Happy New Year! 2022 Priorities

We had hoped that 2020 was an unusual year, but as 2021 showed us, COVID-19 is still very much with us and we are still navigating toward our new normal. MBGH will continue to provide opportunities for you to learn how other employers are adapting; engage with national and regional experts on implementation of key strategies essential to achieving business goals; and access to thought leadership on preparing for the future. 

COVID-19 continues to exacerbate and make more visible and urgent health benefit issues MBGH will prioritize in 2022. 

  • Increased mental health and substance use needs due to isolation, stress, uncertainty and more.
  • Recognition that employee health resiliency is essential to withstand the physical and emotional strains from the pandemic and remain productive at work. This is especially true for weight management as obesity is, perhaps, the most important underlying condition leading to severe COVID disease and death.
  • Realization that health and healthcare are unevenly experienced even when health benefits are the same.
  • The business imperative to attract and retain worker with health benefits they value.

And, of course, we will continue our work with members on their COVID-19 strategiesour bi-monthly Health Benefits and Health & Well-Being Peer Roundtables; timely webinars and action briefs; our annual conference and complimentary/discounted access to other conferences; and more!

We look forward to working with you this year to advance our mission to bring employers together to share solutions and to provide tools and resources to manage the cost and quality of health benefits in ever changing times. I think we can all agree, these are, indeed, ever changing times.
