- Benefits Together Conference Series provides forum for meaningful dialogue on meeting the diverse health and wellness needs of employees -

At an exclusive conference series in Halifax (April 19), Toronto (April 26) and Montreal (May 3), speakers and delegates came together to exchange thoughts, ideas and actionable strategies to support the health and wellbeing of today's workforce.

Hosted by Medavie Blue Cross, Benefits Together put access to care, mental health and diversity and inclusion into focus, while exploring the urgent questions and transformational trends that are top of mind for employers in this ever-evolving world of work, including:

• How can employers ensure their employees have timely access to quality care?
• How can employers meet the diverse health and wellness needs of their employees?
• How can employers better support the mental health of their employees?

"The Canadian workforce consists of five generations and a variety of backgrounds working side-by-side," says Alaina MacKenzie, Regional Vice President Business Development, Medavie Blue Cross. "The great variance in wellness needs across groups of employees illustrates the importance of companies being proactive and ensuring their employees can access different types of care at every stage of life. This includes ensuring their group benefit plans provide employees with flexibility and optionality to support their individual health journeys."
