Employee Benefits in the news
Benefit professionals spend all year preparing for open enrollment, but the end of open enrollment doesn’t mean our work is complete. In addition to all the work we still have to do (setting up file feeds, ensuring carriers and vendors have the correct elections, etc.), there are a number of steps we can take now with our plans to make sure our “houses” are in order and avoid potential headaches later.
Now it is time for the big event! Open enrollment is starting and it is time to put all your meticulous planning into practice. At this stage, your communications should be focusing on accomplishing a singular goal: informing employees about the benefits options they have available and getting them to enroll.
Nearly one-third of eligible employees are signing up for voluntary benefits during enrollment periods, which is a slight uptick from previous years. According to a study conducted by Eastbridge Consulting Group, the overall average participation rate increased from 21% in 2014 to 28% in 2017.
