How Ocean Spray embraced its evolution to online communications.
These days, everybody wants to go “green,” so when it comes to employee communications, companies—ever mindful of wasting paper (and the perception that invites)—think that digital is the thing to do; it’s environmentally friendly, and it can often be (or at least seem) less expensive.
You already understand the importance of communicating all the details of the benefits programs you offer to employees, including health insurance and well-being programs, as well as new hire orientation and total compensation. Employees that feel in the know are happier employees that are more likely to stay!
You know your company spends a lot of money on benefits. The cost of insurance alone is about $17,000 per employee, on average. And that doesn’t count well-being programs and other benefits like FSAs and HSAs, total compensation, and retirement accounts.
You have a killer benefits package for your employees: health insurance, well-being and wellness programs, and awesome total compensation packages, amazing training and development… now what?
Figuring out how to get your employees excited about a wellness campaign can feel like a daunting task. However, with the right communication support and presentation, you will be able to spark interest and reach your goals.
There’s no better time to launch a well-being campaign than after annual enrollment to reinforce many of the health and financial wellness messages introduced during enrollment.
"Our employees just don’t understand the value of their benefits," this is a common complaint from employers and those tagged with managing benefits. This is scary since benefits make up approximately 30% - 40% of an average employee’s compensation.
There are many great ways to promote your benefits program and increase employee engagement. But, total compensation, or total reward statements may be at the top of our list when it comes to educating employees about their compensation above and beyond their base salary.
Text messaging has become one of the most popular means of communication today. In fact, the average consumer sends as many as 72 texts per day. (Source: Pew Research Center)
