Understanding the complexity of employee benefits plans is a challenge even for experienced benefits managers. Employers need to keep abreast of constantly changing trends, laws, and other regulations. Employees need to be able to understand their benefits well in order to be wise consumers and understand the value of their “hidden paycheck.” Unfortunately, most employers have limited resources in this area.
The HM team helps tackle mounting employee communication challenges. With strategic planning and thorough understanding our clients’ communication objectives, we provide custom communication materials throughout the year that will help employees understand Employee Benefit Plans and the issues influencing benefits decisions.
HM offers a variety of the following communication pieces, depending on the unique needs of each client.
