SAN MATEO, CA (Thursday, September 12, 2013)
WageWorks, Inc. (NYSE: WAGE) a leading provider of Consumer-Directed Benefits (CDBs), such as pre-tax accounts for health, commuter and other employee benefits, is today announcing the release of their 2013 digital Open Enrollment kit. The kit is designed to help employers prepare for the October 1 through December 15 season, when employers run Open Enrollment for coverage plans beginning on January 1, 2014.
With the Affordable Care Act going into effect, the launch of new health exchanges, and the constantly rising cost of health care, this year’s Open Enrollment will bring up even more critical questions. HR professionals are challenged to find effective ways to excite employees and engage them in the process of learning how to choose the right benefits for them and their families.
“The process of selecting benefits is intimidating to employees,” says Britta Meyer, Chief Marketing Officer at WageWorks. “It is important to offer compelling benefits, but also to explain them and incorporate them into the employer brand to distinguish yourself as an employer, and to help educate, engage and enroll employees. Our new kits will go a long way in making sure that everyone benefits.”
Our digital Open Enrollment kits include a WageWorks Media Gallery with online and offline communication options for a broad range of health and commuter benefits. Additional planning tools, including webinars, communications templates, survey samples, and a guide with tips and best practices are provided to help employers get a head-start on an important enrollment season.
