Online Training for Benefits Professionals

Lorman Educational Services offers a variety of online training courses for benefits professionals that can help improve their skills and career.

Online Training for Benefits Professionals

The management of employee benefits is a subsection within the human resource function. For smaller organizations with less than 50 employees, the function is usually handled by the HR professionals.

For bigger firms with hundreds of employees, the process can become too complicated to be handled by general HR practitioners. Big companies employ benefits professionals that have received training and experience of managing the benefits offered by organizations to their employees.

Employee benefits include policies like group health insurance, disability income protection, retirement benefits, child daycare, training and tuition reimbursement, paid sick leaves, paid vacations and flexible or alternate work arrangements.

Employee Benefits Training for Professionals

As businesses get bigger and hire more employees their need for professionals that are trained in employee benefits also increases. Currently, employee benefits professionals earn an average salary of $48,000 in the US and most professionals earn between $44,000 and $53,000 per annum. As the demand continues to increase for highly trained professionals we expect the salaries to increase gradually in the coming years.

Working on employee benefits can be a highly rewarding career, especially if you are a people’s person and like to help people. Some of the key skills required for this profession are communication, employee engagement, knowledge of medical & health insurance and data management.

A degree in HR can be helpful in getting a job as an employee benefits professional. However a degree is costly both in terms of finances and time involved. A training course and certificate in employee benefits is a faster and cheaper route to starting your career in employee benefits management.
