Speed to Value: Keeping Communications Relevant and Data Safe

Here’s a universal HR truth: In order to offer a competitive and comprehensive benefits experience to your employees, you need to partner with vendors. Lots of them. These vendors have the potential to bring great value to your employees’ lives—but only when they’re being used, which is why we emphasize the importance of relevant communications […]

Cracking the Code on Managing Healthcare + Benefits Costs

In my previous post about the rising costs in healthcare and benefits, I asked you to imagine a pie chart that shows your company’s total expenditures, and how much of that chart was taken up by healthcare and benefits spending. Chances are, that slice of the pie has been getting larger over the past couple […]

The Key to Unifying Benefits Experiences

One of the ultimate goals for benefits leaders is to deliver better experiences—from the way people access their benefits, to how they engage with each vendor, to the value they ultimately get out of it. But a common obstacle is that these experiences are often fragmented. This leaves employees feeling siloed and minimizes their connection […]

Know What You’re Solving For: The Siloed Benefits Experience

Ask any benefits leader what they want to give their employees, and you’ll probably hear some version of this: an interconnected benefits experience. And why not?

Add Value by Giving a Holistic View: The 360 Approach

Some of them have help lines with customer-service representatives (CSRs) to help your employees get the most out of their benefits. Whether it’s an advocate at an EAP, a nurse […]

Earlier this year, I wrote about why our commitment to the closed loop is so vital, and how it leads to real outcomes. Now, I’d like to examine the loop a little closer. Even incremental changes can cause a major impact on the bottom line—both for the business investment and in people’s lives. Little reminders […]

Personalizing Mass Outreach Down to Each Person

Imagine you have an important piece of news you want to deliver to an employee, or a specific group of employees—anything from announcing a local onsite event, to sharing a new benefit, to recognizing a work anniversary. How would you get that message out? A meeting? Maybe, if you could get everyone in the same […]

Are Your Member Profiles Complete?

As forward-thinking employers, we all strive for our employees to feel supported at work and able to accomplish what they want in life. So what types of things help us achieve that? What sets us up for success in that realm? It’s a whole multitude of factors, like competitive salaries, positive office culture, and, of […]

Big Data + Little Nudges = Love

Sometimes a nudge is just a nudge. And sometimes, a nudge becomes a revolution. Nudge theory (behavioral economists and social psychologists have many labels for this concept) entered the public conversation more than a decade ago. Some think the landmark book that became the multimedia phenomenon known as Freakonomics had something to do with it, […]
