Does your employee benefits communication strategy consist of printed word documents posted in employee common areas and an occasional email from the HR department?

You might have killer benefits and compensation packages – but what difference does it make if employees and recruits don’t know about it?

Clearly communicating and educating your employees about your company benefits is just as important as actually administering and managing benefits. HR is complicated enough, and communications are easy to overlook, despite how important they might actually be.

Does your HR department need help flexing their marketing muscles?
Why Outsource Employee Communications?

Many companies are relying on communications outsourcing to take the stress out of employee benefits. Creating engaging and visually-appealing content and actively scheduling and managing communications is time-consuming, which is exactly why partnering with a benefits communications expert can be a win-win.

Better Education

Better benefits education is the precursor to better benefits decisions! In a recent survey, almost 50% of US workers reported that making choices about health insurance is “very stressful”.  Alleviate this pain point by incorporating easy to access and understand educational components into your benefits communications.

Higher Enrollment

By informing employees of the value of their benefits, overall participation will increase. How can employees take advantage of perks and programs that they don’t know about? Make benefits front and center with clear communication initiatives.

Improved Health

An enrollment a day keeps the doctor away! While we might be a little confused on our adages, we are sure about the correlation between health coverage and overall wellness and productivity. Keep your employees happy and healthy by improving enrollment participation through strategic education and communication.
