ConnectYourCare and Winston Benefits Present Webinar Focused on Taking Open Enrollment Virtual in 2020 and Beyond

Designed for Employers, HR Professionals, and Benefits Brokers Navigating the COVID-19 Pandemic

Hunt Valley, MD, September 14, 2020

ConnectYourCare, a national leader in consumer-directed health care account solutions and highly compliant COBRA administration, is partnering with Winston Benefits, a leader in benefits administration, enrollment, and communications solutions, to present a webinar on September 17, 2020, entitled, Making Benefits a Virtual Reality: How to Take Open Enrollment Online in 2020 and Beyond.

While some employers have had a virtual open enrollment strategy in place, this year marks the first for the majority. Accordingly, ConnectYourCare and Winston Benefits are offering employers and brokers key tips and proven practices to help navigating open enrollment, present—during the COVID-19 pandemic—and future.

“Under normal circumstances, open enrollment is a major undertaking for any employer, let alone during a global pandemic that has forced a significant number of businesses to quickly adopt a remote working model, which may continue into the foreseeable future,” says Nicole Williams, Senior Vice President of Broker Strategies at ConnectYourCare.

Continues Williams, “This means employers and brokers face a host of new challenges—from learning how to successfully drive education and enrollment from afar—to obtaining the technology and resources to accommodate an online open enrollment fair for the first time. We want to serve as a resource to help lessen the weight and the stress of open enrollment this year.”

Topics to be discussed during the webinar include:

  • A checklist for launching and executing a virtual open enrollment fair
  • Best practices for building and distributing communications for all employee class types (full-time, part-time, and furloughed)
  • Choosing a technology platform that meets the needs of your organization
  • Real-life examples of how companies are adapting to the needs of their workforce
  • Considerations for a long-term open enrollment strategy

Webinar presenters include: Nicole Williams, Senior Vice President of Broker Strategies at ConnectYourCare; Kyle Sheridan, Vice President of Client Success at ConnectYourCare; and Katie Soehngen, Employer Solutions Support Manager at Winston Benefits.
