Each year business owners and managers look for ways to make open enrollment easier. Having each employee go through this process can be extremely time consuming, and it destroys their productivity while working on it. Unfortunately, the fact is that employers have to take the time to inform their employees about all the changes to the benefits package from the previous year so that everyone chooses the options that are best for them.
For most employers, this means one of two things. The first option is to bring everyone together in a conference room and go over all the different options that they will see during the open enrollment process. This can be difficult to schedule and leaves the company without anyone actually doing work. The other option is to have individual managers meet with each employee to go over all the options. This too is very unproductive, and results in the same type of speech being given dozens, or even hundreds of times. Fortunately, there is a better way.
Make Open Enrollment Easier with Custom Videos
Here at Zupnick and Associates, we can work with you to create custom videos that provide employees with all the information they need to properly enroll in their benefits. This can be done for an annual open enrollment event, or anytime there are major changes to the benefits being made. Having this type of tailor-made video provides your company with lots of advantages, including:
Employees Watch on Their Schedule – Each employee can be given access to the videos so they can watch them on their schedule. This means employees will be able to get their work done and learn about their new benefits during downtime.
Can be Watched Multiple Times – If an employee doesn’t understand something, or wants to review something before making a decision, they can just re-watch the video again to refresh their minds. This doesn’t require a manager or other individual to spend time going over the information multiple times.
Easier to Coordinate – You won’t have to coordinate one large meeting, or even multiple smaller meetings, to ensure everyone is given the information they need concerning benefits enrollment. Simply provide each employee with the link to the videos and they will be all set.
Contains All Essential Information – Custom videos allow you to include all essential information so that nothing is left out. This can help to ensure your employees are making the best decisions for their situation and can also help to reduce the number of questions that they have.
Employees Love the Convenient Videos
In addition to providing employers with many great benefits, having custom made benefits videos is also something that employees appreciate. No employee wants to attend a lengthy meeting where they have to listen to a bunch of information that doesn’t necessarily apply to them. To make it worse, they would have to sit around and listen to other people ask questions that they don’t have.
By watching a video about the benefits that they are being offered, they can control the process. If they are not interested in a particular type of benefit, they can skip over that section of the video. When something comes up that they aren’t sure about, they can re-watch that section to make sure they understand it properly. By putting the control into the hands of the employees, they are much more likely to actually pay attention and get the information they need. This helps to improve employee satisfaction since they will really understand the open enrollment process.
