Part of what we strive to do at Axia Advisory is bring new ideas to our clients. With that in mind, we began a series of publications that we’re calling “Perspectives on Retirement.” A few times a year, Axia sits down with an expert in the retirement field to discuss trends, research, and other findings important to retirement plans. Our goal is to showcase thought leadership that we believe will change the industry.

Our inaugural issue features Laraine McKinnon, Director of BlackRock’s Acceleration and Engagement Program. We discussed the research her firm has done in conjunction with Boston Research on employee engagement. It is an area that has become more important as companies review their benefit programs to adapt regulatory and industry changes. We hope you find the information helpful.

Future issues will focus on the convergence of health care and retirement as well as what is going on in congress that may affect employer sponsored retirement plans. Enjoy the articles and we would appreciate any feedback you have.
