee benefits.

Even if you’re forced to cut your benefits budget, you can keep the perks that employees value most – and even add some more – by knowing which benefits are most valuable to employees and which return the greatest ROI for the organization.

Think: low-cost, high-value.

Optimize your employee benefits program – and arm yourself with the details you need to “sell” your ideas to the C-suite – with our must-listen audio recording Benefits on a Shoestring: Tight Budgets, New Strategies. Your presenter is Sharon O’Malley, editor of the highly regarded HR Specialist: Compensation & Benefits newsletter, and a long-time expert on work/life issues.

In just 75 minutes, Sharon will educate you on:
  • The tactics to negotiate with vendors for no-cost, low-cost extras that make the benefits you buy even more valuable to employees
  • Which voluntary benefits employees are most willing to pay for themselves – and give you kudos for arranging on their behalf
  • Resources in your community that you can tap to bring free programs and perks to your employees
  • Which benefits you can cut without consequence to make room for ones your employees will really appreciate
  • Little-used benefits that can reap your organization enormous good will and loyalty among employees
  • Small perks that make a big impression on employees during rough economic times
  • Examples of “What’s Working” ideas at organizations like yours across the country

Learn to add new benefits, despite the economy and at little or no new cost. As you trim your staff and cut every unnecessary expense, your benefits program becomes more critical than ever to retain and attract the most productive employees. Look to the HR experts at HR Specialist: Compensation & Benefits to explain smart strategies for saving and even strengthening those benefits.
