EB RISE II: HR and Finance Conference will be held on June 8 | Corporate Synergies

Camden, New Jersey, May 4, 2021—Corporate Synergies is announcing its annual HR and Finance conference, EB RISE II on June 8, 2021. The full-day event features subject matter experts sharing their health & welfare benefits and related cost-containment knowledge through the convenience of a remote platform with a focus on interactivity and connection.

“Presenting this conference is a point of tremendous pride for us and a highlight of the year,” said Mike Lisa, Corporate Synergies’ co-president and CEO. “We thrive on bringing people together to share experience and advice. We know the questions and concerns our clients bring us, and these sessions emerged directly from those and other industry trends we’ve identified.”

EB RISE II, held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET, Tuesday, June 8, includes expert-led SHRM and HRCI accredited sessions, roundtable discussions, a virtual Exhibit Hall, downloadable resources & videos, and one-to-one networking opportunities with peers. Attendees can end the day with a virtual happy hour and those especially engaged could even win prizes from our sponsors.

“Our benefits experts are dedicated to following and demystifying the frequent changes to the benefit landscape—and this year has been more turbulent than most,” added Lisa. “Passing on our benefits expertise, and that of our partners, to provide employers with actionable advice and ways to manage costs, culture and compliance is the core of our business practice.”

Attendees can choose to join sessions from three virtual breakout rooms:

  1. Compliance:
    • Three COVID-19 Relief Regulations: Impact to your Benefits & the Bottom Line
      Corporate Synergies’ ERISA attorney Dan Kuperstein and benefits expert Pam Smith examine how three impactful COVID-19 relief rules work and how they could impact plan renewals and claims in 2021.

      equity & inclusion; emotional effects of physical distancing; personal & family safety concerns.
    • COVID-19 and Employee Mental Health

    HIPAA attorney Kenneth Rosenberg and labor attorney Elizabeth Litten from Fox Rothschild join Corporate Synergies’ ERISA attorney Dan Kuperstein to discuss key privacy, labor & employment, and employee benefits laws to know when developing (or modifying) pandemic-related workplace policies.
  • They’re Here! A Paranormal Look at Paid Family & Medical Leaves
    They’re here, and they’re scary! Paid family & medical leave laws are now a reality. Reliance Standard’s Jim Huebner and Marti Cardi will discuss the latest information regarding employee rights and employer obligations, options and considerations for these mandatory leave benefits.

This year’s conference also adds new interactive features and enhanced networking opportunities. Attendees can begin building out their profile upon registration and upload their headshot for a more personalized experience. They can chat with each other one-on-one in the Networking Lounge and exchange electronic business cards. Additionally, speakers will be answering questions live during sessions. For a fully immersive experience, attendees can access Virsa, their personal AI, to get tailored recommendations enhancing your day’s activities.

An expanded Exhibit Hall will feature booths for employee advocacy, health and wellness, benefits administration and employee engagement, in addition to our exhibitor sponsors: Reliance Standard and HTA Financial Services.
