Is your employee communication lagging behind?

Smartphones, tablets and now even smart watches: We’re the children of a digital revolution and we expect our employers to keep the pace. Supported by 24/7 easy access and unique targeting tools, mobile devices have become the most effective way to tap into what employees want and to engage with them overall. Mobile experience strategies are a good way to break through the noise and deliver relevance– wherever, however, and whenever your employee logs in. However, what exactly is the point of being able to communicate with your employees round-the-clock? The answer is simple: to build effective engagement which resonates and which creates greater emotional ties between your organisation and your employees. A recent IBM and Watson Marketing report suggests that the mobile experience becomes infinitely more important than any device. To really reach out to your audience in their digital space – a mobile strategy now also requires an effective engagement strategy. By integrating your technologies, and communicating through personal platforms, you’ll cater to the modern employee and keep pace with the new digital landscape. At Benify, we’ll help you be more effective in communicating with your employees. By downloading our app, which mirrors your portal, your employees will be able to access their personal benefits at any time or any place.

The Role of a Reward in Employer Branding

Most organizations agree that attracting the right talent is a challenge in today's competitive labor market. To meet this challenge, companies must clearly communicate and visualize a reward plan to attract, retain and motivate key talent. This total reward strategy should integrate key components including total compensation, benefits, work-life balance, training, career and personal growth opportunities. The problem up until now was that, when asked about their total remuneration package, as few as 20% of all employees were able to communicate their full remunerative package. Most neglected to include the various other important provisions and contributions which our clients typically provide for them.

Empower Your HR Management Strategies

Strategic HRM aims to align the practice of managing employees with the long term goals of the organization. According to SHRM, The Society of Human Resource Management, Strategic HRM "deals with the macro-concerns of the organization regarding structure, quality, culture, values, commitment, matching resources to future needs, and other longer term people issues. It gives direction on how to build the foundation for strategic advantage by creating: an effective organizational structure and design; culture; employee value proposition; systems thinking; an appropriate communication strategy; and preparations for a changing landscape, which includes downturns and mergers & acquisitions." Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are additional areas to manage.

Bring People-Centric Strategies To Life With HR Technology

It is said that there are three types of companies out there: those who put their shareholders first, those who put their customers first, and those who put their employees first. Whereas we do not believe that any company’s personality can be so easily summarized, we do agree that companies should focus on people. Specifically: that companies should take their employees as seriously as their customers and shareholders and think in terms of how to manage, nurture, and inspire them in an economically sustainable way.

The Future of Work: Both Digital and Personal

Some thought leaders say that through technology, employees will be working less, working differently, and even working anywhere they want. The conversation in HR circles extends this idea to predict that technology will even "disrupt" HR's role in any given company, and traditional methods used to interact with employees will become unfashionable, outdated, and ultimately, extinct.

Simplified Insurance Enrollment For Less Stress, More Engagement

In many parts of the world, it is open enrollment time. That’s when an employee is offered group insurances by HR and can select coverages for him or herself plus family members. This can mean deciding to continue with certain insurances or trying new programs for added protection. During open enrollment season- and even “any-time” enrollment that occurs during recruitment or otherwise,  an employee must determine if the coverage is needed and for whom. He or she must weigh the cost and understand whether electing the insurance decreases overall taxable income— or if it is “an extra” paid out of pocket on a voluntary basis.
