Employee Communication Solutions For Employers And Their Benefit Advisors

Why Matters is exclusively for employers and benefit advisory agencies who are seeking to increase the return employers receive from every dollar invested in employee benefits.

A unique element of Why Matters is the high degree of relevancy and alignment it creates by going beyond the traditional, tactical approach of explaining what the benefit is and how it can be best utilized. That’s because we take a much more strategic approach that starts with clearly communicating why the benefits offered are important to the employer and employee alike.

With our help, employers and their benefits advisory firm integrate highly-effective employee communication into the benefit programs they design and deliver. In doing so, they enable both the employer and the employees to get what they want and need out of the benefit program.

Engagement in Why Matters empowers employers to:

  • Increase the value employers receive from the benefit programs they deliver
  • Protect and enhance the company’s reputation as an employer
  • Retain and attract high quality employees

 

Engagement in Why Matters empowers benefit advisory agencies to:

  • Increase the value the employers you serve receive from their benefit programs
  • Protect and enhance your agency’s reputation
  • Nurture long-term relationships as together your businesses grow

Enrollment Postcard and Posters

Placing posters around your offices is a great way to remind your employees of annual enrollment and make sure they know when it is.

A few weeks before the open enrollment period, your employees and their dependents will receive a postcard at their home, announcing the dates and giving them time to review their benefit needs prior to your meetings.

THEPOCKETPALThe original PocketPal was created 9 years ago, before the iPhone, and before Google knew that an Android wasn't from another planet!

It is a "point of care" tool that provides benefit highlights, group policy numbers, relevant websites, phone numbers and tracking tools to help employees with benefit questions when they need the information most—at the point-of-care.

The NEW POCKETPAL was developed for a new generation of benefit consumers. Our new app is the first of  its kind in our industry and will give employees and dependents access to benefit information and educational materials from any iPhone or Android device.

Why_THE_POCKETPAL

Engage and educate your employees on their role in keeping healthcare costs down, while elevating your employees' perceived value of your benefit programs.
