How many surveys do we all receive each year/month/week/day? In some cases, we even received virtually identical surveys to complete again only weeks after completing them for someone else. Realizing that time is valuable, the regional area around Dane County has been working for the past year on how we can all work smarter rather than harder. This session will share how partnering with Skyward, Forecast5, and about 30 districts in our area has transformed how we receive and compare our salary data.

Our employees' wants and needs have changed significantly over the years as a result of Act 10 and a shift in generational population. As a result, recruiting and retaining top teaching talent has become more complex for Wisconsin school districts. For years, employees have valued the idea of retiree health insurance as the pinnacle benefit. Recently, with the growing concerns of student loan debt and the need for financial education, many public sector employers are looking to provide more meaningful financial wellness resources to meet the needs of new hires and those close to retirement alike. This session will discuss the pros and cons of developing a financial wellness program, as well as practical tips for integrating with your current 403(b) and HSA offerings.
