Flimp Communications Launches Flimp 360
Digital employee communication and engagement provider Flimp announced
the launch of Flimp 360, an HR support tool that provides employees with year-round education on topics like open enrollment, company policies, onboarding, voluntary benefits education, and more.
Designed to assist with benefits communications, Flimp 360 provides HR departments with the following capabilities:
- Decision-support tools: HR professionals can use decision-support tools to help employee select their benefits. Employees can use the web-based Planselect tool to receive recommendations on what type of medical plan they should choose, based on personalized recommendations, while Flimp’s Benefitchoice tool uses an algorithm to provide recommendations and product information on voluntary benefits.
- Multi-channel benefits-communication methods: To ensure benefit messages resonate with employees, HR professionals can leverage digital postcards, benefit microsites, benefit guides, QR codes, and text messages from Flimp.
- A library of HR videos: Flimp 360 will come with a collection of more than 75 videos covering a variety of HR and benefits topics, available in English and Spanish. Additionally, Flimp offers several custom video options, including explainer videos that can be crafted around a specific brand or message.
- Tracking tools for engagement metrics: All of Flimp’s videos and digital postcards come with tracking, hosting, distribution options, and project management capabilities.
"Decision-support tools alone are not enough to educate and inspire employees to appreciate the full value of their benefits. More work is needed to empower employees to act, and HR teams don't have the luxury of time or the design skills required to create compelling benefits-education campaigns, so that's where Flimp 360 comes in,” Wayne Wall, CEO and founder of Flimp Communications.
