Don’t miss Kevin Curry’s DMEC presentation — Insourcing vs. Outsourcing: Two Employer Journeys
Wednesday, August 3 at 9:15 am.

Kevin Curry, Reed Group SVP, National Practice Leader and DMEC board member

Reed Group SVP, National Practice Leader and DMEC Board Member Kevin Curry will be co-presenting with Valerie J. Pax, Worldwide Director of Absence & Disability Management for Johnson & Johnson.

Together, they will trace the journeys of two major employers — one who successfully outsourced, and one who successfully insourced, absence management. Along with results of a recent Reed Group survey, the presentation will give you insight into their multifaceted decision-making process, challenges faced, and how ROI and outcomes were measured.
