Buck receives 2022 Communicator Award of Distinction for retirement communications supporting Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City

NEW YORK, June 2, 2022 – Buck, an integrated HR, pensions, and employee benefits consulting, technology, and administration services firm, today announced that it received a Communicator Award of Distinction from the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts. Buck was selected for providing an exceptional communications solution for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City (Blue KC), an independent licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association and the largest not-for-profit health insurer in Missouri.

Buck received a Communicator Award of Distinction for design and print in the corporate communications category for work supporting Blue KC’s early retirement window (ERW). The goal of the campaign was to notify and educate eligible employees about the ERW so they could make timely and informed financial decisions.

“Retirement communications can be hard to decipher, and this award is a terrific recognition of the work done by our teams to deliver objective information so employees could make informed decisions within a set timeframe,” said Jonna Harris, Department Vice President, Human Resources, Blue KC. “This initiative encouraged almost half of eligible employees to take action, and we look forward to continuing to work with Buck to meet the evolving needs of our business and our people.”

“We’re honored to partner with Blue KC, and this award recognizes our shared commitment to employee wellbeing and helping individuals make important benefit decisions,” said Jill Spielberger, Buck’s Engagement Practice Leader. “Arming our clients with strategies and tools to help their employees make important decisions about their personal financial security is central to our team’s mission.»
