Retirement plans are a vital part of the savings system in America, and plan sponsors have significant responsibility to help ensure these plans are designed and delivered appropriately. However, plan sponsors need help crafting plans that meet the needs of their unique work force while implementing proper corporate governance that allows them to manage their fiduciary duties. To that end, the PLANSPONSOR National Conference brings together a true cross section of the industry: Plan sponsors, retirement plan advisers and providers that support plans and participants meet, also getting to dialog with legislative, legal and policy thought leaders.
As always, the conference agenda will cover current trends and best practices, while discussing what lies ahead in retirement plan design, participant engagement and education, and investment options and solutions, as well as, of course, legislative and regulatory updates. Regardless of your retirement plan sponsor position—whether you work on the finance, treasury or human resource (HR) side of the retirement plan—the PLANSPONSOR National Conference is right for you! If you’re an adviser, the PLANSPONSOR National Conference helps you stay in touch with the challenges your clients face. Join your peers to discuss practical, creative solutions for your plans and participants.
Nicholas Epley conducts research on the experimental study of social cognition, perspective taking and intuitive human judgment. “Most people are intuitive psychologists in their daily lives – wondering why people think or behave as they do. I just happened to find a profession that enables me to answer these questions for a living,” explains Epley.
In his book, Mindwise: How We Understand What Others Think, Believe, Feel, and Want (February, 2014), Epley introduces what scientists have learned about our abilities to understand the most complicated puzzle on the planet— other people—and the surprising mistakes we so routinely make.
