Are You Ready for Open Enrollment?

For many employers, it’s that time of year again: So, do you feel ready for open enrollment? This presentation will walk you through all the essential steps employers must take to prepare for open enrollment, starting with the decision to offer coverage, and then moving on to a discussion of the documents that must be distributed, how to satisfy the applicable foreign language and distribution requirements, and how to ensure you have the right documentation to demonstrate that an offer of coverage was made to all eligible employees. Tips and an action plan will be included.

  With clients in talent-driven sectors like technology, entertainment, non-profit and financial services, Hunt Turner helps employers thrive even when the labor market is tight. He says a smart benefits strategy is key for employers whose success depends on attracting and retaining talent. “I like to continually have that conversation with my clients in an honest and transparent way, so we can work together to align staffing, growth and budget.” Along with strategy, Hunt keeps his focus on cutting edge tactics that lend efficiency to the traditionally cumbersome process of benefit communications, enrollment and administration.
