Offering benefit packages

Offering competitive benefits is the perfect way to stand out as an employer, however to have a true edge in the current digital age it’s important to ensure your benefits are easily accessible. The easier your benefits are to access, the more satisfied your employees will be with their vision care in Tulsa and beyond, and the more likely they are to enroll.

Newsletters, blogs, and online videos can be great tools for understanding benefits. Online benefits and platforms can help track costs and find first-rate plans for your staff.

Streamlining with mobile tools for your staff

Employee benefits software can help streamline HR operations. Through benefits software, employees have access to manage their benefits.

Mobile tools are an easy way for employees to access their plans. You can include a benefits app for your employee benefits software or apps from your insurance providers.

Leverage data to drive results

Analytics can help track and control costs and give you insight into important metrics like employee satisfaction.

Gathering essential data can result in new ways for your company to solve problems and grow. Valuable data and analytics can also result in a trusting and positive work environment.

Technology and data entry are now necessary skills in the workforce, and investing in proper training for your staff is essential.

Digital content

Digital tools allow your staff to connect anytime, resulting in a flexible work-life balance. When deciding on digital tools and content, there are two main elements to include: educational information to help employees make decisions and 24/7 connection access.

Having access to a mobile connection anywhere and anytime improves overall productivity. So, the days of employees reviewing their benefits on the company website are a thing of the past. Most employees prefer being able to review their plans on their own devices.

Choosing a plan with a mobile website is helpful, but it is also important to have an employee benefits app. Connecting with your employees for benefit updates and information is not always “one size fits all.” Vision Care Direct recommends you keep these generation preferences in mind:

  • Gen Z – prefer face to face, even if just virtual
  • Millennials – prefer regular mail or email
  • Gen X – prefer email
  • Baby Boomers – prefer phone calls or email

Employees with unanswered questions about their plan may be reluctant to schedule a doctor’s appointment. Such issues could be mitigated if they could quickly access their information.

HR tech trends

Some technology tools to help you get the most out of the benefits packages you offer are:

  • Hybrid work tech growth: employees will be seen where to get their work done, not a place. HR leaders will steer away from the idea that employees are most productive when in the office.
  • Artificial intelligence fueled by people data will move beyond the HR office itself. AI will make it easier for supervisors to see productivity and performance.
  • Diversity efforts will make huge strides. HR leaders will start seeking neurodiverse candidates.
  • With an increased focus on having a more diverse team, it’s important that new employees feel welcome from the start.
  • Cybersecurity training: with an influx of cyber attacks, HR will need to ensure that employees are updated on cybersecurity.

Achieving your HR goals

Having access to simple platforms and easy-to-understand information can streamline the process by saving time and cutting out endless emails.

From streamlining operations to providing a better employee experience, technology tools can help you achieve your HR goals.
