Tips from Human Resources

Published November 18, 2015 by lynn k scott

I did it. The worst part of Open Enrollment is behind me. We’re only 2.5 weeks past when we should have submitted the forms for our 12/1 effective date.

Here are few tips I would tell ALL employees:

1) TURN IN YOUR FORMS ON TIME!!!
2) Open the packet when you receive it – even if you think you’re keeping everything the same!
3) Please don’t say, “I was busy”, when HR calls to find out where your forms are.
4) I know it’s confusing, but if there are 3 forms, put your address on them all! It’s ok to if HR has to complete 1 or 2 addresses, but 100+ is time-consuming.
5) When changing carriers, everyone must be submitted together. When you are late, you hold up everyone! No one gets insurance on time; including your boss!
6) ASK FOR HELP when you are confused or don’t understand the forms. I smashed my crystal ball and can’t predict the future anymore. You have to be a tad proactive.
7) SIGN THE FORMS!!!! With the changing of the laws, signatures are required. Yes, yes, you’re waiving coverage. Read the first three words again; SIGN THE FORMS!!!
8) When your HR person/staff has a glazed over look in their eye(s), make sure they are adequately supplied with coffee (and not from the Evil Empire aka Starbux)!
