In the complicated world of benefits, communication plays a vital role between employers and employees in offering a robust benefits package that truly works. Many employees do not fully understand the extent of their benefits or how to use them, but by providing these employees with access to educational materials that explain the complex world of health insurance, employers can simplify the process.
Technology driven solutions like employee resource portals are available to help workers better grasp benefits knowledge and stay up to date on the latest benefits news. These platforms include:
- Notifications about important benefits deadlines
- Resources explaining the difference between health plan options, medical savings accounts, and retirement information
- Comprehensive plan information for health insurance companies or network providers
- A direct line of communication with the HR Department
