Monday Morning Quarterback — How to Analyze Your 2015 Annual Enrollment and Prepare for Next Year

The stress of annual enrollment is over. You put in a ton of work and now you can look forward to the coming year. But not so fast. Just like any winning team, it’s important to reflect on how your organization performed. What were the winning touchdowns? Any interceptions that you wish you could have avoided?
If you added up the penalties, would you still consider it a win?

In this presentation, participants will learn how to:

  • Identify key metrics and feedback tools to measure success.
  • Use tools to streamline next year’s planning process.
  • Use marketing and education techniques to keep the momentum going.

Using Data to Target Communications and Drive Participant Behavior

Data segmentation can be extremely complex. Big data tools and resources are used to analyze multiple cross sections of data to create specific user profiles. Communication messages are then segmented and customized to meet the preferences of each profile.

Don’t let big data discourage you. There are simpler ways to use the data you currently have at your fingertips to target your communications and achieve measurable results.

In this presentation, participants will learn how to:

  • Use HR data to target communications.
  • Segment messages to increase engagement.
  • Maximize communication budgets to get the best results.

Why Storytelling Should Be a Key HR Competency

A well-told story can make us laugh, cry, feel anger or joy. It’s like opening a window into the minds of the listeners. Storytelling can be used to increase engagement, encourage action and enhance an organization.

In this presentation, participants will learn how to:

  • Implement storytelling techniques to attract, retain and train employees.
  • Share employees’ stories to pique emotion, stimulate a need, elicit a vision and increase engagement.
  • Encourage storytelling to uncover common challenges among your HR team and develop solutions.
  • Use storytelling techniques to communicate a clear vision of the role HR plays in the success of the organization.

5 Common Communication Blunders (and How to Avoid Them)

To become a true business partner, HR professionals need to know how to maximize every portion of their budget to get the best return on investment. Sadly, although organizations invest a great deal of time and money designing competitive benefit programs, they sometimes drop the ball when it comes to communicating those benefits.

In this presentation, participants will learn how to:

  • Engage spouses/partners when communicating benefits.
  • Involve organization leaders as a sounding board.
  • Communicate in an honest, forthright manner to build trust.
  • Focus on key messages in initial communications, then direct participants to sources, such as websites, for more detail.
  • Keep messages clear, concise and consistent.

Benefits Communications Made Simple (3 Techniques and 3 Case Studies Prove You Can Cut Through Clutter to Get Results)

Benefits aren’t exactly simple. They’re complicated, confusing and (thanks to the government) constantly changing. But there are three simple techniques you can start using immediately to cut through the noise of today’s multi-media environment, grab your employees’ attention and motivate them to take action. Translate theory into practical application by reviewing three real-world case studies that produced measurable results.

In this presentation, participants will learn how to:

  • Create communications that speak directly to the target audience to engage them on a personal level.
  • Focus communications so key messages break through the clutter.
  • Streamline communications to eliminate the “fire hose effect” on your target audience.

Convert your SPDs from “Seriously Painful Documents” to Easy-to-Read-and-Use Summary Plan Descriptions

The government requires employers to provide Summary Plan Descriptions (SPDs) to participants eligible for an ERISA-covered health or retirement plan. Here’s the problem: Participants want an SPD that’s understandable. Lawyers want an SPD that provides protection. The benefits department wants an SPD that answers questions. So how can you meet all these criteria and still produce a useable document?

In this presentation, participants will learn how to:

  • Write an SPD so it is easy to understand and use.
  • Format text to increase scanability and readability.
  • Record, maintain and distribute SPDs economically, either electronically
    or in print.

Writing professionally or at least intelligently is so important because oftentimes people base their first impression of you on how well you write. This session was so relevant for work or personal communication. Loved it!
