Recipe overview

Each year, employees have a limited window of time to select or make changes to their benefit plans—once that window closes, there are just a handful of events (i.e. qualifying life events) after which they’ll have the opportunity again.

This workflow recipe will create a Google Calendar event for each employee that is invited to benefits enrollment. The calendar event will be on the end date of the enrollment period. And although this all-day event will display the employee as 'free', that calendar event may just help drive more enrollment completions. "

With this Recipe, you can help ensure your employee doesn’t miss out. When an employee’s enrollment window opens, Rippling will automatically create a Google Calendar event as a reminder and placeholder on the date the election is due.

Want to limit this workflow to only open enrollments? As with all our workflow Recipes, you can customize this template to your exact needs, including when it should trigger, what the actions should be, who it should go to, and more.
