BDaily News - Most employers don’t communicate employee benefits frequently enough, shows new research from GRiD

Research revealed today from GRiD shows that only a quarter (25%) of employers make a point of issuing regular communication on their benefits package. 22% do so just once a year. Others use specific events as a prompt: for instance, 36% will communicate benefits when there’s a change in the terms and conditions, such as if pension contributions or terms of cover are set to change. 29% will do so at performance reviews.

GRiD, the industry body for the group risk protection sector (employer-sponsored life assurance, income protection and critical illness) warns that this isn’t enough.

Katharine Moxham, spokesperson for GRiD said: ‘It’s understandable that employers use key events to communicate their benefits, but what an employer sees as a key event may not coincide with what an employee sees as a key event.’
