Now in its third year, the annual initiative shines a spotlight on the community’s brightest, most forward-thinking leaders. View a complete list of award recipients on the EBN website.
“During a time of sweeping transformation in the HR and benefits landscape, these individuals are finding creative ways to build better employee experiences,” said Stephanie Schomer, Editor-in-Chief at Employee Benefit News. “They’re putting people first by creating better (and more affordable) benefits programs around healthcare and mental health, and changing the conversations around vital needs such as child care and financial wellness.”
Chesney is a well-respected author and industry speaker who has been pivotal in optimizing Rethink’s neurodiversity resources strategy; helping employers better attract and retain neurodiverse talent, employees support their neurodiverse colleagues, and neurodiverse individuals thrive in work and life.
“RethinkCare’s workplace resources fill an unaddressed market need to ensure that neurodiversity is part of every company’s DEI strategy,” said Chesney. “It is a true honor to provide companies with scalable solutions and effective strategies for neurodiverse employees, as well as resources to help families and caregivers support their neurodiverse children at home. Thank you to Employee Benefits News for this recognition, and I look forward to further expanding Rethink’s content so employees have the vital resources they need to thrive.”
Chesney will be speaking on a panel at EBN’s new BENEFITS AT WORK conference, which will be held September 27-29 in San Diego, CA. The panel on September 28th at 4:05 pm Pacific Time, Celebrate Neurodiversity, will teach attendees how to develop a culture that supports and attracts this valuable talent pool.
