Benefits Communication – Customized Videos for Smartphone and PC

For years, employee benefits have been communicated through mind-numbing booklets. These booklets reduce engagement and plan effectiveness while effectively increasing cost and employee dissatisfaction. The most effective and efficient benefits plans are ones that are clearly communicated. Employees are more likely to understand and take advantage of beneficial aspects of their coverage while actively avoiding areas of minimal plan coverage. So how can employers communicate more effectively to maximize employee satisfaction and minimize excess cost?

Online benefits communication videos. Concise, accurate, easily understood messages, available 24/7 on any desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. Employees access the information they need when they’re most open to processing it.

Communicate Employee Benefits Plans 24/7 with “Smartphone” Video Clips

dental tileYears ago, as an Employee Benefits Broker, my agency grew from just a handful of clients to nearly 500 when I introduced my “benefits in a box” concept.  Each year, we provided every client with a clear vinyl envelope filled with easy to understand descriptions of all their benefits, plus every possible application, and claim form.  We even included pens in each package to help employees complete their paperwork

While this kind of packaging was unheard of back then, the real tool responsible for obtaining and keeping clients for us was a customized audio cassette tape we included in each employees packet that explained all their benefits.  As a result, family members at home or employees unable to attend the annual re-enrollment meeting could listen to the same benefit meeting as though they were actually sitting at the employee meeting.

We offered this for every client we represented.  At the time that we offered something no one else had and something that Clients desperately needed: a better method of communicating employee benefits. Fast forward to today…20 years later, cassette tapes are out yet boring communication booklets are back in style.  Every day, I see thick, benefits booklets designed to put employees to sleep.

Today, we have a solution to boring booklets.  We offer an online version of what we created years ago…we can put your employee benefit meetings into short video “clips”, consolidate them for online viewing on the most widely viewed communication tool today…the smartphone.

For just a modest monthly subscription fee, we will customize a video benefits “app”, launch it to your own online site, and maintain and monitor it for you and your client.  In fact, for Agents writing business through our sister wholesale brokerage firm, Chelten Benefits Group, this customized service is complimentary.

We have posted a sample version for you to view yourself right now.  On your smartphone, go to www.vimeo.com/channels/xyztoolcompany.
