Jellyvision Observes National Employee Benefits Day

Company Presents Unique and Entertaining Benefits Communication Techniques at IHC Forum

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Apr 2, 2012) - In observance of National Employee Benefits Day (NEBD), The Jellyvision Lab, creator of ALEX™, the virtual employee benefits counselor, acknowledges the hard -- and sometimes underappreciated -- work performed by the nation's corporate benefits teams and professional advisors. Give those folks a hug, please! In addition, Jellyvision is doing its part to eliminate benefits confusion through its "Ten Ways to Make Your Benefits Communication A LOT More Engaging" workshop. Presented by Jellyvision founder Harry Gottlieb, the workshop will take place on Friday, April 13, 2012 at the 2012 IHC FORUM East, in Atlanta, Georgia.

Employers concerned about the effects of benefits bewilderment among employees will gain solid insights from the IHC FORUM East workshop. Attendees will receive tips on how to dramatically improve benefits communication, leaving employees smarter about -- and more appreciative of -- their corporate benefits. Through simple exercises and real-world examples, Gottlieb will show participants how to excite new hires and banish confusion and apathy from open enrollment.

"Benefits communication doesn't have to be a total snore-fest," Gottlieb says. "Believe it or not, you can make figuring out what medical plan to get, or how much to save into your 401(k), both interesting and easy."

National Employee Benefits Day was created in 2004 by the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans (IFEBP), and is celebrated each year on April 2. IFEBP is a nonprofit organization dedicated to being a leading objective and independent global source of employee benefits, compensation and financial literacy education and information.

An innovator in the area of interactive conversation, Gottlieb founded Jellyvision as a video game studio in 1989 and has since expanded into marketing and corporate communications with The Jellyvision Lab, which makes learning and decision-making delightful for organizations. In 2009, employee benefits caught his eye and the Jellyvision Virtual Benefits Counselor was born.

ALEX's blend of humor, intelligence and benefits know-how offered a dynamic and highly personalized experience, and companies quickly adopted the new approach. Three years later, ALEX is available to workers from a variety of industries including services, manufacturing, transportation, education, health care and retail. To date, 89 percent of surveyed employees say they better understand and appreciate their benefits thanks to engaging with ALEX.
