Employee Benefits globally – IEBA 22nd Annual Conference

IEBA (International Employee Benefits Association) is organizing an annual conference on employee benefits from 11 to 13 June 2024 in Brussels. Firstbrokers CEO Jaava Myllyniemi is participating on the 22nd conference. The purpose of the event is to provide an opportunity to discuss, learn and explore a wide range of topics related to employee benefits, ranging from employees related risks to communication and engagement. There are experts from different countries, fields and organizations, and there are about 45 speakers at the conference. In addition, during it, work is done in four smaller groups, which always deal with three different topics. So, there will be a considerable number of discussions on the scale of the entire employee benefits sector.

The keynote speaker of the conference, Cédric Schweizer from the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), will speak on the topic "People risks in uncertain times". Other themes include, for example, the influence of industry, culture and gender on employees' health and the modernization of employee benefits. In the panel discussions, the management of global employee benefits, equality in employee benefits, employee welfare topics and future of benefits will be discussed. The same topics are discussed from slightly different angles in small group discussions. Coming from the three-day conference, there is a lot of up-to-date information about employee benefits and their future.

IEBA is an association that provides training, information and professional development opportunities in the constantly changing world of international employee benefits. The association has more than 800 members. In addition to the development of the International Diploma and the Certified Practitioner Accreditation, IEBA objectives include facilitating the exchange of information between its members on matters relating to international employee benefits.
