WageWorks Releases Innovative Open Enrollment Kit to Assist Employers with Benefits Education
SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--WageWorks, Inc. (NYSE: WAGE), a leader in administering Consumer-Directed Benefits, announced today the release of its 2015 Open Enrollment Kit for human resources and benefits professionals. Highlighted in the kit is a Media Gallery with unique, ready-made communications employers can leverage to help employees select the right benefits for the coming plan year.
“Choosing benefits is one of the biggest purchasing decisions a consumer makes all year.”
“We think of Open Enrollment as a once-a-year opportunity for companies to grab the attention of their employees and educate them about their benefits choices, so employees and their families make the best possible decisions for the plan year ahead,” said WageWorks CMO, Britta Meyer. “Choosing benefits is one of the biggest purchasing decisions a consumer makes all year.”
Despite the critical nature of these decisions, employees often don’t understand their choices and the value their benefits provide, and they don’t approach HR and benefit administrators for clarification. WageWorks is excited to offer employers a more engaging way to show their employees how to save money with Flexible Spending Accounts, Health Savings Accounts, Health Reimbursement Arrangements, or commuter benefits, and empower them to lead happier, healthier and more productive lives.
The Open Enrollment kit features a comprehensive campaign guide and a WageWorks Media Gallery with online and offline communication options for a broad range of health and commuter benefits, including the recently updated Healthcare FSA which now includes a $500 Carryover option. Additional planning tools, including webinars, communications templates and confirmation forms are provided to help employers get a head-start on this important enrollment season.
The kit is designed to help prepare for the October 1 through December 15 season, when most employers run Open Enrollment for coverage plans that begin January 1, 2015. These resources are accessible to any employer on the WageWorks public website, www.wageworks.com.
