2020 Conference

At Together with Collective Health in 2020, we discussed how amidst the global pandemic, American businesses and their benefits leaders were quickly adapting to new policies, adding additional benefits, and navigating an ever-changing COVID-19 landscape. Our speakers addressed how companies could invest and support their people in new ways to meet the needs of individuals and families, and address longer-term RTW strategies. See the recap of our thoughtful discussions below.
