Making Benefits Personal
Our mission for inspiring employee understanding and use of benefits.
While the challenge can be overwhelming for overworked HR departments PCI is dedicated to assisting as a strategic HR resource. We’ve developed a solution that reduces the burden on HR staffs without increasing cost or causing disruption. Our business model helps employees embrace their benefits after open enrollment. We work with our clients to schedule an off-cycle “Employee Education Campaign,” which takes place during the eleven months following open enrollment.
During a 21-minute meeting each employee gains a personal understanding of a benefit or program, selected by their employer, which dramatically improves engagement. They’ll also learn about a voluntary benefit and how it can close a gap in their individual benefits picture and protect their family’s financial future.
Employees obtain their benefits during open enrollment and gain an understanding of benefit use and value during their education meeting. Beyond being cost free the biggest HR advantage is increased return on the huge investment in employee benefits. Now, one of the largest expenses, at about 30 percent of employee compensation, benefits will produce intended results. Reduced health costs, less absenteeism and fewer financial worries will increase employee commitment and productivity.
