"Decision-support tools alone are not enough to educate and inspire employees to appreciate the full value of their benefits," Wayne Wall, CEO and founder of Flimp Communications
BOSTON, MA, March 08, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Flimp Communications, the leading full-service provider of digital employee communication and engagement solutions, today announced the launch of Flimp 360. HR leaders and benefits managers work incredibly hard to build a comprehensive, innovative benefits package that can meet the needs of all employees, and, in most mid-large sized organizations, this means spending millions. However, most employees still don't realize the value of their benefits or how to choose them properly. Flimp 360 solves this by offering both engaging benefits education and decision-support tools together in one low-cost, flexible solution that supercharges the value and understanding of benefits packages.
According to a MetLife study, 67 percent of employees report that reading about benefits is complicated, intimidating or stressful. Flimp 360 marries together Flimp's industry-leading decision-support tool, PLANselect, with engaging digital communications content—and it only takes five minutes for employees to complete. PLANselect's completion rates offer HR leaders a huge advantage over other costly decision-support tools that are abandoned by employees due to length or complexity.
Flimp 360 makes it easy to positively impact employee understanding and appreciation of benefits, and drive smarter decisions that deliver value to the employee and the employer. PLANselect offers the highest benefits-engagement rates of any decision-support tool in the industry, with employee-engagement rates averaging 70 percent, when combined with a Digital Postcard.
"Working with some of the world's largest organizations, we realized that, while benefits packages are incredibly important for recruiting and retention, communicating the value of plans, and helping employees make the right decisions for their specific needs, is still a major issue," said Wayne Wall, CEO and founder of Flimp Communications. "We developed Flimp 360 to streamline the benefits-communication process and provide HR leaders with everything needed to empower their employees to make great decisions for their financial, mental, and physical health."
Flimp 360 is an easy-to-deploy solution used for engaging and educating employees year-round on topics like open enrollment, company policies, onboarding, voluntary benefits education, and more. The solution works particularly well for industries that need to reach employees who are not in front of computers all day, as is the case in fields like education, healthcare, municipalities, retail, manufacturing, and construction.
"Decision-support tools alone are not enough to educate and inspire employees to appreciate the full value of their benefits," continued Wall. "More work is needed to empower employees to act, and HR teams don't have the luxury of time or the design skills required to create compelling benefits-education campaigns, so that's where Flimp 360 comes in. We partner closely with our clients to deliver the best solution for their communications needs and help shine a light on their benefits investments."
The Three Pillars of Flimp 360
Flimp 360 has everything an HR department needs to educate, enroll, and engage employees in benefits programs.
