On October 30, 2018, Consiliarium Group and Paragon Compliance hosted an employer education session on NYS Sexual Harassment Prevention Law.
In the discussion, Paragon Compliance highlighted areas of the Harassment and Discrimination law and recent changes to the NYS Law and what employers need to know for their immediate and future action items.
Throughout the year, Consiliarium introduces new topics and educational pieces to help inform employers.
On September 21, 2018, the Consiliarium team lead the discussion on Employee Healthcare Transparency Tools and Engagement with HR professionals in the Rochester Community.
As part of the Friday HR Briefing with the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce, our team discussed the need for healthcare cost transparency as high deductible health plans continue to be prevalent, which puts the healthcare decision making into the hands of employees.
Throughout our discussion, Consiliarium outlined various affordable employee engagement tools and resources that aids in the research to find fair market healthcare pricing with quality care. In addition, reviewing healthcare decision support technology when choosing the plan that meets employees’ healthcare needs.
In conclusion, the HR professionals came out of the dialogue asking themselves:
- What are ways my organization is providing employee engagement around healthcare cost and quality transparency?
- Should my organization consider implementing new programs to aid in transparency for employees.
- How does my organization develop strategies so my employees “win” – this can be done by designing (or re-designing) health plans and saving accounts to promote future savings.
Mile-A-Day Campaign Update:
Picture this: Two Teams, 5 competitors on each team (no joke on the meaning of competitors during this challenge), 4 weeks of racking up the miles, some fun office comradery, a prize at the end. And from this, the winning team is announced…..
THE GREEN TEAM!
1st Place winning participants included Keith, Sheryl, Lauren, Becky, and Rich. (Each winning team members received a gift card towards a purchase of new sneakers from our local running store)
Runners Up (Blue Team) included Jennifer, Amy, Joe, Erin, and Caitlin.
But how impressive is this: The Green Team had a combined 770 miles, the Blue Team racked up 703 miles in 30 days. Our firm’s workout effort tallied close to 1,500 MILES! Our company goal was 1,000 miles, Consiliarium far exceeded this.
But most importantly, we all came out winners. From this Mile-A-Day Campaign, each of us benefited from this challenge. Feedback included how much more aware of getting up and moving throughout the day, feeling better at the end of each day, how we now want to continue this to support our physical health.
Now onto to the next wellness campaign to be announced soon!
The 4th of July is here, it’s time to celebrate America and our independence! A day of cookouts, parades filled with red, white, and blue, the sky lighting up with fireworks, and where family and friends get together to be part of this celebration!
From the Consiliarium Team to all- Happy 4th of July!
