December 6, 2023 at 11:00 AM PST/ 2.00 PM EST


Non-cash benefits can be a vital part of your rewards and compensation strategy, providing massive value to your employees and a competitive edge in both talent acquisition and retention. 


But how do you convey this value? How do you frame them to prospective recruits? How do you make sure that your existing employees use them? And how do you choose the right benefits that will make a real difference to your people? 


In this webinar, our Co-founder Skai Dalziel will be joined by a panel of experts to discuss all things related to non-cash benefits. Our guests include Lisa Wallace, Co-founder and Co-CEO of Assemble, Octavio Cardenas, Managing Director of Employee Rewards at Alpine Rewards, and Shelley DaCosta, former Vice President of Total Rewards at RSA Canada and Head of Global Rewards at Blackberry.
