Explore the Customer Experience

When your employees reach out to your benefits provider for help, they deserve a positive customer experience.

No matter the challenge, if your employees don’t have a good experience when they contact their benefits provider for help, you’ll hear about it.

And that means you’ll probably have to help them find a solution. We call this “noise.” And noise leaves you less time to focus on your important strategic initiatives.

A positive customer experience for your employees equals a positive customer experience for you.

As HR teams shrink and workloads expand, the benefits provider you work with matters more and more. What happens if a carrier doesn’t resolve issues in a proactive, timely way?

Maybe it takes the form of greater fiduciary responsibility with retirement plans. Or you might have to sort out problems with your employees’ insurance claims. Besides taking time away from business needs, these headaches can also lead to higher costs.

When employees don’t get the coordinated help they need to recover, they may be disabled longer. They can even develop related health problems. Both factors may drive up premiums.
Longer leaves increase the time and money you spend hiring temporary replacements. They also reduce workplace productivity.
Difficulty signing up, changing allocations or understanding plan options can hinder saving. And anything that slows down saving can hurt the retirement readiness of your workforce.

Working with a strong benefits provider will make things easier.

But the partnership should have a broader impact than just freeing up your time. Especially when a claim-triggering event happens to one of your employees. Or stress about retirement makes their future hard to imagine.
