The Four Stages of Re-Opening and Employee Benefits
(1 CE Credit)

August 12th at 10am via Zoom

Every business now knows they must have a crisis management process in place going forward. Employee benefits must be part of this planning to better manage cashflow.

Join Us for a Zoom Video Call to discuss how progressive businesses are adapting their benefits plans during the four phases of the COVID-19 shutdown and how you as the advisor can add value and better prepare your clients for any eventuality.

This crisis has exposed the lack of control the majority of small Canadian businesses have over their fully-insured benefits plans.

We will share real-life examples on how the ASO funding model has allowed businesses to control and manage their plans during this crisis and remain confident should a second wave or another shock occur.

We will explain the four stages on how benefits plans can adapt to each stage on a real-time basis.

  • Stage 1: Initial Crisis
  • Stage 2: Gradual Re-Opening
  • Stage 3: All remaining businesses open with new protocols
  • Stage 4: Business as usual pre-COVID19 / The New Normal
