5-Step Guide for Transforming Employee Benefits Communications

Learn the secrets for easy year-round engagement.

Stop making benefits communications a lose-lose proposition for you and your employees

Currently, most benefits communications consist of a large packet of data, one annual presentation, and that’s it. However, employees need to make informed decisions year-round when it comes to their benefits to take care of themselves and their family.

The current structure leaves employees feeling unheard and confused, while employers miss out on chances to increase understanding and utilization of the benefits and increase employee satisfaction.

According to MetLife’s 19th Annual U.S. Benefit Trends Study, “when employees are satisfied with the frequency and clarity of communications from their employer, they are 156% more likely to feel valued and appreciated. 

And an Aflac study found that nearly 79 percent of employees agree that a well-communicated benefits package would make them less likely to leave their jobs.
