Let’s face it, health care benefits can be confusing for employees. What’s my deductible? Should I use my health savings account (HSA) or flexible spending account (FSA) for this expense? Do I have a telemedicine program? The questions go on.

Some employees may even be unaware of their benefits, including the company wellness program that offers medical premium discounts, the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) that provides emotional support, or education assistance that reimburses tuition for courses taken to advance their career or earn a degree.

This is where benefits communications come to the rescue.

Providing clear and engaging benefits information to your employees sets them – and your company – up for success. Employees who know how to use their benefits are better able to take care of their health and reach out for support when they need it. It’s a win-win for everyone. After all, employees who are healthy physically, emotionally and financially are more likely to be strivers and producers.
