Description:With the national spotlight on race and workplace culture, HR leaders can no longer assume that employees will just “keep working” without being impacted by this sea-change happening around us. While many are eager to engage in meaningful dialogue, they often feel ill-equipped to discuss these previously off-limits topics. In response, HR at UC Davis created the Race Matters workshop series. Join us as we outline our strategy to cultivate meaningful conversations about race in the workplace. This session is sponsored by TIAA.

Description:How do you create a benefits or retirement program that is easy to use, maximizes your benefits spend, and helps participants feel secure, all while allowing you to demonstrate a prudent fiduciary process? The data is clear — it’s all about defaults. Employees have voted overwhelmingly with their dollars that they like using default options such as target-date funds and features, including auto enrollment and auto escalation. The right default option should seek to maximize outcomes, create value per dollar spent, and help participants feel secure. In this session, we’ll explore how new smarter default strategies help decrease risk during participants’ savings year, embed a guaranteed pension like benefits into the program, and keep the overall costs the same or even lower them. This session is sponsored by TIAA.
