Group presentations, what’s the point?
In the first of our two-part blog on group presentations, we delve into the benefits of group presentations! Be sure to keep an eye out for the next one later this week!
Group presentations are used across many different industries to widely varying audiences, but they all share a common goal - to effectively deliver information. They provide a great opportunity to reach large audiences via an interactive platform.
This makes group presentations an ideal way to communicate with your staff.
Although staff receive paperwork about their benefits when they join the company, how many actually read it and could tell you exactly what benefits package they have? You might offer the best employee benefits in the world, but what’s the point if your staff don’t know about them?
Why not send an email?
Staff often get hundreds of emails a day, you don’t want information on employee benefits to be just another email lost in the pile. Even for those that do pick up the email and read it, the chance that they will be inspired enough to do anything about it is fairly low.
Bringing it to life
Presentations are the perfect way to bring dull or meaningless blocks of text to life, not only through the use of on-screen graphics and illustrations but by the presenter providing real life, relatable examples.
One such example might be;
Workplace Pension - What is it?… How does it work?… How much will it cost?… How does it compare to other savings vehicles?… How does your future look?
In this instance, the relatable example may use a case study showing two people and the expected income in retirement that could be achieved by someone who makes pension contributions vs someone who doesn’t.
What a monthly contribution of say £50 might provide as income in retirement alongside your employer's contribution.
By the end of the presentation staff will;
- Leave with a better understanding of what is available and what each benefit means for them.
- Know who to speak to and where to access their benefits
- Continue discussions with their peers and are more likely to implement changes and increase overall engagement.
- Once staff have familiarised themselves with their benefits and where to find them, they will be more likely to place a higher value on them.
