SESSION 2: DIGITAL DISRUPTION: MAXIMIZING BENEFITS ENGAGEMENT AND RETURN ON INVESTMENTHealth
For leading organizations, creating and executing a reward strategy fit for differing geographies, office environments and workforce demographics is challenging enough. But ever-increasing employee expectations of support for their mental and physical well-being as well as technology add another dimension of complexity for executive and HR teams alike. So how do benefits and technology fit in this rapidly changing HR landscape?
In this session, we explore whether employees' changing needs and expectations are being met by employers. We also examine how employee satisfaction with benefits impacts work experience, loyalty and connection with employers. With leading employers using technology such as Mercer's Darwin solution to offer a personalized benefits approach, maximum engagement and maximum return on investment are possible. This session shares the experiences of the disruptive pioneers who are empowering their people and transforming their approach to benefits management.

SESSION 3: HEALTHY, WEALTHY AND WORK-WISE — THE NEW IMPERATIVES FOR FINANCIAL SECURITYWealth
It's time to retire retirement. People expect to spend 15–20 years in retirement, but without better planning, many will outlive their income. Two out of three adults expect to live past 80, but only one in three is confident of having enough money to do so. Sixty-eight percent of people globally don't ever expect to retire or expect to keep working after retirement. Eighty-six percent say continuing to develop professional and personal capabilities is important.
Healthy, Wealthy and Work-Wise is an initiative that equips all decision-makers — governments, employers and individuals — with the insights, data and technology-driven solutions needed to create a new people experience. Join us to explore what leaders believe will be the biggest advancements impacting how people live, work and save — including structural and technological changes needed to address the financial security gap of at-risk segments.
