3 Tips for Employers

If you’re ready to offer your employees open enrollment for benefits, your planning should mostly be done at this point. Even so, consider tightening up the following three communication areas to make sure your open enrollment is a success.

make sure to get the word out about the value of your benefit offerings regularly. Benefits can comprise 20% to 40% of an employee’s total compensation, so sharing this information is important to help your company attract and retain the best and brightest.

communicate through channels most likely to reach your employees throughout open enrollment. This means via smartphones and apps for younger workers and print and in-person presentations for an older workforce.

make sure you communicate simply in a language your employees understand. Eliminate jargon to increase understanding. As important, give employees easy-to-reach resources should they have questions.
