One of the primary keys to attracting top talent and maximizing retention and current workforce engagement is through a competitive and clearly communicated benefit package. With the job market becoming more diverse and the influx of tech savvy millennials joining the labor pool, cities and other public sector employers are looking for new and innovative ways to expand their employee benefit options.
A successful benefits strategy isn’t limited to open enrollment, but is an evolving process that includes new hire considerations, employee communication, and staying up-to-date with compliance standards and requirements. Identifying a true benefits communication strategy allows employees to feel informed and more prepared. When employees collectively understand their benefits and how they work together, they are more likely to make informed decisions, resulting in tax savings, minimized gaps in coverage, and stronger financial security.
While in-person benefit consultations are popular and beneficial, they’re not the only communication method available. The concept of "one size fits all" is no longer acceptable in employee benefits. Employers are constantly being challenged to find ways to communicate with their employees in a language they understand, through channels they prefer.
In recognition of TML’s mission of providing valuable assistance and resources to its members, American Fidelity Assurance Company is proud to be the League’s newest endorsed partner and stand shoulder to shoulder to provide insight, industry experience and customized benefit solutions for its members. As a nationally recognized benefits communication company and administrative services provider, American Fidelity currently partners with over 6,200 public sector employers and serves more than 1 million customers. They also hold a strong reputation locally, having served Tennessee public sector employers for over 53 years and partnering with over 80 local municipalities, counties, and school districts.
American Fidelity offers a competitive suite of services and communication tools to educate and empower employees, maximize benefit offerings, reduce employer costs, while complimenting your existing medical insurance plans. Many of these services, including Enrollment Technology, Reimbursement Account Administration (FSA, HSA, HRA), Compliance Services, Dependent Verification Reviews and Enhanced Employee Funded Benefits, are offered at no cost to TML members. And since American Fidelity manages and administers all of their services in-house, cities gain more control over strategy and implementation and spend less time reconciling bills and managing various vendors.
With increases in audit activity, benefit plan design changes and rising costs, we encourage you to see how American Fidelity’s solutions can provide value to both you and your employees.
