MetLife has launched its enhanced online Open Enrollment Toolbox, to help employers and brokers develop new strategies for upcoming enrollment season.

MetLife worked with Benz Communications to create several new resources on the new open enrollment toolbox. These include practical guides for employers and brokers on how to simplify benefits, easy ways to make enrollment more effective, trends to watch, and how to get started with social media.

The MetLife Open Enrollment Toolbox is a free resource designed to help make the upcoming open enrollment season more successful for every employer, regardless of current enrollment strategies and participation levels.”

Jennifer Benz, founder and CEO of Benz Communications, said: “It is a big challenge for employers to keep up and make sure their communication remains relevant and effective.MetLife’s Open Enrollment Toolbox will put very tactical real-world tips and communication best practices in the hands of employers and brokers. The Toolbox will help employers and brokers ensure their open enrollment and ongoing benefits communication is successful.”
