    Sally Crum Wineman, Esq., Western Region Area Counsel for Gallagher Benefit Services (GBS) & Thea Fautenberry, Employee Benefits Consultant, Gallagher Benefit Services (GBS)

    The Future of Employee Benefits: A Shifting Landscape in the Wake of Healthcare Reform :  In a national survey by Human Resource Executive®, 58% of respondents said that healthcare reform would have an extreme or significant impact on their organization, and 44% said that the majority of their time currently was taken up with benefits issues. Despite the recent political shifts, the anticipated impact of the new laws may reach far deeper than any previous legislative actions. It will cause organizations to reassess all aspects of their total rewards and talent management strategies, which are closely linked with benefits. This session will go beyond reviewing the healthcare reform laws and focus on the areas of strategic and financial impact to employers in the near and long term. 

    Sally Crum Wineman, Esq. is the Western Region Area Counsel for Gallagher Benefit Services. Throughout her 19-year tenure in the employee benefits industry, Sally has specialized in developing effective strategies for organizational compliance with rules and regulations impacting employee benefits. A graduate of the University of Montana and the University of Michigan School of Law, Sally has earned acclaim as a speaker and educator in the local business community, teaching numerous training seminars and workshops every year on various topics in benefits compliance.
