CHARLESTON, S.C., Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Benefitfocus, the nation's largest provider of healthcare and benefits technology, announced today that BENEFITFOCUS HR InTouch™ has been selected by Louisiana-Pacific Corporation (LP) as its cloud-based solution for online benefit enrollment, administration, employee communication and wellness education. As a premier supplier of high quality building materials with headquarters in Nashville and multiple locations across North America, LP is among a growing list of top manufacturing organizations that have joined the Benefitfocus Cloud.
By consolidating all benefit-related information in one place, the HR InTouch portal streamlines all processes from benefit enrollment to wellness promotion. With the portal's personalized communication and decision support tools, LP is able to deliver clear and consistent messaging about healthcare and benefits to a regionally dispersed population of more than 2,500 employees. Providing a more intuitive enrollment experience, HR InTouch was introduced to LP employees in December for their open enrollment and will be accessible year-round to manage new hires, life event changes, employee communication and wellness initiatives.
"We made the decision to implement HR InTouch after discovering how housing everything in a centralized, cloud-based portal would support our initiatives to educate our employees and their families, and at the same time streamline our current benefit administration processes," explained Tracey Sender, LP Director of Compensation and Benefits. "We're looking forward to improving employee engagement with the use of apps and educational resources incorporated within HR InTouch. Creating an enjoyable enrollment experience that can be accessed at any time by our employees will also help us drive participation in benefit and wellness programs."
As employees explore benefit options, the sophisticated data exchange capabilities of HR InTouch power numerous decision support tools like the Plan Shopping App, that allow them to view the most recent benefit plan data during enrollment. The Plan Shopping App gives employees a side-by-side comparison of the available benefit plans so employees select appropriate coverage and can estimate out-of-pocket costs. Leveraging the Benefitfocus Total Compensation App, LP combines benefit data along with payroll files and other perks they offer to provide a statement that conveys the financial commitment they make to their employees.
"We are proud to provide Louisiana-Pacific with a solution that is instrumental in fostering a positive enrollment experience for their employees," commented Benefitfocus President and CEO, Shawn Jenkins. "It's exciting to see how employers like LP are using the apps available on our Platform to communicate the true value of benefits and help their employees make the best decisions for both their physical and financial health. We are constantly investing in the extensibility of the Benefitfocus Cloud to continually deliver the best technology solutions to our clients."
