How to Effectively Listen to Your Workforce During Open Enrollment

As a business owner or CEO, it’s important to listen to your workforce during Open Enrollment. This is the time of year when employees can choose which benefits they want for their family and themselves. They may be looking for ways to save money on premiums. Others may need more comprehensive coverage than what you offer currently.

During this time of year, it is important to make sure that your employees are happy with the plans they’re choosing. If an employee is unhappy or unsatisfied with their benefits during Open Enrollment, they may decide to look for an employer who offers the healthcare benefits they desire.

Conduct an Employee Feedback Survey

A great way for you to listen and respond to your workforce’s needs during Open Enrollment is through employee feedback surveys. You can gather valuable information from these surveys that you may not have otherwise known about your employees’ needs and desires for their healthcare benefits.

Offer Voluntary Benefits During Open Enrollment

Another way to listen to your workforce during Open Enrollment is by offering voluntary benefits. You can open up the opportunity for employees who are currently enrolled in their healthcare plan, or any other benefit you offer at your business, to add additional voluntary benefits.

This could be anything from dental coverage and vision care, to short-term disability insurance. You give employees the control to choose what is best for them and their families.

Schedule Education Sessions on Benefits

During open enrollment, you can also host an education session about benefits at your business. Many people are overwhelmed during this time of year. They aren’t sure which plans are right for them or how much they’ll cost.

By hosting an education session about benefits during Open Enrollment, you’re allowing your employees to ask questions and learn more information before they make a decision that may affect them for months or even years down the road!

Provide a Benefits Comparison Chart for Open Enrollment

There are many ways for you to make your employees happy with the benefits they’re choosing during Open Enrollment. One of the most effective ways is by providing them with a comparison chart that lists all of their options in an easy-to-read format.

Prioritize Follow Up After Open Enrollment

At the end of Open Enrollment, it’s important to follow up with every employee who chose new plans or elected to keep what they currently have during this time period.

Call them by phone, send them a letter, or schedule an in-person meeting. Make sure to follow up with each one of your employees who participated during Open Enrollment so you can get their feedback!
