    The Best of Both Worlds: Saving Money While Improving Your Employee Benefit Package 

    By Taylor Orton 
    Wednesday, December 14th, 2022 

    Tundra Lodge 

    7:30 AM – 9:45AM 


    Ever think you are on a merry-go-round each year, fighting the losing battle between the employee value and the increasing cost of your benefits program?  If so, you are not alone, especially when you are battling the 2nd highest healthcare costs in the nation – right here in Wisconsin.  But today we hope to help you change that, by offering 10+ pragmatic solutions to slash your healthcare costs by 15-20%, improve the healthcare experience for participants, and even reinvest some dollars in some non-traditional benefits that will truly turn your benefits package back into an attraction and retention tool for your organization.  



    Taylor Orton has worked with Cottingham & Butler since 2012 and currently holds the position of Vice President and Director of Wisconsin Benefits for the Employee Benefits Consulting division.    Prior to managing the Wisconsin Benefits Practice, Taylor ran the Healthcare Analytics division of Cottingham & Butler and brought with him an analytical background with experience at Crescent Electric and IBM.  Taylor’s vast experience in both healthcare and data analytics provides our clients with a strategical insight to make better decisions for their organization and employees. 

    Taylor received his Bachelor of Science degrees in Computer Science and Business from the University of Dubuque. He also holds a Certified Employee Benefits Specialist designation awarded by the International Foundation of Employee Benefits Plans and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
