Halifax Benefits Summit

The 2017 Halifax Benefits Summit

Growing Pains


Atlantic Canada’s population is growing at a slower rate compared to other parts of Canada. As the Nova Scotia workforce ages, how are health trends impacting the workforce? How can employers make their workplaces more appealing to young employees and what’s the role of benefits offerings in attracting and retaining them?

The Benefits Canada first-ever Halifax Benefits Summit will showcase informative presentations that will look at health benefits trends in Atlantic Canada.

This is a half-day conference. The Halifax Benefits Summit will cost $49.00 plus tax.

Who Should Attend?

All employers responsible for benefits plans, as well as brokers, benefits consultants and group insurers, are welcome to attend.

HALIFAX BENEFITS SUMMIT SPEAKERS

 

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

 

Karen Foster

Karen Foster is an associate professor of sociology and the Canada research chair in sustainable rural futures for Atlantic Canada at Dalhousie University. Her research and writing spans the sociology of work, political economy and historical sociology, and emphasizes how government policy and everyday life intersect. She studies economic issues from a sociological perspective, with her research projects ranging from the history of productivity as a statistic and a concept, to the potential for "import replacement" in rural Atlantic Canada, to generational divisions at work, to young peoples' experiences on social assistance. In addition to her scholarly work, she has also written about these topics for print media, such as the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives and The Tyee. Her recent (2016) book, Productivity and Prosperity: A Historical Sociology of Productivist Thought (University of Toronto Press), explores how the notion that higher productivity yields greater prosperity for ordinary people persists, despite mounting evidence to the contrary.
