For employers working to increase the productivity of their employees and curb their health spending, effective benefits communication is a necessary challenge. Given the rising cost of healthcare, there is an ever-evolving need to communicate with employees about their role in managing their health and in making informed health care decisions. A comprehensive communications strategy that calls on employees to become part of the solution is the first step in influencing behavior change over time and lowering health care costs. A successful strategy will promote smart purchasing (consumerism) practices and engage employees in health improvement activities.
