San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 10, 2010
Jennifer Benz, founder and chief strategist of Benz Communications, will present “Raising the Bar: Inspiring Action Through Engaging Communication” at MetLife’s 6th National Benefits Symposium, April 11-12, 2010, at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington DC. Benz Communications is a HR communications strategy boutique.
In “Raising the Bar: Inspiring Action Through Engaging Communication”, which Jen will present on April 12th at 2:30pm EDT, Jen details:
- the link between employees’ understanding of their benefits, and how benefits are used and managed;
- the relationship between satisfaction with benefits and job satisfaction, and company ROI;
- the tremendous need for company guidance delivered in a meaningful fashion;
- how new technologies are influencing the delivery and use of information, and
- how companies can harness new technologies to more effectively communicate with and engage employees.
“I am honored to have been invited to address the changing face of employee benefits communications at this prestigious event,” stated Jen. “As our work with large employers across the country attests, companies that understand the impact of new technologies on employee engagement and incorporate them into their benefits communication programs have much higher rates of employee participation in their benefits programs, increased employee job satisfaction, and a significantly higher return on their benefits investment,” she continued. “Too often companies are overwhelmed by new technology, like social media. I’m delighted to be to be able to share the often simple ways companies can use new technology to improve the ROI on their investment in benefits, especially in times of so much change,” Jen concluded.
Speakers at MetLife’s 6th National Benefits Symposium include Senator Tom Daschle; Phyllis Borzi, Assistant Secretary of the Labor Department’s Employee Benefits Security Administration; Mark Iwry, Senior Advisor to the Secretary and Deputy Assistant Secretary for Retirement and Health Policy; James Klein, President of the American Benefits Council, and David Wessel, Executive Editor of Economics at The Wall Street Journal.
