Quickly engaging & onboarding new recruits in a complex industry

As the the fastest growing vision benefits company in the U.S., EyeMed knew effective onboarding and training of the providers who serve their 50 million+ members was critical to its success. EyeMed partnered with Sanger & Eby to create a communications solution that was efficient, engaging and effective.

Challenge

The insurance industry is competitive, incredibly complex and constantly-changing with extensive regulations and compliance guidelines. As EyeMed worked to expand its base of providers offering vision care, they needed a way to onboard new providers to promote retention and success while also communicating policy and process changes to existing providers.

The company was also finishing a branding update, so the Sanger & Eby team was tasked with designing a fresh, new communication solutions that adhered to EyeMed’s new brand guidelines.

Strategy

First, we created an onboarding welcome kit for new providers that were drop shipped immediately after contract signing. The kit included fun promotional items to complement informational pieces like a “new provider checklist” and cheat sheets for who to contact and when. We also created materials to highlight useful tools such as EyeMed’s provider portal.

Then, our team wrote the content for and designed interactive eLearning courses that lived on the provider portal. They were broken down by topic like Getting Started with EyeMed Systems, Working with Labs, Understanding Plans and Compliance. Since every EyeMed provider has a custom contract, they could take the eLearning courses that pertained to them as their schedule permitted.

Results

Our partnership resulted in onboarding materials that could be updated, prioritized and customized for whoever EyeMed is working with. The welcome kit is now a digestible tool for providers that addresses complex regulations, compliance information and benefits, promoting retention and provider satisfaction.

Our proposed design solutions, attention to detail and proactive response have kept each project on schedule and brand-right, saving EyeMed time and money.
