We’ve been off to a fast-paced start in the new year here at Ursa Major Consulting. From small startups to Fortune 500s, we’re bringing industry-leading benefits strategy and solutions to HR and benefits teams across the country and the globe. While the weather here in California has been anything but spring-like, a new season of regrowth is just around the corner and we’re gearing up for two events that you won’t want to miss.
A hot topic for many of our clients is ‘Employee Experience’, but it’s often misunderstood. If you’re interested in learning more about this phenomenon and how it’s marching full-steam ahead in the world of HR and benefits, join me on February 22 for a free Workforce webinar. We’ll have a Q&A following my presentation, but don’t forget to register!
I’ll also be attending the annual Human Resource Executive Health & Benefits Leadership Conference in Las Vegas April 19-21. This is without a doubt the premier event of the season and I’ll be moderating a not-to-be-missed closing panel with three distinguished colleagues from Walmart, Kellogg, and Cantene. We’ll explore how benefits teams can evolve to meet market and consumer demands while delivering real value in the face of skyrocketing costs and outdated ecosystems. Use Promo Code SPK17 and take $75 off your registration and meet me after my panel to say hello.
Lastly, if you haven’t had a chance to check out our expanded services, head over to our thoroughly revamped website to see how we can help you with your employee benefits needs in 2017. Whatever your size or goals, our flat-fee based delivery model and rolled-up sleeves approach can provide unparalleled benefits value to your people and company culture.
I hope to exchange ideas and insight with you soon.
Founder and President
P.S. Don’t forget to register for Workforce’s FREE & LIVE webinar to ask me your questions about Employee Experience on Feb 22.

Our Founder and President, Nate Randall, had the opportunity to speak with BenefitsPRO for a profile titled "How brokers can design workplace benefits to address cost concerns and employee needs". In the interview, he discusses his time running Global Benefits and Employee Experience at Tesla Motors and provides insights into how the employee benefits space is changing.
“At this point in my career, I want to be able to influence the benefits industry in ways that provide more value to everyone—employers, workers and their families,” he said.
Nate Randall, Founder and President of Ursa Major Consulting recently had the opportunity to speak with Human Resource Executive Online regarding recent EBRI research which found the number of workers reporting satisfaction with their health benefits dropping 10 percent between 2012 and 2015, while the number of those who would rather have fewer benefits and higher wages has gone up 10 percent in that time.
"Assessing employee preferences" may be the most critical piece of the puzzle when it comes to designing benefit programs in 2016 and beyond, says Randall.
