Posted on 1/17/2018

HR technology leader reveals keynote speaker and agenda for annual event series showcasing product innovation and knowledge leadership in employee benefits

WEST DES MOINES, IOWA (January 17, 2018)Businessolver®, a leader in SaaS-based benefits administration technology, today announced details for its Vision 20/18 tour. The annual event series will visit San Francisco (April 12-13), Philadelphia (May 10-11), and Chicago (June 25-26) this year, and take place at the renowned Ritz-Carlton in each city.


Across all three stops on the tour, HR/benefits professionals are invited to join Businessolver to “Be Ready for What’s Next.” A packed agenda for each event features rich networking opportunities and an exclusive look at the company’s industry-first product innovations – including new advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning, refined data analytics, and enhanced user experience to further personalize employees’ benefits journey. There will also be client case study presentations and industry expert panel discussions addressing key topics that matter most to today’s HR professionals. Also, new for 2018: in-person, hands-on training to assist clients in maximizing Benefitsolver® platform functionality and performance. Additional details for all three Vision 20/18 events are available at

“As the American workforce grows more complex and diverse, so must benefits programs and the technology that supports them,” said Jon Shanahan, Businessolver President and CEO. “Rather than pigeonhole today’s employees into yesterday’s benefits and tech systems, we invite HR/benefits professionals to join us in reimagining the benefits world and gaining the tools they need to make sure their organizations are ready for what’s next.”

Across all three locations, attendees will have two opportunities to hear from award-winning leadership and workforce development expert Cy Wakeman. She will deliver the keynote address as well as deliver an exclusive, half-day training session hosted on the front of each Vision event. The dedicated training, billed as the “Readiness Summit,” will give attendees in-depth, personalized insights based on Wakeman’s no-drama, reality-based leadership approach – detailed in her New York Times bestseller, “No Ego: How Leaders Can Cut the Cost of Drama, End Entitlement and Drive Big Results.”

Attendees will leave the Readiness Summit training armed with a copy of “No Ego,” as well as readiness tools and practical strategies to effectively greet change, quickly align and adapt, and deliver to meet the competitive demands of the market and customers. Wakeman will use her no-nonsense delivery to provide tips to help HR/benefits teams shift organizational direction and energy from “why we can’t” to “how we can.”

“I hope Vision 20/18 attendees dig in and enjoy the concepts I put forth in ‘No Ego,’” Wakeman said. “I’m looking forward to communicating how our research and our principles can help them be better leaders and drive real results.”

Businessolver also announced its Vision 20/18 sponsors, a top-tier lineup of leading providers in the employee benefits field: Transamerica Employee BenefitsDiscovery BenefitsVoya FinancialAllstate BenefitsUltimate SoftwareInfoArmorMetLife, and Unum.
