Your Human Resources team thinks about benefits all year long. They plan, analyze, re-analyze, and communicate new benefits constantly. They’ve taken the time to learn and understand the complex ins and outs of benefit plans and offerings, and they regularly talk about these benefits with employees individually and in groups.
Getting employees to become more engaged in benefits education is a high hurdle for most human resources departments. Studies show that less than 20 percent of employees in U.S. companies feel they completely understand annual healthcare costs and deductibles.
That’s why enterprises are increasingly using interactive multimedia video webcasting to improve employee engagement and decision-making.
Benefits administration is one of the human resource department’s most challenging functions. Plan changes and announcements must be communicated to all employees, along with important details about annual open enrollment.
Static text and graphics communications do not engage and motivate employees well, and traditionally have made negligible impact on improving the decision-making and enrollment process for human resource professionals. Studies reveal approximately half the employees in U.S. companies feel their benefits are poorly communicated.
