This session will discuss findings from the MetLife Benefits Broker and Consultant Study-a ground-breaking national research survey of U.S. employee benefits brokers and consultants, that explores emerging trends shaping the employee benefits marketplace today from a broker and consultant perspective. It takes a comprehensive look at how brokers expect these changes to impact their business models, together with the strategic and tactical solutions they are exploring in response–especially in the context of health care reform. Intriguing insights will be revealed on broker attitudes, concerns and expectations about industry pressures and challenges. A must-attend for brokers who need to know how to competitively differentiate themselves and their services in this new landscape.
