Offer Competitive Benefits with BerniePortal’s Benefits Administration

Offer Competitive Benefits with BerniePortal’s Benefits Administration

In a highly competitive job market, benefits packages can often be the differentiator that sets an organization apart from its competitors. But offering more robust benefits packages can also create more work for HR teams. As organizations look to ramp up their recruitment and retention efforts, streamlining benefits offerings is more crucial than ever.

As a result, employers and HR leaders are turning to Benefits Administration software as a solution to offer employees more robust benefits packages. This feature allows small to medium-sized organizations to offer competitive benefits to recruit and retain top talent with less administrative work. Read on for how BerniePortal’s Benefits Administration works seamlessly with other features during each step of the employee lifecycle to make HR’s life easier and employees happier.  


How BerniePortal’s Benefits Administration Software Boosts Employee Engagement

Benefits administration technology automates the traditional employee benefits selection and management process. Instead of filling out paperwork to select employer-sponsored benefits, employees can make selections using a digital employee self-service system that automatically enrolls them in coverage once approved.

Typically, employees select benefits during open enrollment when they join a company or experience a qualifying life event. From the minute you recruit talent using BerniePortal’s Applicant Tracking and move them into Onboarding, the employee will be able to make all their benefit elections in the same place. This seamless transition throughout each phase of the employee lifecycle eliminates headaches and confusion, creating a more positive employee experience.

Moving your organization’s benefits to a digital portal allows for easier upload and managing of each benefit, giving the flexibility to offer more robust packages. Offering more benefits can set your organization apart from competitors when it comes to recruiting new talent and retaining veteran employees.
