Manufacturers face challenges in building benefits plans
Do you have the right strategy for your group health plan? Manufacturers face particular challenges when it comes to finding the right approach to building a sustainable benefits package.
Bernard Health has a decade of experience working with manufacturers, and we offer a suite of innovative products and services to help your employees make the best choices when it comes to healthcare.
Here are three areas of need manufacturers face when it comes to benefits. For more, download the free “Benefits Guide for Manufacturers.”
Limited access to computers
Because manufacturing employees are typically not office-based, keeping track of enrollments by multiple teams at multiple sites can be a truly frustrating process.
Bernard Health clients have access to BerniePortal, an online benefits platform that streamlines benefits administration and enrollment.
Minimal HR staff
Many small and mid-sized manufacturers often don’t have an HR department, and the team member responsible for payroll or office management can often find themselves responsible for a significant amount of compliance and regulatory work, too.
BerniePortal and our full-service approach to benefits reduces the administrative burden of HR.
For teams that need even more support, Bernard Health also offers BernieHR, on-demand HR consulting that can address the scope of HR needs at small businesses, including disciplinary issues, analytics, additional compliance services and compensation solutions.
Developing a cost-effective benefits strategy is key for most employers, but especially those in manufacturing. Bernard Health employs a variety of funding strategies to create sustainable benefit plans, but we find that a defined contribution approach to funding and optimized Health Savings Accounts to be the most cost-effective options for manufacturing companies.
