12th Annual Employer Leadership Summit
The Minnesota Health Action Group, a time-honored coalition of Minnesota purchasers dedicated to improving health and health care, hosted the 12th Annual Employer Leadership Summit on May 2, 2019.
The pace of change today is rapid, and high-performing organizations are focused on creating work environments that attract the best talent regardless of demographics. This diversity compels all employers to examine the trends shaping the workforce of tomorrow, while embracing the needs and changing expectations of those choosing to work later into life.
At this year’s Annual Employer Leadership Summit, CHANGE @ THE SPEED OF LIFE: Investing in the Workforce of Tomorrow, attendees had an opportunity to imagine the future of the workplace and the benefit needs of an increasingly diverse workforce.
