Benefits professionals to receive leadership transformation advice previously reserved for Fortune 500 CEOs and senior executives

Charleston, S.C. – January 7, 2016 – Benefitfocus, Inc. (NASDAQ: BNFT), a leading provider of cloud-based benefits management software, announced today that leadership transformation expert and Harvard Business Review contributor Dr. Peter Fuda will be speaking at BENEFITFOCUS® One Place 2016 conference, March 8–10 in Orlando, Florida. The One Place conference brings together benefits professionals and thought leaders from all corners of the country to discuss and shape the future of benefits management.

Dr. Peter Fuda is the founder and principal of The Alignment Partnership (TAP), an organizational and leadership transformation consultancy. The company has helped CEOs and management teams from some of the world’s most recognizable and successful businesses increase their leadership effectiveness and business performance. In addition to his role at TAP, Dr. Fuda wrote and published the international bestseller “Leadership Transformed: How Ordinary Managers Become Extraordinary Leaders,” and his doctoral research is required reading at universities across the globe.

Dr. Fuda’s addition to the Benefitfocus One Place 2016 lineup of benefits experts signals the expansion of the premier benefits industry conference into a management training must-attend. With employers and carriers still adapting to continued change and complexity ushered in by the Affordable Care Act (ACA), it is imperative for benefits leaders to align their teams around strategic goals and efficient processes.

“Initiating change within an organization is very difficult. In fact, studies suggest that 70 percent of all change efforts fail. That’s why when you consider Dr. Fuda’s 90 percent success rate, there’s no denying the value of his teachings. We’re excited to bring his years of experience and expertise to the benefits community,” said Benefitfocus CEO Shawn Jenkins.

The One Place 2016 annual conference provides benefits, insurance and HR professionals a venue for collaboration, networking, continuing education credits and inspiration. To learn more about One Place 2016, and to register for the conference, visit
