It is with excitement and more than a little trepidation that I share the launch of my new project, the Illuminate HR Podcast. What started as an idea to capture, and share, the great Employee Experience and Human Resources conversations we are all a part of everyday has resulted in learning a new skill and title of “Podcast Host”.
Over the years, I have had the opportunity to have, and listen into, some amazing conversations with incredibly smart people in and around HR. From veterans, to fresh faces, founders, consultants and thought leaders, I have found there is much to be learned by listening to passionate people.
The concept is simple; short (usually no more than 20 minute) conversations with interesting people in the Human Resources space. I hope you will join me on this adventure.

Last but not least, a huge thank you to Lumity, Inc. for sponsoring this first season and making this initiative a reality.
An article in the New York Times last year grabbed readers’ attention with its haunting headline: “Go to the Wrong Hospital and You’re 3 Times More Likely to Die”. The piece was penned following the release of a comprehensive study that examined the vast disparity of patient outcomes (22 million in all) from facility to facility- all over the country.
As an employee benefits professional, the report immediately caught my attention. The topic of patient outcomes and evaluation is one that me and my colleagues have been grappling with for years. Hospitals are risky places, and the hard truth of the matter is that patients have very limited resources outside of personal or provider referrals to help them gauge surgeons and facilities ahead of operation day.
Today, I’m excited to announce that I have joined on with MPIRICA as a member of its Advisory Board. The company’s platform is nothing short of a critical solution in a healthcare ecosystem that lacks sincere evaluation methods. It has all the potential to be the industry game changer. But don’t take my word for it. If you’re in the employee benefits space, head over to MPIRICA’s website and see what it can do for your people.
Founder and President

There are many great companies creating solutions across the employee benefit spectrum - sometimes too many to keep track of for professionals in the space. That's why we created this interactive tool that highlights some of the best and brightest among them. This list is by no means exhaustive; instead, it contains the solutions that we have probed the most and believe provide best-in-class, forward-leaning solutions today.
