Leadership Dinner: Unlocking Successful Benefits Communication

Wednesday, May 18, 2022

05:00 PM - 08:00 PM


1110 W 6th St, Austin, TX 78703, USA

Benefits programs are a huge investment at every company, with the power to attract, retain and engage top talent and improve the lives of employees. But in order to get a return on that large investment, organizations must design and implement a communications strategy that educates and encourages employees to get most of their benefits.

This can be hard, especially when there are so few models of good benefits communications. So, ATC has partnered with Segal to bring together an expert panel, designed to help you envision, plan, and implement effective communication around your benefits programing.


5 p.m. - Networking

6 p.m. - Panel Discussion

7 p.m. - Dinner
