BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

And the 2016 Benefit Manager of the Year is …


Business Insurance announced Wednesday that Philia Swam, manager of health, wellness and group benefits at LafargeHolcim U.S., is the 2016 Benefit Manager of the Year®.

Ms. Swam has worked at LafargeHolcim since 1998. Last year, she managed the U.S. benefits transition as Lafarge S.A. merged with Holcim Ltd. to create Jona, Switzerland-based cement, aggregates and concrete manufacturing company LafargeHolcim Ltd.

In 2011, Ms. Swam was named to the Benefit Management Honor Roll®.

In addition, Business Insurance named Mike Greenberg, New York-based vice president-benefits at Hudson's Bay Co., to the 2016 Benefit Management Honor Roll®.

Mr. Greenberg joined the Toronto-based retailer in 2014 and was tasked with harmonizing all U.S. employee benefits, benefits administration and benefit communication for Hudson's Bay's Saks Fifth Avenue and Lord & Taylor stores by Jan. 1, 2016.

The honorees were selected by an independent panel of judges composed of last year's winners and benefits industry professionals.

Profiles of the winners will appear in the July 4 edition of Business Insurance.
