"Beyond Basic Compensation: HR's Fiduciary Responsibilities"


With dramatic increases in liability, HR professionals involved with managing retirement plans need to stay apprised of their role as fiduciary plan sponsors. A part of that role is engaging employees in planning for the financial future and offering impactful options to employees at all levels. This session will provide important best practices for HR and how to be a fiduciary leader for employees throughout the organization.


Participants in this HR Learn program will learn how to:

  • Know what makes someone a fiduciary under the current DOL rules;
  • Take specific actions to stay above the "fiduciary floor";
  • Overcome employee inertia using impactful approaches to financial wellness;
  • Identify important issues to be discussing with the Retirement Plan Committee;
  • Take a leadership role in enhancing the retirement plan for their workforce;
  • Understand and answer the following questions:
    • Are you compensating your highest earners in the most tax efficient manner?
    • Does your organization practice benefit parity or benefit equality?
    • Do your highest earners understand the financial benefits of staying with your organization?
