You might think the insurance policies you carry on your employees or that you have specifically for your company are solely financial tools, items with little effect on your employees and morale. However, your insurance plan is one of the strongest bridges you have with your team. It's one of the few connections you have linking you to them even when they are away from work.
Why not use this connection to promote and strengthen your company culture? After all, the policies are necessary expenses, and if you can get more impact out of them, their value increases.
Here are some simple, low-cost ways to keep employees connected with your insurance plan.
Link Insurance Companies Information Sites To Your Site
Insurance companies have a variety of pages on their sites explicitly written for the end user. These pages cover topics like:
Excellent Company Culture Requires Employee Engagement
As you develop your benefits package or improve it with each passing year, solicit input from your employees. Their input is important because they are the end users of the insurance packages, and you'll want to know what they are using and appreciate. It will also let you know if there are any benefits they would like to add.
Encouraging employee engagement is the best way to improve your culture. Employees who know their input is valued will have a stronger connection with their employer.
Create A Chance For Your Employees To Meet With The Employees
Insurance questions can get pretty nuanced, everybody has different situations and many of them may not be covered by the informational handouts or web pages. See if you can arrange for a representative of the company to meet with employees and provide specific answers for people's questions.
Also, if you are beginning a new insurance program, ask if your broker can attend to help with the correct information and enrollment process. Little details like this always leave staff feeling more confident with the enrollment process.
Remember, the whole point of promoting interaction with your insurance company is to enhance your company culture. You want your culture to place a heavy emphasis on taking care of your employees. Employees who are happy and secure in their benefits package are more engaged and have higher productivity.
