From AON: How To Respond To Rising Global Medical Costs


 

Aon’s 2018 Global Medical Trend Rates survey reveals that the cost of health care is rising faster than inflation. In 2017, the global average increase in medical costs was 8.2 percent, against a worldwide inflation rate of 2.8 percent.

To keep workforces happy, healthy and productive, companies should accelerate their efforts in helping employees understand risk factors and begin taking steps to improve their health.

MACC/DC Partner’s Meeting Focuses on Cyber Security


On September 13, 2017 the Manufacturing Alliance of Chester County and Delaware County held an Industrial Partners’ meeting on the topic of Cyber Security.  Charles Sgrillo of Kreischer Miller, a “Certified Ethical Hacker”, presented an interesting and chilling assessment of today’s cyber risks and what all organizations should do to mitigate them.

See this link for his presentation:  InfoSec 101.

In addition to the presentation, the discussion and post-meeting conversation generated valuable information for those in attendance.

We understand the busy schedule we all keep these days; consequently, we strive to provide useful, practical information and peer dialog at each meeting.   Members indicated that the meeting was very worthwhile.

Save the date for our next Partners’ meeting, November 16, in conjunction with Tech360, being held at Penn State Great Valley. We hope to see you there!
