Complimentary 1095-C Offering From GuideSpark Helps All U.S. Organizations Deliver Critical Workforce Communications

Available Now, GuideSpark's Content Educates Employees on New Tax Form Required for 2015 Reporting, Reducing Burden on Internal HR and Finance Teams

MENLO PARK, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 2, 2015) -  GuideSpark, the leader in workforce communications, today announced the availability of a new, complimentary video solution designed to help employers educate their employees on the IRS Form 1095-C mandated by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Hearing of the volume of requests that are coming in to HR, finance and management teams from their employees about the new tax form, GuideSpark decided to ease their challenges by making introductory communications content available to any U.S. organization, free of charge. 

GuideSpark's Ammiel Kamon, senior vice president, Product and Marketing, explained, "Many companies will be ill-prepared for the flurry of last-minute questions from employees about Form 1095-C. Given this, GuideSpark created content to enable any organization to take a proactive and engaging approach to educating their teams on this mandated tax form. We're excited to help HR professionals and their workforces, across the board, by opening up our platform."

The impetus for GuideSpark's unique complimentary offer is straightforward. This upcoming tax season, employers with more than 50 full-time equivalent employees must prove that they offer health insurance coverage to their full-time employees and their eligible dependents, and have to report their offering via the Form 1095-C. These forms must be sent to all employees eligible for coverage, and employees will use appropriate information from the Form 1095-C to file their 2015 taxes. As most employees may be unaware of the form and why it is needed, companies can expect to face a slew of questions when the forms are released.

To introduce its custom workforce communications solutions, GuideSpark is offering the introductory 1095-C video content on a complimentary basis to companies across all industries and sizes. The 1095-C video content can be accessed here.

Organizations can also elect to have the 1095-C content customized to reflect their unique company culture, voice and brand for a fee. GuideSpark's custom communications solutions -- available on a wide range of important workplace topics -- also feature detailed analytics that measure reach and effectiveness.
