Solutions for Managing and Reducing Time-Consuming HR Tasks
Reducing time spent on administrative tasks gives HR more bandwidth to focus on staffing, budgeting and other issues critical to the survival and growth of the organization. Many platforms and solutions exist to help manage and reduce day-to-day HR and benefits administration functions, but most come with an additional cost ($2 to $4 per employee, per month). USI Insurance Services offers a range of solutions to help employee benefits clients manage time-consuming HR, regulatory and benefits administration tasks at no additional cost.
Benefits Resource Center
HR teams are often overwhelmed with answering employees’ questions about open enrollment, benefits and claims issues — especially when employers make significant adjustments to their benefit plans. USI’s regional Benefits Resource Centers (BRCs) ease the burden by providing employees with a direct point of contact to answer benefits questions. BRC also works with the employer’s insurance company to resolve any claims issues. Staffed by USI Benefits Specialists, BRC provides dedicated advocacy and attention to our clients’ plan members, greatly improving employee satisfaction while significantly reducing HR’s involvement in repetitive day-to-day administrative tasks. This allows HR more time to focus on strategic initiatives to support the organization.
USI’s Mobile App MyBenefits2Go gives employees and their dependents a convenient, centralized place to access and organize their benefits information, such as plan details and benefits summaries, insurance ID cards, open enrollment resources, and educational information, as well as access to their regional BRC and insurance carrier contacts. Contact your local USI benefits consultant for a demo of the mobile app.
Annual Service Calendar
The successful management of employee benefits requires thoughtful planning and regular execution of numerous activities to meet regulatory requirements. Failing to meet deadlines and other requirements could result in significant penalties and negatively impact employee satisfaction. USI’s service calendars help employers with strategic planning and timely communications, adhering to compliance requirements and assisting with early renewal negotiations.
