Open enrollment can be an overwhelming time for HR departments and employees alike. Our educational materials, tools and communications can help streamline and simplify the process for your company and employees.
Employee Benefit Communications

With resources provided by Puget Sound Benefit Services, employers can educate employees about benefits available to them and how to best use those benefits. Such resources include communications to employees about healthcare reform and the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA), and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
