Things to do with Your  Benefits Before Year End

Help your employees step into the new year on the right foot. Here are some tips to boost your benefits before the end of the year.

Holiday Spending Tips

The end of the year likely means lots of holiday spending. Unfortunately, many Americans go into debt to make sure the holidays are special.

If you offer financial wellness, connect with your provider. See if you can send out educational resources to employees to help them not overspend or go into credit card debt.

Additionally, try to find helpful articles or resources to share with employees via email before they leave for the holidays.

Benefits Review

Most businesses wrapped up their open enrollment process in the last few weeks.

Before the end of the year, send out a review to employees. Remind them of what benefits they currently have access to. Outline steps they need to take to better utilize them.

For instance, if you have a new health wellness program in place, outline the steps employees need to take to make sure they’re able to get reimbursed for things like gym memberships or sign up for contests.

End of the Year Survey

Finally, send out an anonymous employees wellness survey at the end of the year. Ask employees how they feel about their year at your organization and what they’d like to see in the future.

You can use employee surveys not only to keep your benefits offerings running smoothly, but also to see how employees feel about the organization overall.

Even though there are just a few weeks left in the year, it’s not too late to improve your benefits programs and finish the year on a high note.

Send out reminders to employees about their financial wellness and keep them on track with your newest benefits offerings! And as you prepare for next year, learn how to create a better budget for wellness.
