Open enrollment will be held in the coming months at many employers across California to allow employees to choose health insurance plans and other benefits.
Open enrollment experts from the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) in Alexandria, Va., and the California State Council of SHRM (CalSHRM) are available to discuss upcoming changes and trends employees can anticipate during 2015 open enrollment.
According to SHRM’s manager of compensation and benefits, employees can expect higher health insurance premiums, deductibles and co-insurance, and in some cases exclusions for working spouse exclusions. Additionally, more employers will increase wellness benefits and continue complying with Affordable Care Act reforms.
While the focus of open enrollment often entails how it will affect employees, benefits are an important recruiting tool for California organizations. According to SHRM 2014 Employee Benefits in California
reports, one-third (33%) of surveyed organizations in California leveraged their benefits program to recruit employees. Health care (68%) and retirement savings and planning (55%) are the benefits most frequently leveraged to retain employees.
Below are a list of SHRM and SHRM-affiliated open enrollment experts who are available for interviews.
