2015 Strategic Benefits―Assessment and Communication of Benefits

Oct 15, 2015

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.
