If the pandemic has taught us anything (apart from the importance of washing our hands), it’s how vital digital services are to both business and personal communication. Now more than ever, we are getting creative with how we interact both in person and online.

As the Alberta relaunch strategy continues and we begin transitioning to a new reality we too want our customers to have the tools they need for a stress-free experience.

Your day-to-day operations might look a little different now, but ensuring your employees are taken care of is still a priority. We have you covered with digital tools that do the heavy lifting for you, from start to finish.

More and more businesses are changing the way their employees work—remotely from home, with different hours and varying degrees of interaction. Whatever your new reality is—the way your employees enrol for benefits should be be different too.  

We have the tools to make it easier and faster for your employees to enrol and manage their benefit plan.

DIGITAL ENROLMENT FOR YOUR EMPLOYEES

Our new Member Self Enrolment platform is

  • paperless and contactless: you won’t have to spend time completing an application form and getting it signed because everything is done online;
  • faster: employee enrolments are received instantly, meaning your employees can access their benefits sooner.
  • efficient: our online process is error-free and guides employees through each step, so you can spend time focusing on other things.

It has never been more important to reduce paper-heavy onboarding and in person processes for employees. Member Self Enrolment allows you to stay safe while reducing inefficiencies.
