Today’s labour market favours sellers, not buyers.  You need an edge to get the talent you need in the increasingly fierce competition for skilled employees.  Offering a pension plan can help, but how do you do that without taking on the costs, risk, and work of pension management? In this session, attendees will learn about a new way to offer pension programs and whether it may be the right fit for their workplaces.

  • Executive and senior-level HR professionals
  • Executive and senior-level finance staff including CFOs and VPs
  • General and senior legal counsel with responsibility for labour, employment and pension matters
  • Group retirement / pension plan administrative staff
  • Business owners
