We understand that the most well-designed employee benefit arrangements will be under-utilized by employees, if the operation and value of the arrangements are not understood by the average employee. For this reason, a significant aspect of our practice includes preparing properly constructed employee communications that are critical to employees’ taking advantage of employer-sponsored employee benefit arrangements that not only have favorable tax consequences but also improve employees’ quality of life.
Trest has provided benefits communications services since the firm was established in 2011. Prior to the firm’s founding, our professionals provided benefits communication services to public and private plan sponsors for decades. In delivering employee benefits and compensation design and compliance advice, our professionals routinely prepare participant communications to explain the operation of the benefits arrangements in which they participate, including prompt updates for regulatory and design changes. We are uniquely qualified to design and implement the benefits communications strategy for your workforce, due to our expert knowledge of the rules.
We know that effective programs work best when benefits communication is employee-friendly. Employees need to be shown how their benefits work together, and they need guidance on how to make decisions that are best for them and their families. Communication materials should be top-notch, attractive and easy to understand. Well-produced materials help employees feel comfortable with the organization.
