Open Enrollment Season: Help Employees Learn About Commuter Benefits
It’s officially autumn, and the change of the season brings warm colors, cozy clothes, and “pumpkin spice” everything. It also brings the opportunity for companies to kick off their open enrollment, allowing employees to choose or update their workplace benefits.
For calendar year benefit plans starting January 1, open enrollment often takes place in November. Now is the perfect time to remind employees of their pre-tax or subsidized commuter benefits they can take advantage of.
Here are some tips to increase your enrollment numbers for commuter benefits. Did you know companies that have increased their enrollment participation by 25% are eligible to apply for a goDCgo Employer Ambassador Award Program? Contact the goDCgo team to learn more.
