Good Things Come in Small Packages
Imagine being able to communicate all the important benefits you provide to your employees in a concise, effective and easy-to-read format. Sounds great, right? At Assurance, we’re big believers that providing your employees with a clear snapshot of all benefit information will help them thoroughly understand what’s available, make more informed choices and feel a greater appreciation for the their benefits package as a whole. After all, knowing is half the battle!
Wondering how to get started? It’s really quite simple. Put pen to paper and create a Summary of Benefits with all the facts on your benefit offerings, which may include:
- Major Medical Coverage
- Dental Insurance
- Vision Insurance
- Short-Term Disability
- Long-Term Disability
- Company Specific Benefits
- 401(k) Plan
- Wellness Initiatives
- Discount Programs
- Company Perks
Remember to include all plan specifics including notable contacts, websites, benefit highlights, effective dates and more. And don’t forget, adding carrier-specific information to your summary is essential as they often provide a host of discounts and value-added services at no cost for simply being an enrolled member. Why not take advantage of those “free” perks?
Finally, pull all the information together with your company logo, your colors and your contact information. This piece should scream YOU and capitalize on all the benefits you’re offering your employees, regardless of whether they’re enrolled in your health insurance benefits or not. Once the document has been polished and perfected, share it with your employees. A great Summary of Benefits also makes an excellent resource for new hires and a recruiting tool for top talent.
