Seattle, WA (October 3, 2018) - Employee health benefits are an essential part of a comprehensive total rewards package aimed at increasing employee retention and satisfaction. However, as healthcare costs paid by employers are expected to rise 5% for the fifth consecutive year in 20191 according to the National Business Group on Health, controlling healthcare costs remains one of the most important goals for employers across the country. Accordingly, employers are redoubling efforts to reduce the rate of healthcare cost increases, while simultaneously providing compelling benefits packages designed to attract and retain top talent.

To support employers in these efforts, Accolade executives will present proven approaches at events across the country, discussing employer challenges and validated solutions that can result in lower costs, better health outcomes and increased employee satisfaction.
