2011 Milliman Breakfast

Thank you to Milliman USA, specificly Stephanie Eng, for the invitation to the 2011 Milliman USA breakfast held at Safeco Field. It was a pleasure to see Stephanie and the other consultants from Milliman, including John, Greg, Larry and Connie. It was also great to see friends from the Northwest Compensation and Rewards Forum and from past and existing project work. The panel was very informative and the audience asked good questions of the panel members.

My main take away is that merit budgets continue to remain conservative and the trend is that those budgets will continue to remain tight for the next few years at least. My second take away is that while pay and benefits remain very important, especially in recruitment efforts, the culture and work experience are key in motivating and engaging existing employees.

I look forward to the Northwest Compensation And Rewards Forum meeting in October. It's great to get out and visit with other like minded professionals.
