Benefit Open Enrollment meetings happen once a year and many employers go through this process bracing themselves for (what can be) dreadful news. Usually the message is, “your health premiums are going up”! Do you customize your benefits to fit the needs of your staff? Take the time to find out what your employees really want!
It’s not too late to survey your employees before your renewal! What benefits are most important to them? Would employees rather have a rich benefit program and pay a little more each pay period and keep co-pays and prescriptions at a reasonable cost? Which benefits are employees utilizing the most? Emergency room visits? Co-pays? Specialist visits? Wellness exams? What about orthodontia coverage? Is that important? How about vision? Do you employ young adults who deal with daycare expenses?
Work with HR On-Call, LLC to get a customized and unbiased benefit survey put together for your Company. Let us define your benefit package based on your survey results and your budget. Employees change and so do their needs. Find out what your employees really want. This goes a long way in retaining employees and keeping them happy.
