Tap collective knowledge to develop a benefits plan
As you develop your new benefits plan, you need a dedicated site where stakeholders and experts can review your drafts and provide their input. Create a SharePoint communication site to connect you and your team to the content, information, and apps you rely on.
Previous benefits plans can be a great resource when you’re creating a new plan. Post your previous plans to your SharePoint library, and use them as the basis for a new plan. When versioning is enabled in your SharePoint library, you can store, track, and restore documents whenever they change. Libraries can track both major versions and minor versions.
When your company stores its documents in SharePoint or OneDrive, you can locate what your team is working on by using Delve. You can easily search for other documents a team member created by clicking that person’s name or picture.
You can quickly find experts and resources on insurance plans, relevant legislation, and other possible benefits by searching in topic-related groups in your company’s Yammer group. Yammer allows you to share information with colleagues across teams. You can post questions to a Yammer group, and instantly tap into the expertise of everyone in the group.
Helly Hansen is known for its innovative blend of technology and design to produce high-performance outdoor gear. However, its business communications and collaboration capabilities had lagged behind and employees were relying on aging, unreliable email and telephony systems. The small IT staff divided its limited time between maintenance of the company’s forty applications and making sure the outdated email systems were operational–leaving it little time to focus on higher value initiatives. To revitalize its IT capabilities, Helly Hansen adopted Microsoft Office 365, licensing the E4 plan for all of its employees. Helly Hansen improved communications, accelerated business processes, and transformed its travel culture, resulting in reduced travel costs by 10 to 15 percent.
