In this Member Workshop with CAAT Pension Plan, explore what simple and yet, valuable upgrades to the employee experience can do for your organization and how leading businesses are winning over talent.

Event Information

Surveys show that 7 out of 10 Canadians would prefer a better pension over a salary increase*. 

With a potential economic slowdown looming, organizations urgently need cost-neutral solutions that enhance the employee value proposition to retain top performers and grow as trends improve. Pensions are becoming a key differentiator for businesses of all sizes that want to stay ahead of the competition as the race for talent stretches into a marathon.  

Join Derek Dobson, CEO and Plan Manager of CAAT Pension Plan, as he addresses key business challenges and what he’s hearing from leaders on the emerging drivers of employee engagement and productivity. He will examine why employers like Conference Board of Canada, Sanofi Pasteur, Jamieson, and Brinks are partnering with a non-profit pension plan to prevail as employers of choice, reduce turnover, and enhance workplace wellness – while protecting the bottom line. 

Register for this interactive session today (it's FREE to attend)!

Key learnings:

  • Actionable solutions to improve employee productivity, engagement, attraction and retention
  • Strategies to mitigate business risks and retain talent long-term without increasing costs
  • Shareable business case on how better workplace pensions support organizational goals, including ESG and CSR missions.
