The Action Group’s 2020 Annual Employer Benefits Survey, is a unique and important way to gain insight into comprehensive health plan benefits benchmarks and innovations from Minnesota employers. FREE and CONFIDENTIAL, the Survey is open to ALL employers with employees in Minnesota.
A flyer with details about this year’s Survey is available here.
“With the New Year comes a new focus on gaining insight into health plan benefit benchmarks and Minnesota employer innovations to inform 2021 open enrollment planning,” says Jon Schloemer, VP of HR shared services for Fleet Farm. View Jon’s new blog about the importance of the Survey to his organization here!
On April 8, 2020, from 9 a.m.-11 a.m., The Action Group will host a webinar to share results of this year’s Survey. Please watch this space for details on how to participate.
The 2020 Survey is now closed. To learn more, contact Deb Krause (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The 2019 Survey Summaries are available here.
We are not postponing or cancelling the event in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, we are developing plans for a virtual event that will ensure the high-value and engaging Summit experience you’ve come to expect while protecting the health and safety of all. Details will be coming soon!
Renowned mental health advocate, activist, founder of The Kennedy Forum, and this year’s Summit keynote speaker, former U.S. Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy, will inspire attendees. He will share actionable ideas for The Path Forward that will lead to lasting change in the way mental health and substance use disorders are treated in our health care system.
Improving workplace mental health is increasingly important for Minnesota employers, fueled by the significant impact on organizational performance and the fact that the current state of mental health and substance use treatment in America is dire — and getting worse (see the recent Milliman Research Report on mental health disparities here). Employers are in a unique and powerful position to drive efforts to achieve and leverage sustainable, measurable improvements in mental health access, care and parity.
“We ignore the mental health consequences of the coronavirus at our peril. Not only is this a matter of preventing panic, it’s about reducing psychological harm, including post-traumatic stress, which has a lasting impact.” ~Patrick Kennedy

This is a virtual event. Details coming soon!
This insight on last year’s Summit from our Board Chair, Ken Horstman, senior director of total compensation at the University of Minnesota, captures it perfectly:
“Time and again at the Summit, I heard from participants that this is a ‘one-of-a-kind’ event, full of conversations that make participants think and stretch their ideas around possible solutions. Many said that in comparison to the conference fees paid for nationally recognized conferences, the content, speakers, expertise, and passion brought to this Summit make it a ‘can’t miss’ opportunity.” ~ Ken Horstman, Interim Vice President of Human Resources, University of Minnesota
