Change is now the “new normal” for total rewards teams.  Come learn how Sysco and SimplyConnect have partnered together on a multi-year journey to deliver award-winning communication strategies and great results for the business and employees.

Join us on April 26th for a session that will provide easy-to-use techniques for improving your total rewards and employee communication strategies – more aligned benefits programs, better plans/programs to help improve benefits value for employees, and driving employee action and participation.  Jamie Colvin and Erin Packwood will provide real-world tips and ideas that can help you align rewards strategies with the business and the workforce needs as well as influence employee actions within the benefits program.
