Building A Modern Benefits Communication Strategy 

New research for a more effective open enrollment

Webinar (September 30, 2021)

Two new surveys highlight a crucial gap in benefits education and communication: While 75% of employers expressed confidence in their benefits communication strategy, more than half of employees reported struggling with their benefit elections in the past year.

In this HRDA webinar recording, Building A Modern Benefits Communication Strategy, two employee benefits experts dive into new research and common benefits education challenges. Robin Schooling, Managing Partner & Principal of the Peridus Group, and Kaleb Unverfehrt, Assistant Vice President of Enrollment Strategy at Unum, also provide tips about how busy HR teams can leverage technology, third-party expertise and existing resources to transform a traditional one-way communication strategy into a robust omni-channel digital operation. Learn how to take your benefits communication beyond open enrollment and meet your employees where they are.
