Paid Family Leave Innovations

Join us as we walk through the essentials of creating a family & parent supportive workplace. 

Leave administration and navigating the complexities of new laws that affect their clients is very important to the eligibility of insurance our community is placing.  Qualifying for coverage initially and allowing coverage to extend through a qualified leave entitled to an employee is crucial to maintaining said insurance.  Furthermore, advising clients on how to create policy in light of the new rules that affect them is really important to our community of producers and consultants.

Gain knowledge on current  leave topics and trends, including the latest updates on statutory leave program implementations, best practices and must-knows around this evolving space. 

Get the inside scoop on emerging technologies and innovations to implement strong programs and solutions within your organizations.

We will walk through:

  • Paid Family Leave 101
  • Resources
  • Effective Policy
  • WA State Paid Family Leave Implementation Update
  • Solutions

LeaveLogic - guides employees through the necessary steps to create an individual plan focused on their career, financial and family decisions to ensure a successful parental leave.  

Supporting Mothers and Families in the Workplace

43% of new moms leave their jobs after having a child and millennials identify modern family benefits as a key determining factor when choosing a job. From egg freezing to postpartum care to breast milk shipping, the needs of today's working parent are largely unmet by traditional benefits. Learn how innovative employers are embracing new tools and resources to reduce costs, attract talent and retain family- minded employees.

In this session, we will review

  • Overview of the changing workforce and pathways to parenthood
  • Impact on the health care needs
  • Implications for Employers
  • Benefit Solutions to meet these changing needs
  • Success stories.

Maven - is built on the belief that healthcare is a necessity, not a luxury, and every woman and family deserves access to high-quality care.
