Reinventing Jobs: a 4-step approach for applying automation to work, co-authored with human capital thought leader John Boudreau, presents a four-step framework to give leaders a systematic process for applying new automation to work, supported by dozens of case studies from around the world. Reinventing Jobs argues that the proliferation of AI and automation options calls for a re-examination of the traditional notion of a “job”, yet dispels the claim that humans will be replaced by machines.

As employees think about the affordability of health care now and in the future, 82% see medical costs as their biggest challenge. Based on the Willis Towers Watson 2018 Health Accounts Employee Attitudes Survey, the majority of employees (69%) who didn’t enroll in an HSA say they chose not to because they didn’t see the benefit, understand HSAs or take the time to understand them. HSAs are tax-advantaged accounts that employees and employers can contribute to annually up to certain limits and can be used by employees to pay allowable health care expenses.
On average, employers expect health care cost increases of 5.0%* in 2019 compared with 4.7% in 2018, according to the 23rd annual Best Practices in Health Care Employer Survey by Willis Towers Watson (WLTW).

When seeking to manage rising health care costs, the top priorities for employers are zeroed in on clinical conditions (85%) and investing in employee wellbeing (82%) over the next three years — two strategies to contain health care expenses longer term and ultimately improve workforce performance.
