If you’re struggling to get your easily bored, non-benefit-nerd employees to engage with your benefits communications, try being a little funnier. Done right, humor can pleasantly surprise your employees, put them into the right mood to make better decisions, and motivate them to change their behavior for the better. Done wrong, it can make your employees groan, roll their eyes and feel misunderstood.

In this program, benefits communication expert David Daskal will share nine tips you can use today to build (or build on) a year-round benefits communication strategy that incorporates work-appropriate humor to get the results you want. Specifically, you’ll learn:
  • What behavioral science research has to say about humor and learning
  • How to craft an engaging year-round benefits communication strategy
  • How to use humor in flyers, mailers, e-mails, live presentations and webinars
  • How to incorporate it in a way that doesn’t irritate people or distract from your message—even if being funny isn’t really “your thing"
