    Brought to you by UBS and the Jefferies/Bret Wealth Management Group

    Financial wellness is more than a buzzword. How people feel about their finances can have a ripple effect on every part of their lives—whether that’s their ability to prepare for a financial emergency, to save for the future, or to be truly present at work. Yet organizations have only recently started prioritizing these issues in the workplace. As the topics of financial wellness and leaves continue to gain traction, you may be wondering what your company can do to support your employees and how these offerings are giving organizations an edge in recruiting, retaining and engaging talent.

    Join UBS and the Bukaty Companies for a speaking engagement where you can learn more about financial wellness, leaves and how forward-thinking companies are improving their bottom line by offering this benefit to their workers.

    How will the deliberations and decisions in Washington impact the benefits world? Join us to find out.


    Back by popular demand, Jim Klein, President of the American Benefits Council, will provide the inside scoop on how political developments are likely to affect the future of the Total Rewards industry, benefits and compensation practices, as well as health and retirement policy.


    The American Benefits Council, a Washington, D.C.-based employee benefits public policy organization, advocates for employers, connecting public policy and private-sector solutions to shape employee benefits for the evolving global workforce.  The Council works closely with Congress, the White House, executive branch agencies and the courts to champion legislation, regulation and legal rulings favorable to its members’ needs, and to defend the employer-sponsored benefits system from proposals that would add burdens, liabilities and costs.


    Sign up early as this event fills up fast.  You won’t want to miss Jim’s balanced point of view and quick wit!
