    Topic: How Will Your Reviews Change This Year? 

    HR Professionals often spend a great amount of time and attention on the process needed to effectively review employee performance, whether annually or more often. What if adherence to a prudent process requires a similar level of diligence for the periodic review of your retirement plan? And what if the law that applies to retirement plan fiduciaries supports the notion that an even higher standard applies? This presentation will provide pragmatic thinking on what is required to prudently monitor an organization's retirement plan as well as best practices that HR Professionals can adopt to comply with the requirements.
