Open Enrollement

It’s that time! Open Enrollment season is finally here and there’s nothing better than feeling like you are fully prepared for the whirlwind of the few weeks that are ahead of you. Between benefit vendor selections, preparation of your system to update dates and rates, the enrollment process, and reporting and carrier feeds, it can be a lot to stay on top of in such a short amount of time. To help make the process feel a little smoother, we’ve provided some of the top Open Enrollment resources that we think you will surely benefit from (pun intended).

Open Enrollment Preparation Essentials Guide

This new Open Enrollment guide will walk you through a checklist of essential items to review when preparing for the upcoming Open Enrollment season. The guide includes everything from the pre-enrollment configurations such as updating Benefit Profiles, Benefit Plans, and employee instructions to post-enrollment reporting. 

Open Enrollment Webinar

Want to review some best practices to help you prepare for Open Enrollment? Register for this webinar where we walk through those best practices for configuring your Benefit Profiles, updating your rates, testing your employee enrollment process, and learning about resources available to help guide you through the season. The live webinar will take place on September 13 at 2 p.m. ET. But don’t fret if you can’t make the live session — it will be available on-demand shortly after!

Seasonal Resource Center

Wondering where you can find many of your Open Enrollment resources all in one spot? Check out the new Seasonal Resource Center in the UKG® Kronos Community. In addition to the Open Enrollment Preparation Essentials guide and the webinar, you will find helpful knowledge articles and the Working Smarter Café podcast featuring The Experience Expert, where we discuss benefits trends for 2023. 


What could be better than resources you can access right in your UKG Ready solution? The Open Enrollment Tools readyConnect panel will help guide you to the essential resources to get you through Open Enrollment. You’ll find quick-bite videos to help you prepare for Open Enrollment as well as job aids and videos you can provide to your employees. 

Learning Opportunities

Through the Learning Center, you can access training courses to help you gain a better understanding of how Open Enrollment and other Benefits functionality work. Some highlights to explore include the Benefits Learning Journeys where you can find details on configuring your benefits settings. Additionally, check out the training called “Benefits — A New Year,” which focuses on the Open Enrollment process. You can access the Learning Center by logging in to UKG Ready and navigating to My Info> Help> Learning Center

And while these resources may not alleviate the potential influx of password reset requests from employees as they start to complete their enrollment, we do hope the resources will help provide a more seamless process in your Open Enrollment season.
