Communications and Engagement

Employee communications and engagement

Choosing the right health and benefits options can be overwhelming for employees, but the results can have a profound impact on an employee’s wellbeing and a company’s overall benefits spending. At Alera Group, we understand that engaging employees in their health and benefits involves personalizing the experience and delivering the information in ways that are easy for employees to access, understand and act on. 

Alera Group’s dedicated Employee Communications practice helps you educate your employees to make informed benefits decisions and deliver strategies to help employees stay engaged during open enrollment and throughout the year. Our experts will work with you to:
