Promising to be “bigger and better than before,” the conference plans to welcome 1,500 attendees, up to 100 speakers, up to 140 sponsors and 400 top employer groups around the country.

To view the entire 2011 List of Attendees at the Voluntary Benefits and Limited Medical Conference website please visit http://www.voluntarybenefitsconference.com/list-of-participants.html.

The Voluntary Benefits Magazine was created by some of the original founders and creators of voluntary benefits, limited medical and mini medical plans who believed that this industry and the worksite industry which is a multi-billion dollar industry, was extremely underserved and does not get the attention it deserves.

Thousands of companies provide either insurance products or vendor services and solutions in this industry, and yet there is not a single dedicated magazine or conference for this industry. Employers and agents even to this day do not know where to look for quality worksite insurance carriers, vendors who provide unique solutions and where to find the best mini medical or limited medical plans.

This Voluntary Benefits Magazine promises to provide you the most cutting edge advice and expertise, not by writers who know nothing about the industry, but written by the experts actively involved in the worksite industry who will give you practical advice that you can immediately use, and it will be advice and expertise that will provide you with ROI ( a Return on Investment.). We guarantee our readers that by reading our Voluntary Benefits Magazine each month they will receive an ROI of their time!

Tiny Steps, The Ripple Effect

August 15th, 2011 No comments

By Jonathan Edelheit

I think one of the problems we are facing with the declining health of Americans is that we are trying to tackle the problem on too large of a basis; a macro level, when we should be focusing on a micro level.  I think some insurance companies or employers think we can significantly change the way employees think, act and behave, and so we try to implement large programs to encourage these monumental changes.  The truth of the reality is that we need to think small, atfirst.  We need to get individuals to want to change, and it doesn’t need to be a big step.  Even a little step, can be like a ripple in a pond that has much larger implications, because once an individual takes that small step and  wants to become healthy, a true transformation will happen.   As an industry, we need to focus on where motivation lies at the core of the employees.

Our challenge is truly the fact of that matter that we are all busy in our daily work lives and caught up with family at home.  In today’s culture, it can be overwhelming to fully engage in a healthy lifestyle.  Between the constant distractions on TV, unhealthy food everywhere, and the fact walking has become an art form and we simply drive from place to pace, it can be a true challenge to eat right and find time to exercise.

Here’s a thought- Let’s stop focusing on saying that we want employees to “engage” in healthy behavior, and instead, focus on motivating employees to want to engage in one simple, healthy behavior.  If employees set an attainable goal, one that makes them feel better about themselves when they take action, they will strive  to achieve even more.  Once we can accomplish this, only then can we get employees to engage in an overall healthier lifestyle.
