This month we welcome Mike Cody and Brian Owens, both with Lovitt & Touche. 

Mike will be presenting: Healthcare Update:  Reform or Replace and Marketplace Developments

 The ACA has been with us for over 7 years. Now we may have the AHCA.  It passed the House on May 4th and is now in the Senate. How will this legislation, if enacted, affect you and your clients?  What other marketplace developments have emerged since the ACA was passed?  Private Exchanges have taken root in response to the public exchanges.  How do Private Exchanges function and why would a business owner consider offering a Private Exchange to their employees?

Brian will be presenting: The Perspective Based Safety Culture - How's Your Chain Holding Up?

How can a company expect to implement and sustain a safety culture, even one grounded in behavior, without first taking into account what created the behavior in its employees in the first place?  Most organizations interested in developing a behavior based program jumped in mid-stream, starting with and focusing on behavior.   The true value for cultural buy-in lies not in the OSHA standard, the company safety manual, or the even the clever safety slogan brandished on the wall poster, but rather something they already possess, their own humanity.  If utilized to its full potential, perspective can help form solid links of chain, creating a chain we can all feel completely safe putting under a load.
