Meet EBN’s 2018 Digital Innovators
From Anna Steffeney, who founded a leave management platform, to Sony SungChu, who helped create a virtual personal benefits assistant, these 20 visionaries are disrupting the benefits industry.
From new all-in-one online HR platforms to health management and financial wellness apps, it’s clear that the world of HR and benefits is changing rapidly — and technology is driving much of that transformation. The last year alone saw the introduction of Businessolver’s Sofia, an AI-enabled personal benefits assistant, and SHRM’s Broker Finder, an online platform that provides a national, searchable marketplace of broker candidates — and a myriad of new tech solutions in between.
Meanwhile, HR professionals, benefits managers and brokers are working smarter by using leading-edge tech to increase engagement, help employees understand their benefits and drive down healthcare costs.
Employee Benefit News and Employee Benefit Adviser’s Digital Innovator Awards recognize the individuals who are driving such technologies and making these innovations possible. After poring through dozens of nominations from EBN and EBA readers, editors consulted with industry experts and called on their own field of knowledge to choose this year’s award recipients.
