Meet EBN’s 2018 Digital In­no­va­tors

Employee Benefit News - - Contents - By Kathryn Mayer

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.
