Kids aren’t the only ones with Christmas wish lists. While they may not send theirs off to Santa Claus, HR managers have a host of year-end wants that might result in lower stress levels — as well as making employees happier and healthier in 2019. Here are the 11 at the top of the list.
Congress to not make any last-minute changes to the commuter benefit allowances.
Employees to read their benefit guides and materials.
Participants to take their 2018 insurance cards out of their wallets on Jan. 1 and put in their 2019 insurance cards.
Employees to check their pay stubs in January to ensure the right contributions are being taken from their paychecks for all their desired benefits.
For participants not to need a prescription drug refill on Jan. 1 when all the carriers are closed.
To have a happy employee stop by their HR/benefits specialist’s office to say how happy they are with the benefit package offered.
To have a 100% take-up rate in preventive exams for all covered participants.
To have 100% participation in the wellness program.
To have a return-on-investment formula for wellness programs that does not require a PhD in math.
For all plan participants to have a happy and healthy new year.
