However, many important goals can be achieved during the open enrollment period, as HR has a tremendous opportunity to communicate with and educate a great majority of their employees at that time.
But with so many moving parts — including benefit plan education, carrier representation, employee meetings, compliance and regulation changes, technology utilization, and more — how can companies successfully achieve their goals during this important time period?
I recently had the opportunity to help answer that question.
In a new post on the MonsterThinking blog (via Monster.com), Catherine Conlan published helpful tips in the article “What you should be doing now to prepare for open enrollment.” I had the chance to contribute insight and best practices on a number of key steps that employers can take today. This includes:
- Conducting employee surveys
- Utilizing online technology
- Developing a multi-channel communication strategy (including mobile)
- Analyze utilization data
