Open enrollment planning season is upon us, and as HR teams across the country put the finishing touches on their benefits plans, they are turning their attention to the next big hurdle: making a communication plan that employees will actually pay attention to.

If this endeavor feels like taking a stab in the dark -- or worse, if your communication plan is an afterthought -- worry no more. There is plenty of research into employees’ benefits communication preferences that can help you take the guesswork out of planning and focus on what really matters – getting the word out about your benefits to your employees.

  • Seven survey-based insights into your employees’ benefits communication preferences, gaps in their benefits knowledge, and more
  • Seven communication tips and tactics you can use to support those insights
  • Strategies for tailoring your benefits messages to key employee groups at your company
