PARK CITY, Utah, July 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- PlanSource, a leading provider of cloud-based benefits administration and HR technology, kicked off the first full day of Eclipse 2017, the company's annual benefits and HR conference. The event brings together hundreds of benefits and HR industry leaders to examine pressing issues and discuss how to build a better benefits and HR experience.
Set at the Montage Resort in Park City, Utah, Eclipse 2017 features dozens of information-rich breakout sessions, general sessions with leading insurance and benefits experts, and world-class entertainment.
Speaking to a standing-room-only crowd, PlanSource CEO Dayne Williams gave the opening keynote address. He outlined a series of recent and upcoming infrastructure investments, product enhancements and new services designed to help attendees succeed in the changing HR and benefits landscape, and charted the company's plan for supporting all aspects of the benefits and HR lifecycle.
"In a time of growing uncertainty around healthcare, it is essential that we come together as an industry to carve out a more complete and simplified way of delivering benefits," said Dayne Williams. "It is my hope that Eclipse will serve as an inspiration and act as a catalyst for driving positive change in a sector directly responsible for helping families get access to valuable healthcare coverage."
Highlights of Eclipse 2017
Eclipse 2017 features 65 speakers in 28 breakout sessions and six general sessions. In the second keynote of the day, Glenn Elliott, founder and CEO of Reward Gateway, examined how work can change, sharing insights on how companies can buck the trend of stagnating employee engagement and enjoy increased productivity and reductions in voluntary staff turnover.
"The world of work is drastically changing, and if you are not changing with it, you will be left behind," said Glenn Elliot. "PlanSource Eclipse is definitely full of changers. It's exciting to be a part of this event and get a chance to interact with like-minded individuals coming together to find better ways of working."
Glenn is joined at Eclipse by numerous speakers and industry experts including Mark Cochran of Johns Hopkins Healthcare, Elizabeth Rhoads of Compassion International, Mark Stelzner of IA HR, Jamie Hawkins of Benefit Technology Resources, Anne Burkett of USI and Brad Mandacina of Lockton Companies.
