ALEXANDRIA, Va. & CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Willis Towers Watson (NASDAQ: WLTW) has now joined the ranks of Argentum’s Corporate Partner program committing to a three-year engagement with an initial focus on developing research related to human capital benefits benchmarking in senior living and risk management practices across the industry. This year, Argentum also sponsored the Willis Towers Watson annual Risk Management Summit.
“We are excited about how this thought leadership aligns with challenges the industry faces in workforce development and human capital needs, as we continue to deliver solutions to meet the increasing convergence of risk and human capital,” said John Atkinson, Managing Partner, Willis Towers Watson.
The partnership demonstrates a significant commitment to thought leadership in the senior living industry. With the support of Willis Towers Watson, the industry will see more dedicated research aimed at growing a workforce of trained, caring professionals and improving operations through innovation and technology.
“We are thrilled to announce this partnership with Willis Towers Watson,” said Argentum President & CEO, James Balda. “More research is needed to produce quality data on the present and future demands faced by the senior living industry. This collaboration will serve to assist senior living providers in making informed decisions to improve their business operations.”
In collaboration with Willis Towers Watson, Argentum has recently published a report addressing the results of a health care benefits survey focusing on trends in medical plans and benefits for senior living operators. The report explores the types of benefits offered, financial metrics, and contribution strategies, and offers insights into emerging benefits and future plans among providers.
In concert with the report, Willis Towers Watson benefits and senior living experts Steve Riedl, John Atkinson, and Michael Pokora will share insights on benefit trends, cost implications, and potential impact of the presidential elections on healthcare reform, as well as what you can do in response in upcoming webinars.
