Simplifying benefits to increase employee engagement

Restructuring for growth initiated an evaluation of employee benefits for a leading national provider of consumer health and home care electronics technology. Challenges included a fragmented benefits offering provided by multiple, non-integrated carriers and vendors, as well as an employee population that was confused and not engaged in their benefits and programs.
