SHRM’s 2015 Strategic Benefits Survey collected data on how organizations assess and communicate their benefits programs to their employees.
This research found that more than one-quarter of HR professionals indicated that their organizations’ main strategic focus for their employee benefits packages was controlling health care costs (29%) or ensuring that employees understand the value of their benefits package (28%); 17% indicated retaining employees was their main strategic focus.
About two-thirds (66%) of HR professionals indicated their organizations’ employees were “somewhat knowledgeable” about the employer-sponsored benefits available to them; 16% reported employees were “very knowledgeable,” a statistically significant increase from 2014 (9%). However, one-half (50%) of respondents indicated their organizations did not use any methods to determine how well employees understood the employer-sponsored benefits available to them.
