Employers Need to Optimize Enrollment Support

Effective communication and optimal enrollment processes are critical for employees to fully understand their benefits options. This is especially important for millennials as younger employees feel the least confident in their benefits decisions.  While millennials are the most tech-savvy generation, the majority of them value one-on-one consultations with a benefits expert.

Employers are starting to diversify their decision-support approach with millennials and not just rely on online support tools to provide the individualized support they seek. One-on-one
consultations, in-person meetings, and workshops are just some of the ways for employers reach younger workers.

Employers have a unique role in helping employees from all generations navigate their choices. This will help businesses maintain strong loyalty among employees and continue to attract
top talent in 2017 and beyond.

InfinityHR is proud to announce a 100% on-time filing rate for client ACA e-filings

ACA

InfinityHR is proud to announce a 100 percent on-time filing rate for client’s Affordable Care Act (ACA) e-filings. This includes a 31 percent increase in the number of EINs filing from tax year 2015 to tax year 2016. InfinityHR is poised to continue to help our customers stay compliant with our comprehensive ACA module for tax year 2017 now that ACA seems to be here to stay.

Although the Republican controlled White House, House of Representatives and Senate have been working to repeal or cripple the ACA, they have yet to be successful. On March 24, 2017, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) said, “Obamacare is the law of the land. It will remain the law of the land until it is replaced. We will be living with Obamacare for the foreseeable future.” This was after the Republicans failed to get enough support for the American Health Care Act (AHCA), deciding to withdraw it from the floor prior to a vote.

What does all of this mean for employers? Although many expected there to be some sort of change to employer responsibilities as it relates to employee benefits, the reporting and/or the fines associated with the ACA, for now, stand.

InfinityHR is dedicated to helping companies stay compliant with our comprehensive ACA reporting module. The ACA module features include:

  • Alerts
  • Ability to offer employees coverage at the click of a button
  • FTE/ALE forecasting
  • Personalized ACA profiles
  • E-Filing
  • Easy access for employees
  • Multiple EIN reporting
  • 1094/1095 B/C generation

Employees Need Better Benefits Education

OE_Blog_Image

 

Attracting top talent with competitive benefits will always be a top priority for employers. With millennials overtaking Generation X as the largest generation in the U.S. workforce, employers will have to become more creative and versatile. It will be important to customize packages that meet non-traditional needs and leverage new technology.

One important trend to consider in this new environment is providing employees better benefits education.

The best benefits package can be rendered meaningless if employees don’t understand or take advantage of their options. There’s a real need for education, especially among younger workers.

  • 52 percent of millennials understood life insurance
  • 38 percent understood long-term disability insurance and
  • Only 7 percent  had a full understanding of basic insurance concepts, such as premiums, deductibles, and coinsurance

For employers, this is a significant opportunity to evolve into a more consultative role and provide meaningful education and training for employees. This will not only maximize the value of benefits, but also generate loyalty among employees.

Top Benefits Trends for 2017: Voluntary Benefits

Insurance_Types

Attracting top talent with competitive benefits will always be a top priority for employers. In the past, an appealing package may have included just retirement and health insurance. Today, with millennials overtaking Generation X as the largest generation in the U.S. workforce, employers will have to become more creative and versatile. It will be important to customize packages that meet non-traditional needs and leverage new technology.

One important trend to consider in this new environment is offering voluntary benefits.

An Aflac Workforces Report found that 88 percent of employees see voluntary benefits as part of a comprehensive benefits package. Employees often pay for them through payroll deferral making them an attractive low-cost option for employers. Traditional examples include life insurance, vision, dental, disability, and accident insurance. These days, voluntary benefits are stepping outside of the box.

For example, pet insurance is one of the fastest growing voluntary benefits. Some employers are addressing generational differences by offering other benefits, such as financial planning and career development,in addition to student-debt programs. The availability of voluntary benefits can have a profound impact on employees and employers alike. The Aflac study found that employees with voluntary benefits were 19 percent more likely to be satisfied with their job and 14 percent less likely to look for another one. Employees with voluntary benefits also felt more confident about their financial future, a chief concern for millennials. In the end, having a menu of voluntary benefits can provide a low-cost boost to employee morale.
