benefitsConnect & Engage!


Your employees are looking at their phone. Who isn’t these days? Why not bring the importance of total rewards to their phones and ENGAGE YOUR WORKFORCE.

On average, North American adults spend more than 11 hours per day watching, reading, listening to or simply interacting with media, according to a new study by market research group Nielsen. That's up from nine hours, 32 minutes just four years ago.

HR Managers waste an average of 14 hours per week completing tasks manually that could be automated using benefitsConnect.

HR Managers have said that 38 percent of their job applicant tracking is fully automated while 35 percent said that it is partially automated.

Features

benefitConnect is an all-in-one cloud-based human capital management solution that reduces administrative tasks, manages complex employee lifecycles from hire-to-retire, designed specifically with HR in mind as it directly integrates with the insurance carriers and has complete payroll capability.

Mobile

In the event that your employees don’t have a smartphone, benefitsConnect also has a desktop computer platform with the same functionality. We suggest a desktop computer or “terminal” be made available for employees to access at work.


Onboarding vs. Orientation

Within benefitsConnect the two are quite different.  benefitsConnect streamlines the process for hiring new employees in several ways:

  1. One-time entry
  2. Employee self-service portal, so that the information is the most accurate it can be
  3. Tracking completed documents
  4. Compliance which has employees sign-off on policy specific documents, i.e. employee handbooks, benefit booklets
Tasks can also be assigned to team members for training purposes.

Orientation – is on-the-job knowledge gathering, assigning mentors, learning how the company operates with feet on the ground.  Meeting team members that the new hire will be regularly interacting with to get their job done.


Applicant Tracking System (ATS)

HR Managers can post jobs with top job boards directly from benefitConnect, where applicants can be screened, tracked, communicated with and scheduled for interviews.  Once a hiring decision has been made they are easily moved to Onboarding.


Payroll

benefitsConnect has the capability to connect to 3rd party systems, such as accounting software, via an API or File Feed with import functionality. The connection type will depend on the 3rd party system.

If a client transitions mid-year, we will take the taxable benefit year-to-date amount from their benefits provider and continue to add onto that YTD amount. All YTD information will be up to date no matter what time of the year the implementation starts.

You can have as many bank accounts as your organization currently uses to run payroll.


Training

Your implementation specialist will ensure that all administrators are fully trained on how to navigate through the various features chosen.

Communication
