Leaders to gather in Monte Carlo at Employee Benefits Summit 2009

The most influential reward professionals will gather at the Employee Benefits Summit in Monte Carlo this month.

The event, which runs from 3-5 June, will kick off with a talk by global economist Roger Nightingale on ‘The economic downturn and the impact on salaries and pensions’, covering the shift from defined benefit to defined contribution pensions, and how to keep staff motivated in a recession.

Day one will also see Tim Jones, chief executive of the Personal Accounts Delivery Authority, discuss what employers need to consider in the run-up to 2012, and Will Cavendish, director of the Cross- Government Obesity Programme at the Department of Health, who will talk about employee health and wellbeing.

Senior benefits professionals from companies including Debenhams, GlaxoSmithKline, BP, PricewaterhouseCoopers, UBS, Nationwide and Sony Pictures will be among the delegates attending the summit.

Delegates will also attend a series of interactive workshops run by sponsoring partners, which will cover topics ranging from designing total reward strategies to cutting reward costs, and the future of employee benefits.
