It is a key tool used to deliver sensitive news about benefits cuts in a tough economy, drive enrollment in cost-savings initiatives such as high deductible health plans or ensure that new hires make a successful transition.
Los Altos, CA (PRWEB) August 31, 2009 -
ThriveOn, Inc. announced two new modules for their online Benefits Learning Center solution, streamlining Open Enrollment communications and New Hire Training.
ThriveOn automates these key yet resource-intensive business processes to free up HR staff, reduce costs and allow employers to realize the full value of their benefits investments.
Each module provides a central online destination to access multimedia benefits education. The Open Enrollment module details benefits changes for the upcoming plan year, offers customized checklists of items to be completed and links to enrollment resources. The New Hire Training module educates new employees about their total compensation package, benefits enrollment procedures and orientation-related topics. Both provide a cost-effective option for using rich, engaging multimedia to educate and communicate with employees on HR topics.
Companies devote significant resources to helping employees understand their total compensation packages – this includes the HR staff time and dollars required to maintain thick benefits handbooks, create brochures and deliver live workshops and orientations. Benefits support calls can also overwhelm an organization around the time of Open Enrollment. Despite this effort and investment, only about 1 out of 5 employers believes that their employees have a good understanding of their benefits.
Considering current trends, it is not surprising why traditional approaches to benefits communications have produced such disappointing results. Employees have shrinking attention spans and are conditioned by new Web technologies to expect rich, engaging experiences online. Further, Open Enrollment and New Hire Orientation workshops are failing to address increasingly distributed workforces and family decision-makers.
“Whether an employee is new or reviewing their elections during open enrollment, effective benefits education is critical,” said Keith Kitani, chief executive officer. “It is a key tool used to deliver sensitive news about benefits cuts in a tough economy, drive enrollment in cost-savings initiatives such as high deductible health plans or ensure that new hires make a successful transition.”
ThriveOn’s Open Enrollment and New Hire Training modules provide brief, engaging multimedia benefits education to employees and their families. Incorporating the latest social media trends, these modules also offer polls, ratings and other features to promote shared learning.
