Global Benefits and Insurance Leaders to Discuss Best Practices, Trends & the Future of International Benefits in Chicagoland at the 2nd Global Benefits Conference

In two weeks, October 26-28th, 2011, multinational employers, insurers and agents will converge on the Chicagoland area to collaborate and share best practices and new trends in international employee benefits, travel insurance and expatriate benefits for the Global Benefits Association, 2nd Global Insurance and Benefits Conference.

West Palm Beach, FL, October 13, 2011 --( This year’s theme will be streamlining benefits and processes for Multinational Employers and Insurance companies. The focus will be on the importance of innovation in providing global benefits packages to global workforces and innovative ways to reduce costs. The event will also focus on increasing plan member (employee) engagement in their benefits through social media and the internet.

Jonathan Edelheit, Editor-in-Chief of the Global Benefits Magazine said, “This year’s conference will be our biggest ever and we have put together a group of speakers who are the leaders in their industry. As the world globalizes so do many of it’s employers and this is causing a large rise in demand for international benefits programs as we see more companies going multinational. With this comes the demand for employers to be up to date with best practices, trends and other issues in regards to the global benefits programs. When an employer globalizes the compliance and other legal issues become more complex. Employers and other industry participants attend the event to collaborate with each other, learn from each other and to take the information they learn to implement best practices within their own company.”

John Casey, Director of International Benefits for Google - Creating the Healthiest Employee in the World
