    Engaging and Empowering Your Medicare-Eligible Employees

    Medicare is different from choosing health insurance from an employer-sponsored plan.  Medicare and the plans that go with it can be confusing and stressful.  Whether your Medicare-eligible employee decides to retire at age 65 or continue working past age 65, Medicare-eligible employees pose HR challenges. 

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Develop a clear understanding of the basics of Medicare.

    2. Understand the role of HR and the Medicare-Eligible employee.

    3. Develop strategies for HR to implement that positively impacts your organization

    Our speaker, Elizabeth (Liz) England, SPHR:

    Liz also serves as the Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors for the Summit County Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health (ADM) Services Board and as President of Guardians Advocating Child Safety and Protection (GASP).
