NEW YORK, Aug. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- HSA administrators, Clarity Benefit Solutions, emphasizes the importance of employee education and understanding during open enrollment.

Many employees have a negative view regarding open enrollment, citing it as a confusing, overwhelming period. Already busy employees now must take the time to make decisions regarding their benefits—trying to balance what they need with what they can afford. Therefore, they require a thorough education of all options available to them, so they can make informed decisions.

Present employees benefit information in simple language, using a variety of mediums. Booklets, posters, emails, internet/intranet, portal, website, and social media allow employees to choose how they want to learn about benefits. Meetings are also important, as some employees want to personally receive the information. Outline plan options, what is covered under each plan, and the exact steps that need to be taken during the open enrollment process. Make sure they have a mix of mandatory and voluntary benefits to choose from. It is vital to offer customized packages that encompass medical, dental, and vision plans from well-established carriers.

This benefits information should be easy for employees to access. It should be on a user-friendly website, so they can access it at their convenience. The content should be engaging and informative. An online benefits platform will streamline employee benefits administration and automates the entire HR, benefits, and payroll process. Automated communication and decision support tools will keep the process running smoothly and offer seamless connection with insurance carriers, payroll company, and other third-party vendors. Plus, online benefits providers offer service, support, and industry insights.

Offer support throughout the open enrollment period. It is a time to work closely together to make sure everyone is on the same page, and emphasize that benefits are crucial to a company because they demonstrate employee investment. Extend assistance throughout the year. Employees need to be kept up to date on changes and new offerings. Better educated employees make more informed decisions.
