EMPLOYEE BENEFIT COMMUNICATIONS – A PRIORITY, NOT A “NICE-TO-HAVE”

So, you’ve created a great employee benefits strategy, designed it with your people in mind, and invested a ton of time and money in rewards and protection that match their needs... but none of your employees know or value what you’re offering.

Why is that?

The key is communication.

Ask yourself this: do your employees know exactly what you’re offering them, and really appreciate it? If the answer’s anything but “Absolutely!” it’s worth taking a look at how effectively you’re communicating your benefits package to your people.

Good communication isn’t an add-on; it’s an essential part of your plan, central to realising value, and you need to build it in from the start.

Communication with people in mind

Your workforce is unique – so one-size-fits-all communications won’t work. We need to understand your people, look at your data, and create the right employee communications to wrap around your employee benefits from the very start.

This might include:

  • Communication strategy workshops
  • Employee surveys and focus groups
  • Interactive online experiences
  • Digital, printed and face-to-face materials

...in whatever combination you require, or something else entirely.
