The new initiative will include tools and protocols to promote improved lifestyle choices that inspire a healthier culture for ABA members, their employees and their families.
According to Mr. Norris, “This new capability, called “ABI Benefit Solutions” will help law firms strategically develop high-quality, cost-effective health care and other benefit programs that support the recruitment, engagement and retention of talent.”
JMB Insurance Senior Vice President Bruce R. Schlesinger added, “Given the cost and importance of benefits today, all businesses, including law firms, must be diligent in identifying problem behaviors and designing benefit programs that will influence change.
