Open enrollment tips—Video and podcast!

Open Enrollment IS Different This Year

We are right in the middle of open enrollment season and companies across the country are finalizing plan designs, signing off on communication materials and prepping employees to choose their benefits for 2010.

This year is feeling different for us and our clients. From the economy, to health care reform, to social media—lots of factors are influencing the employee mindset.

But, there are ways to understand these factors and make enrollment this year a huge success—even if you’re communicating cut-backs or benefits changes.

You can find out our tips for success in the video here (that is from my presentation on September 17 for the Northern California HR Association and the Northern California Employee Benefits Council).

You can also listen to this Talking Points Podcast with PlanSponsor.

Or, go the old fashioned way and read about them on Benefits Buzz or SHRM’s Website.

I’ll be presenting on the same topic on October 13 for the San Diego Employee Benefits Council.

Please, let us know how these tips work for you or if you have others to share!
