Innovative ideas. Expert opinions. Knowledge and experience. HCW has a wealth of subject matter experts that initiate discussions, explore ideas and promote education within the employee benefits industry. We speak on topics that range from comprehensive benefit strategy development, traditional insurance brokerage services, regulation compliance, worksite wellness initiatives, consumer driven health plans, benefit communications strategies, healthcare reform and much more.

HCW participates in a wide array of industry organizations and associations to ensure we are educating our clients proactively on compliance issues and policies, instead of merely reacting to them. Our speakers are recognized for a commitment to knowledge and are available by request with an array of speaking topics for your association or group meeting.
