Benefits Madness was not all fun and games—It gave us a chance to see what innovative employee benefits the fans are really rooting for! Benefit offerings like healthy snacks and subsidized mobile devices were quickly eliminated in favor of more flexible offerings like summer hours and time off for the holidays.

Flexibility is the story of 2022 Benefits Madness and the championship game is coming down to two similarly seeded teams: Flexible work hours/compressed workweeks vs. Remote work/telecommuting. Vote now for your top pick as the madness comes to a close!

Marketing Communications Manager at the International Foundation

Favorite Foundation Product: Foundation Community. It’s like LinkedIn but only for Foundation members. They can post questions, share best practices, etcall with fellow members who also live and breathe employee benefits.

Benefits-related Topics That Interest Her Most: Workplace wellness (especially mental health), diversity, equity and inclusion, behavioral decision making, family-friendly benefits, payroll audits.

Personal Insight: When she’s not busy analyzing the inner workings of her toddler’s brain (does anyone actually know?!), Anne finds joy in home renovation and décor, haiku writing, watching Jeopardy, creating charcuterie boards, and bicycling.
