Enrollment season is upon us, and many companies are in an all-out rush to ensure that they are prepared. HR teams become overextended and companies struggle to provide the quality enrollment process that their employees deserve. Some companies take this time to learn from last year’s enrollment process, only to realize that they need additional help. Luckily, these companies have a solution in Benefits Education and Enrollment firms.
Understanding employee benefits is no simple task, and, often, employees need help deciphering benefit plans and making decisions. At PES Benefits, our focus is on educating and empowering employees to make informed decisions when choosing a benefits plan. During enrollment, we work one-on-one with employees, either in person, over the phone, or via video technology, to ensure that they fully understand their benefit options. This not only empowers employees to make an informed decision, but it gives them the ability to take full advantage of all the benefits that the plan offers them.
When it comes time for employees to enroll in their benefits, having someone walk them through the process is important. Our expert benefit counselors work with employees to ensure that the benefits plan that they enroll in fits their specific needs. This ensures that employees are neither under-or-over insured, and that they understand how their plan works. In the event that an employee is married or has dependents, our benefit counselors can work with them to ensure that they have full coverage for their entire family.
Customized HR Materials
Communication is the most important tool you have at your disposal during the enrollment process. Effective communication ensures that employees are fully engaged, prepared to make important benefit decisions. Our team works with brokers and employers to create customized HR communication materials that cover pre, intra, and post enrollment communication. Pre-enrollment materials prepare employees for the process of selecting benefits. Intra-enrollment materials provide employees with their benefit options, contact information for benefit counselors, information on accessing our self-service technology, and other important updates. Post-enrollment materials provide employees with both resources if they have questions about their benefits after the enrollment period, and a breakdown of the benefits that they selected.
The enrollment process is often long and tedious, but PES Benefits provides tailored solutions that make enrollment as simple as possible for you and your employees. From our expert benefit counselors, to our customized HR materials, everything we do puts your company and its employees in the best possible position to have an effective open enrollment.
