Since 2016, the team at LearnYour Benefits has been offering their video-focused employee benefits communications solution to midsized and large enterprises looking to boost the effectiveness of their employee benefits communications. HR, Benefits, and Total Rewards Teams in midsized to large enterprises have recognized for decades that effective, video-focused employee benefits communications increases benefits adoption, lowers overall employee benefits costs, and increase employee retention.
“In 2022 we decided it was time to help employers of all sizes!” Quoted LearnYour Benefits’ CEO, Brian Gezella. ”Two-thirds of all employees work for small or midsized employers that offer employee benefits. Unfortunately, these employers have never had access to an employee benefits communications solution affordable and meaningfully effective at helping their employees navigate their overall health and wellness. Instead, they rely on their brokers and a hodgepodge of print-based tools, leading to employee confusion and wasted money. Video-focused employee benefits communications works, but has historically only been affordable and effective for enterprises. But now, thanks to our new features and capabilities, any size employer or broker has access to effective, enterprise-quality, video-focused employee benefits communications capabilities.”
Significant New Capabilities and Improvements
In their mission to offer an employee benefits communications software solution that makes enterprise-quality, video-focused benefits communications universally accessible and affordable for any size employer or broker, LearnYour Benefits released a significantly updated version of their software in July 2023. The updates fall into three categories, (1) simplifying getting started, (2) ensuring effortless administration, and (3) ensuring employees are effectively educated and engaged.
1. Simplifying Getting Started with LearnYour Benefits
LearnYour Benefits is now offering a Free Trial to anyone who wishes to demo their solution first-hand. Getting started takes less than 60 seconds. During the free trial, new users can create their own branded, desktop and mobile benefits education portal, watch their videos, experiment with their many features, and experience just how easy it is to administer LearnYour Benefits in real time. Moreover, users can attend unlimited, free live or recorded orientation and training sessions, and will receive multiple client success team nurturing touchpoints. Upon purchase, LearnYour Benefits now includes expert setup and optimization services, and ongoing concierge and support services.
2. Ensuring Effortless Administration
Ensuring on-going, effortless administration starts with software that’s easy to use. LearnYour Benefits just revamped their entire menu and content management system to make content management and real-time site and video customizations even more intuitive and user-friendly. Sites are now effortless to manage-and come pre-loaded with a library of optional benefits education videos. Moreover, accessing tool tips, how-to videos, and support is only a click away. “We now have a platform in which all our benefit offerings are clearly displayed and accessible in one site. Current employees, their spouses, as well as potential employees, can access our benefits information. The implementation went very smoothly, and the site was up and running as promised. I don’t know what took me so long to partner with the Learn Your Benefit folks – I wish I did sooner! We now have a platform in which all our benefit offerings are clearly displayed and accessible in one site.” Quoted the Corporate Benefits and Risk Manager for an international manufacturing client with approximately 600 employees.
3. Ensuring Employees are Effectively Educated and Engaged
LearnYour Benefits has always provided stock and custom video educational experiences to employees. However, in June 2023, LearnYour Benefits significantly expanded their video library and now offer more than 120 videos that thoroughly articulate dozens of typical benefit offerings. Launched alongside this expansion is version 2.0 of their in-video content recommendation tool. Any video uploaded to LearnYour Benefits, even the stock videos, can now be customized on-the-fly with relevant content for each employer’s benefits. For example, a stock video on the topic of 401(k) Accounts can display custom content, such as annual limits, company matching programs, tips, and links to documents, websites, or other videos. Any video in LearnYour Benefits can now both educate and help employees navigate their overall health and wellness.
Additional enhancements include targeted benefits overview videos that can be customized to fit company needs, the ability to create landing pages for on-going communications and promotions, endless message and FAQ areas for consistent messaging, and the ability to share content using QR codes. The LearnYour Benefits solution alleviates the struggles of managing multiple, old-school benefits communications tools with one solution.
“QuickBooks™ revolutionized the DIY accounting industry. They made previously expensive, complex, company-specific accounting processes much more affordable and effortless for any size organization. LearnYour Benefits is doing the same thing for benefits communications. We’re making historically expensive, enterprise-quality, video-focused communications more affordable, approachable, and financially effective for any-size organization. We’re helping employers help their employees live healthier, happier, lives.” Said Gezella.
LearnYour Benefits is a multi-featured employee benefits communication solution that delivers an on-demand, video-focused experience that helps employees understand and navigate their benefits, yet remains affordable, insightful, and effortless to customize for the employer or broker. LearnYour Benefits was founded in 2016 by Brian Gezella and Korey Erb, with the hopes of making year-round, online employee benefits communications universally accessible so every employer or broker can effortlessly help their employees navigate and improve their overall wellness and ultimately focus on their own mission.
LearnYour Benefits has quickly grown to serve hundreds of employers, and have a client list that includes small employers, enterprises, local and regional brokers, national brokers, associations, and other HR products and services. No two organizations are alike – so LearnYour Benefits offers pricing and services that scale based on the size and needs of the client.
