Communicating with employees year-round about their benefits is important.
Benefits are an often confusing, yet integral part of employee engagement, and employees need ongoing benefits communication outside the typical open enrollment period. Personalized benefits communication allows employees to take advantage of their benefits and helps employers keep up with changing regulations, trends, and needs. While there is no one-size-fits-all solution to communicating about employee benefits packages, establishing a comprehensive strategy that utilizes multiple channels and focuses on understanding individual preferences will help employers provide clear and concise information all year. In this blog post, we’ll explore why year-round benefits communication is vital for HR teams as they strive to engage employees in their culture today – both inside and outside the workplace.
How Ongoing Benefits Communication Helps Employees:
Help Employees Make Informed Benefits Decisions
Employees who clearly understand their benefits are more likely to make informed decisions about which benefits best meet their needs. When employees have access to year-round benefits communication, they can receive timely and accurate information to help them make informed decisions about their benefits. By providing employees with information regularly, they will be better equipped to make choices that align with their needs.
Increase Employee Engagement and Satisfaction
Employees engaged with their benefits are more likely to be satisfied with their overall compensation package. In addition, employees that feel that their benefits meet their needs are more likely to be engaged with their job and less likely to look for other employment opportunities.
Reduce Confusion and Questions
Year-round benefits communication also reduces confusion and questions about benefits. By communicating regularly with employees about their benefits, employers can ensure that everyone is on the same page and that there are no misunderstandings.
Overall, year-round, personalized benefits communication is essential for creating a culture of health and well-being in the workplace. By providing regular communication and support, employers can help their employees to feel valued, informed, and engaged, which can ultimately improve the overall success of the organization.
