Traditional Benefit Communication Methods do Workers a Disservice
Employee Benefit News & Employee Benefit Adviser

Retaining top talent is a major focus for all organizations and it is undeniable that benefits play a key role in these efforts. In fact, an Aflac Workforces Report notes that “workers who are extremely or very satisfied with their benefits program are 6 times more likely to stay with their employer compared to workers who are dissatisfied with their benefits program.” Many competitive organizations already offer robust benefit packages; however, far too many employees are unaware of the comprehensive nature of their benefits and do not utilize them effectively. HR can combat this disconnect by providing ongoing, effective benefit communication and education.  Read More Here…

Zika Virus

Posted by Blog Tipster on Fri, Dec 30, 2016 @ 03:30 PM

Zika.jpg

Looking back on 2016, the Zika Virus was certainly a hot, yet troublesome, topic.  Unfortunately, Zika is still a concern and since there are so many questions surrounding the virus, eni’s BalanceCare Guides wanted to provide our members with a few important FAQs.

What is the Zika virus?

Zika is a mosquito borne illness. Its name is derived from the Zika Forest of Uganda where the virus was first isolated in 1947. 

How is it spread?

  • Mosquito bites
  • From a pregnant woman to her fetus
  • Sex
  • Blood transfusions
  • If the virus continues to spread, additional methods may be added to this list

What are the symptoms?

Many people who contract the Zika Virus won’t have any symptoms.  However, the most common symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Rash
  • Joint pain
  • Conjunctivitis (red eyes)
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache

Symptoms can last for several days up to a week. Once a person is infected with Zika, they are likely to be protected from future infections.

Why is it dangerous?

If you contract the Zika Virus while pregnant, it can cause birth defects such as microcephaly, defects of the eye, hearing and impaired growth.

How can you prevent Zika?

Although there is no vaccine to prevent Zika, there are several things you can do to protect yourself from getting bitten by any type of mosquito:

  • Wear long sleeved shirts, long pants, hats, and socks.
  • Treat clothing and gear with permethrin or buy pre-treated items. Permethrin is a medication and chemical used as an insecticide. Permethrin is a cream or spray which can be purchased over the counter at your local drug or department store.
  • Use insect repellent with one of the following ingredients:
    • DEET
    • Picaridin
    • IR3535
    • Oil of lemon eucalyptus
    • Para-menthane-diol

These are safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women when used as directed.

*DO NOT use insect repellents on babies younger than 2 months old*

*DO NOT use oil of lemon eucalyptus or para-menthane-diol on children younger than 3 years old*

While at home:

  • Stay in air conditioned places.
  • Use screens in windows and doors to keep mosquitoes outside.
  • Use mosquito netting to cover babies under 2 months old in carriers, strollers, and cribs.
  • Sleep under a mosquito bed net if sleeping outdoors.
  • Prevent sexual transmission by using condoms or abstaining from sex.
  • Avoid places where mosquitoes are breeding, such as swamps.
  • Get rid of water containers to eliminate mosquitoes’ breeding sites.

How Zika is diagnosed

  • Diagnosis is based on person’s recent travel history, symptoms, and test results
  • Blood or urine test
  • Tests may be used to rule out other infections

If you have Zika

  • Get plenty of rest
  • Drink lots of fluids to prevent dehydration
  • Take fever and pain reducer
  • DO NOT take aspirin or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
  • If you’re taking medicine for another condition, talk to your healthcare provider before taking additional medication

Traveling

Before you travel, check the CDC travel advisory list which is frequently updated. If pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant, check with your healthcare provider and follow their advice.

Since Zika infections in the United States are relatively new, the implications for the medical insurance community is still a bit of an unknown.  If our members do have any questions, please call BalanceCare and we can get answers for you.

How to Throw a Party

Posted by Blog Tipster on Tue, Dec 06, 2016 @ 11:33 AM

champagne celebration.jpg

The holiday season is in full swing and there’s no better time for a party.  eni’s Personal Assistants want to help you plan a holiday party for the history books.  It’s important to keep in mind that on average, about 70 percent of the invitees will attend. Therefore, it’s not a bad idea to invite a few more people than you can actually fit at your location.

Give your guests advanced notice.  Let them know the date of the party a few weeks prior so they can set that weekend aside. Then send a reminder as it gets closer to the party.  Mail, e-mail, phone and even social media invitations are acceptable for general parties and get-togethers.  If it is a more formal event, you may want to stick with sending invitations in the mail.

Pick a theme if you want one as theme parties have become more popular.  Decorations, food/drinks, and music can all fit into whatever theme you choose.  Here are just a few theme ideas:

  • Have an “ugly sweater party”. Invite all guests to wear their “ugliest” holiday themed sweater.  Place old family photos around your home from a time gone by when holiday sweaters were all the rage.  You can even have a contest and give a prize to the guest with the “ugliest” sweater.
  • Everyone has heard of “Christmas in July” parties, well this holiday season throw a “Summer in December” party. Decorate with a beach theme, complete with beach balls as party favors and play some relaxing reggae music in the background.  Use tropical fruit such as bananas, pineapples and coconuts as edible décor.  Brave the cold and grill up some summer favorites and serve punch and the tropical drink of your choice.  Invite your guests to dress “Island Casual”. 
  • Throw a New Year’s Eve Gala. Break out your classiest decorations and don’t forget the confetti.  Serve plenty of delicate hors d'oeuvres along with champagne and/or sparkling cider.  Invite your guests to dress in their favorite formalwear.  Finally, be sure to play music that people will want to dance to.

Start cleaning your house a few weeks before the party and as time gets closer, you can rearrange the furniture as needed, hang lights, decorate, etc.  Starting the process a few weeks earlier will give you time to run out to get things you may have forgotten you needed.

If you expect a large number of people or there’s a chance the party may be loud, be respectful and inform any neighbors that are close by.

Remove and hide anything of significant value so it is not out in the open and cannot be damaged or stolen.  You may also want to hide personal things, like medicine, in the bathroom cabinet, etc.

Don’t forget trash cans!  Have a place for garbage set up in a few different locations.  It will make the cleaning process easier for you if someone can easily access a trash can.  Check them periodically throughout the party and change the bags so they don’t overflow.

Finally, make sure there is plenty of seating for your guests and have fun!

Life Event Technology

Posted by Blog Tipster on Thu, Nov 03, 2016 @ 11:07 AM

Life event Video Still.jpg

With the myriad of software and mobile apps designed to simplify benefit administration, the focus shifts from meeting employee needs to consolidating employee benefits.  Employees become lost in a maze of benefits, resulting in underutilization of their benefits and a lack of knowledge about how their benefits can meet their everyday needs.  Life event technology changes all that by bringing the focus back to the individual – by addressing each individual employee’s unique life needs through harnessing the power of modern technology.

What is a life event and how do life events relate to benefits?  A life event is defined as “any significant step, event, or milestone a person may experience in their life”.  Consider all of the life events that employees may experience over the course of their career – from getting married, to pregnancy, to grief, to finding the right college for their child, all the way up to retirement.  With traditional benefit administration technology, benefits are consolidated but still siloed with no connection to the life events occurring in employees’ lives.  An employee purchasing a home has no guidance on how any of his or her existing benefits can help during the home buying process.  Similarly, an employee providing care for an ill family member is provided no information as to how his or her benefits can alleviate the stress of caregiving.  Using life event technology, an employee’s life event is the hub around which the employee’s benefits revolve, with each benefit applied to assist with each unique life event.

Let’s take a more in depth look at the two life events mentioned above that many employees experience to see how life event technology works to assist employees:

Purchasing a Home

Buying a home is a significant and often overwhelming time in a person’s life.  Fortunately, many employees have a variety of benefits available to support them throughout this process.  For example, an employee may choose to access their Retirement Benefit in order to borrow money against their 401K for a down payment.  The employee could utilize their Work/Life Benefit for assistance researching home prices, neighborhoods, school districts, moving companies, etc.  The employee could also use their Financial Benefit to learn about mortgage structures, interest rates, rolling property taxes into the mortgage or paying separately, etc.  Finally, the employee could access their pre-paid Legal Benefit to help review closing documents.

Caring for a Loved One With a Serious Illness

Helping a loved one through a serious illness is a stressful and emotional time that often impacts an employee’s overall productivity.  There are many benefits that can help with this distressing life event.  Of course, if the loved one is a dependent, the employee will be utilizing their Health Insurance frequently.  When dealing with a serious illness of a dependent, an employee’s Health Advocacy service would be very helpful with specialist referrals/pre-authorizations/bill mediation/medication information/etc.  If the loved one has a terminal illness, the employee should be reminded to review their Life Insurance benefit.  The employee could also utilize their free Legal Consultation to assist in developing an estate plan if the diagnosis is terminal.  Dealing with the illness of a loved one can be extremely stressful and an employee’s EAP is available to help them handle the situation.  Caring for a loved one can also be draining and even start to impact the employee’s own health.  By utilizing their Wellness Benefit the employee can learn relaxation techniques/healthy eating techniques/quick exercises/etc. to help keep themselves healthy.

As we can see, even the most unlikely benefits can complement one another.  With life event technology, employees receive individual guidance about how their benefits can work together to assist with their life events.  As a result, employers receive a higher return on investment of their benefit dollars while employees receive a much more effective benefit experience and customized guidance about their individual life needs.

Learn more about our life event technology and join the HR revolution by reviewing BalanceBenefits on our website.   You can order “Beyond Benefits” by Gene Raymondi, CEO and thought leader, watch our quick video, request a demo, or simply send us an email requesting more information.   

We look forward to helping you with your benefit needs!

Engaging Millennials

Posted by Blog Tipster on Thu, Aug 11, 2016 @ 11:54 AM

HR_Mobile_App_Video.jpg

The Millennials are coming, the Millennials are coming … the Millennials are here!  Armed with shiny smart phones, mobile devices, and cloud based technology, this knowledgeable group of technological revolutionaries are ready to collaborate and contribute to your workforce.   More than 1 out of every 3 workers today belong to the Millennial generation and, by 2025, Millennials are expected to comprise nearly 75% of the global workforce (The Brookings Institution, 2014).  The Millennials are here to stay and they are raising the technological bar for companies across the globe.  While their presence in the workforce is well known, their longevity with any one employer is not.  In fact, a 2016 study showed that “66% of Millennials express a desire to leave their organizations by 2020” (Deloitte, 2016).  With the cost of recruiting and training new employees ever soaring, retaining Millennials is of paramount importance to most employers. 

Perhaps the first step to retaining Millennials is to communicate with them using the technological platform that they desire, which is through mobile devices.  With nearly two-thirds of Americans owning a smart phone, mobile devices have become a “key entry point to the online world” not only for Millennials but for other generations in the workforce as well (Pew Research Center, 2015).   For Millennials, in particular, mobile devices have become an extension of who they are.  Recent research showed usage increasing for mobile devices with nearly 78% of consumer interactions occurring on them (Fluent, 2016).  

The question becomes what does this mean for the HR industry.  Well, in order to attract and retain Millennial employees, you must provide them with customized benefits, via a mobile app, that meets their individual needs and life events!  Research supports that our modern workforce, including Millennials, feels that “benefits that can be customized to meet their needs, would increase their loyalty to their employers” (MetLife, 2016).   Marry mobile technology to a tailored benefits package - and a highly engaging benefits mobile app is born!    

How pressing is the need for a benefits mobile app to engage your Millennial workforce?  A recent study found that a “desire for mobile communication among employees” for benefit information is on the rise (MetLife 2015). Employees are increasingly eager to use a mobile app to manage benefits, access benefit enrollment information, and for learning and benefit education. (MetLife 2015).  Nearly 53% of these employees in this same study reported a need, however, for “more help understanding how their benefits work or how benefits meet their needs”.  Millennials, in particular, evidenced “greater gaps in understanding” their benefits due, perhaps, to “a lack of awareness and exposure over the course of their relatively new career spans” (Metlife 2016).  

It’s time to bridge the generational gap in benefit understanding and communicate benefit information using the technological tools preferred by Millennials with a benefits mobile app!  The result will be an engaged, productive, and loyal workforce.

OSHA Issues Final Recordkeeping Rule

Posted by Blog Tipster on Wed, Jul 20, 2016 @ 03:33 PM

Blue_Collar_Worker_Construction_Worker.jpg

OSHA has issued a final rule that revises its requirements for Recording and Reporting Occupational Injuries and Illnesses.  This change in OSHA’s rulemaking requirements will ultimately improve safety for workers across the country.

The final rule, which was announced on May 11, will now require about 750,000 employers to submit detailed annual reports of workplace injuries and illnesses for publication online.  The frequency and content of these submissions will be dependent upon the size and industry of the employer. 

  • Employers with 250 or more employees that are subject to OSHA's recordkeeping regulation must electronically submit to OSHA some of the information from the Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA Form 300), the Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA Form 300A), and the Injury and Illness Incident Report (OSHA Form 301).
  • Employers with 20-249 employees in certain high-risk industries must electronically submit to OSHA some of the information from the Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA Form 300A).
  • Employers with fewer than 20 employees at all times during the year do not have to routinely submit information electronically to OSHA.

The final rule takes effect Jan. 1, 2017, and reporting requirements will be phased in over two years, as follows:

  • Employers with 250 or more employees must begin submitting information from Form 300A by July 1, 2017, and must submit information from all forms (300A, 300, and 301) by July 1, 2018. Beginning in 2019 and every year thereafter, the information must be submitted by March 2.
  • Employers with 20-249 employees in certain high-risk industries must begin submitting information from Form 300A by July 1, 2017, and again by July 1, 2018. Beginning in 2019 and every year thereafter, the information must be submitted by March 2.

The final rule also amends the recordkeeping regulation on how employers inform their employees of the process for reporting work-related injuries and illnesses.  Employers are prohibited from deterring or discouraging workers from reporting injuries or illnesses, and are required to inform employees of their right to report work-related injuries and illnesses free from retaliation.

Additionally, ALL EMPLOYERS must inform employees of their procedure for reporting work-related injuries and illnesses by AUGUST 10, 2016.

One way for employers to meet this requirement is by posting the OSHA "It's The Law" worker rights poster from April 2015 or later (http://www.osha.gov/Publications/poster.html).

NOTE:  The electronic submission requirements do not change an employer’s obligation to complete and retain injury and illness records.

Organic Produce that is Worth the Price

Posted by Blog Tipster on Wed, Jul 13, 2016 @ 02:49 PM

Do you find yourself asking, “What food is really worth buying organic?”  If pesticides and other contaminants worry you when shopping for fruits and vegetables, you may consider buying organic.  Many people’s budgets are limited, so you may not be able to afford to buy all organic produce.  Therefore, it’s important to determine the produce that should be bought organically vs. what is safe to buy conventional (non-organic).  Strawberries, for example, top the list of fruits and vegetables contaminated with the most pesticides.  According to the Environmental Working Group there are 300 pounds of pesticides applied to each acre of conventional strawberries! 

We will begin with the most contaminated foods.  The foods listed below are considered the “Dirty Dozen” and should be purchased organically if possible:   

  • Strawberries
  • Apples
  • Nectarines
  • Peaches
  • Celery
  • Grapes
  • Cherries
  • Spinach
  • Tomatoes
  • Sweet Bell Peppers
  • Cucumbers
  • Pears

Some fruits and vegetables are not as contaminated as others.  Some produce have a natural defense because of an outer layer of skin, such as corn or pineapple. If you are looking to simply avoid pesticides, there are several conventionally-grown produce that have little to no residue. In general, you are going to be safe from pesticide residue by purchasing conventional versions of the following fruits and vegetables, known as the “Clean Fifteen":

  • Asparagus
  • Avocado
  • Cabbage
  • Cantaloupe
  • Cauliflower
  • Eggplant
  • Grapefruit
  • Kiwi
  • Onion
  • Mango
  • Pineapple
  • Corn
  • Peas
  • Papaya
  • Sweet Potato

All the produce on “The Clean 15” list has little to no traces of pesticides and is quite safe to consume in non-organic form.

Look for the USDA Organic Seal when selecting your organic purchases. The organic seal means the food is grown, harvested, and processed according to government standards that include limits on pesticides, hormones, and antibiotics. Natural pesticides are allowed. Organic food cannot be treated with any sewage sludge, bioengineering, or ionizing radiation.  

Look for this seal when purchasing produce on the “dirty dozen” list.
