Other than salaries, benefits costs are the largest expense item associated with staffing a company. Do employees know exactly what is provided and how these benefits work, what they cover, what they don’t and how to access the benefits? Human Resources professionals tell us that budget limitations and staffing levels frequently do not permit comprehensive communication to employees that is sure to reach them. How can you provide complete communication to all employees without the high cost? SBCG has developed communications programs for hundreds of employers that do just that.
Are you changing the nature of your benefits? Moving to a Consumer Driven Health Plan (CDHP) approach? How will these new cost saving benefits be explained to all employees? Will employees view this change as a “take back” or see how these new plans share the responsibility for making good healthcare decisions that will maximize care and manage costs? The key is communication.
SBCG works with you to design a communication plan that is comprehensive, consistent and ensures that all employees understand their benefits and how they work for that person and their family. The greater the understanding, the higher value placed on these benefits. As the understanding improves, so does employee morale, retention and productivity. As employee understanding improves, the daily volume of calls to Human Resources concerning day to day questions decreases allowing this department to focus on other critical areas.
