Employee communications toolkit for small businesses

April 2014

Building and maintaining strong communications with employees may be tough, but it’s beneficial to your business in the long run.

According to the 2013 Aflac WorkForces Report, 43 percent of workers believe HR doesn’t communicate with them often enough.1 To help bridge the gap, Aflac has created an Employee Communications Toolkit to help improve and encourage discussions about benefits in the workplace.

Communicating with employees about health care benefits isn’t always easy – especially if you don’t have the time, knowledge or staff to create a continuous stream of materials that keep workers in the know.

Whether you communicate via intranet, newsletter or magazine, the Employee Communications Toolkit provides you with ready-to-publish communications materials customizable to your business. Easily accessible, it includes a variety of resources you can share with employees, such as articles, personal emails, and bulletin board items to hang in your break room.

To further improve communication in your workplace, here are three quick tips:

  1. Try communicating different components of your employee benefits program throughout the year – not just during enrollment.
  2. Employ a variety of communication methods, including email, voicemail and in-person meetings with employees to provide a personal touch.
  3. Discuss benefits options as part of the overall compensation package.
