Benefits Counseling and Education
You want to offer your employees the best benefits package you can, and so do we.
We don’t just offer benefits – because no two businesses are alike. We can help you understand what type of benefits may work best for your company, and help your employees better understand the benefits you make available to them. It’s a proven fact that the more employees understand their benefits, the more they appreciate them.
Do your employees understand and appreciate all you do?
Even though employers are offering more benefits than ever, their employees don’t understand those benefits and are unable to appreciate the value of their benefits package.
That’s the bad news, according to the Society for Human Resource Management 2008 Employee Benefits Survey sponsored by Colonial Life.
The good news? Colonial Life’s benefits education sharpens employees’ understanding and appreciation of the value of their employer-provided benefits.
As counselors for your employees’ benefits needs, we come to your worksite and spend one-to-one time with each employee to provide simple, straightforward advice about the benefits they have — and those they need to fit their individual lifestyles and budgets.
With our customized benefits counseling, Colonial Life helps your clients' employees understand and appreciate all of their options – from core benefits to voluntary. Our benefits counseling also helps employees appreciate the benefits their employer provides, which can increase job satisfaction and retention.
How does our benefits counseling help you, the broker? It gives you a competitive edge, helping you to distinguish yourself to both new and existing clients and to insulate yourself from competitors. In a 2007 survey by Watson Wyatt Worldwide, the majority of employers said that employee communications is their top challenge.
When our professional benefit counselors step in as your partner with an enrollment, the real benefit is a stronger relationship with your clients because of happier, long-term employees and less hassle in managing benefits.
