MENLO PARK, Calif.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--GuideSpark, a digital employee communications company, has launched a solution for explaining benefits and the complex implications of health care reform (HCR). This Health Care Reform Video Series gives customers on-demand, customized communication tools to engage and educate employees on HCR. The video series can help busy human resource executives reach employees with vital information and empower them to become smarter consumers of their benefits.
“Engaging employees through on-demand, customized video not only can save money and reduce HR support calls, but it also can increase enrollment in important benefit programs and improve the employer/employee relationship.”
As the first of October approaches, employers have an opportunity to help employees understand how HCR will impact their individual benefits plans. At the same time, employees are becoming increasingly accustomed to accessing information – especially short-form videos – on their smartphones, laptops and tablets both at home and at work. GuideSpark’s solution delivers clear and concise information in a straightforward and engaging way through video technology – giving HR professionals an alternative approach to traditional paper-based communication that have limited impact.
GuideSpark offers a Health Care Reform Video Series that is broken down into easy-to-digest pieces, including videos that focus on:
- Simplifying Health Care Reform: Provides an easy-to-understand timeline of changes and gives a high-level overview of the individual mandate, insurance exchanges and the Cadillac tax.
- Health Insurance Marketplaces: Explains what a health insurance exchange is, the services it provides and how to determine eligibility.
- Open Enrollment: Communicates the impact HCR will have on the company’s 2014 benefits plans.
Additional videos are available that cover related topics, such as how to be a better consumer of benefits in a post-HCR world and overall health and wellness information.
“The web has changed the way people consume information, and employees are no exception. Our customers see demand increasing for new ways to take complex content like HCR and deliver it in a way that is rich in nature but easy to digest,” said GuideSpark CEO Keith Kitani. “Engaging employees through on-demand, customized video not only can save money and reduce HR support calls, but it also can increase enrollment in important benefit programs and improve the employer/employee relationship.”
