 2. User Guide — Evaluating Your Benefits in 2020

3. Reporting

Keep a pulse on the progress of your employees throughout open enrollment season with our Open Enrollment Status Report. By running this report, you can see which employees have completed the process, which employees have started but not finished the process, and which employees have yet to begin the process. 
 

4. readyConnect

The readyConnect panel was introduced in our September release and curates content specific to how your organization uses Workforce Ready. So, when going through Open Enrollment, you’ll find links to a plethora of tools and resources relating to Open Enrollment. For example, there may be links to self-guided training in My Learning to complete or bite-size five-minute videos to watch. 

One quick tip on the panel: 
If you aren’t seeing the panel, you’ll want to make sure you have the Benefits Manager role assigned to your security profile. Simply go to Company Settings>Profiles/Policies>Roles and select the Benefits Manager role.
 

5. My Learning

My Learning is a great tool to utilize during your organization’s Open Enrollment period. As mentioned above, links to My Learning training that focus on Open Enrollment may be available through readyConnect, but there is one My Learning session you don’t want to miss — the HR Q&A session! Sessions happen once a month throughout the year with HR subject matter experts. There’s no set agenda for these sessions, so come with your questions ready. These Q&A sessions are a great way to get your questions answered fast with people who know what it’s like to be in your shoes. To access My Learning: Log in to Workforce Ready and navigate to My Info>Help>My Learning.

And that’s it —our list of the top five Workforce Ready open enrollment resources. Remember, when it comes to the technical side of open enrollment, you can always utilize Kronos Global Support (KGS). KGS has a dedicated support staff member who has in-depth knowledge of the open enrollment process in order to help solve your technical issues as efficiently as possible. Also make sure to check out our Benefits Glossary of Terms, which gives you definitions and common acronyms relating to open enrollment. Make sure you’re signed in to the Community to view!
