    We're excited to welcome guest speaker Joseph Appelbaum founder of  Potomac Companies in 1990 with the mission of helping employers manage the future cost of healthcare and has grown the company to become one of the premier full service employee benefit brokerage and consulting firms in the Washington, D.C. region.

    About the Program:

    Joseph Appelbaum will speak about employee benefits in the Obamacare world and how to maximize its impact. Under Obamacare, employers are offered the option to "pay or play." But, for most companies there is no choice—they must “play” in order to recruit and retain employees. This not only includes offering health insurance but also life, disability, and the whole spectrum of employee benefits.

    Even the most seasoned HR professional can find themselves struggling to navigate the maze of PPACA. In this session, Mr. Appelbaum will discuss the impact of Obamacare on the employee benefits mix and employer decision-making, along with the importance of insurance benefits as a mandatory piece of the total compensation puzzle. The session will breakdown the basics of PPACA and discuss ways employers can use benefits as a recruitment and retention tool. By strategically building a comprehensive benefit package, companies can ultimately reduce turnover and increase savings. Taking care of employees is a required business practice in today’s economy that translates into healthier, more productive, and longer-term employees.

    About the Speaker:

    Joseph is a lifelong entrepreneur and started his first business at the age of 13 in Manalapan, New Jersey. He is an active member of Vistage International and cadre, a D.C.-based professional networking organization and is a founding sponsor of Executive Leaders Radio.
