Desperately Looking Forward to 2021

On November 16, 2020

The end (of 2020) is near, and we are anxiously looking forward to 2021.  Between the Presidential Election, the COVID-19 Pandemic, and the ACA’s “Day in Court” before SCOTUS, any one of these ongoing topics would be enough to keep us busily planning for what is to come.  Suggesting that 2021 is poised to be one of the busiest years in our industry’s history might be an understatement.  At times, it may be overwhelming to keep up with everything that is impacting us – as employers, as service providers, and as human beings.  That’s why The Phia Group is proud to invite you to enjoy another webinar, where we will be discussing these and other hot topics, forecasting what we expect to see in 2021, and giving you a head start as you – like we – plan, and look forward, to 2021.
