Digital Tactics Are Effective for Employee Benefits Communications
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, roughly one-third (32%) of total employee compensation costs are related to employee benefits. While 63% of employees say healthcare benefits are very important to their job satisfaction, only 31% say they’re satisfied with their benefits. This underscores the need for improved communications, which, according to the SHRM 2017 Strategic Benefits Survey, is the biggest benefits challenge for most employers.
Additionally, studies like The Value of Employer-Benefits Offerings by AHIP show perception of company benefits has a direct impact on employee satisfaction and retention. In that study, 56% of US adults with employer-sponsored health benefits said that whether or not they like their health coverage is a key factor in deciding to stay at their current job.
