Briefly describe this entry’s communications objectives and how it met those objectives (up to 200 words):

Saving for your dream retirement is not necessarily an area of financial strength for many people. Too often, meeting the financial demands of today means delaying or diminishing the savings we want for tomorrow. In an effort to encourage non-participating District of Columbia employees to enroll in their 457(b) Deferred Compensation Plan, ICMA-RC created the “Saving for Your Dream Retirement” video. The video is designed to inspire and motivate non-participating employees to enroll by showing them their peers’ retirement successes by participating in the plan. The video introduces D.C. employees at differing career stages, including early/mid-career and those who are nearing or in retirement, showing viewers the plan’s benefits at all career stages and the importance of enrolling early and steadily increasing contributions. As a whole, the video educates and raises awareness for employees who may be neglecting their retirement savings or not maximizing the plan’s benefits. Postponing saving for retirement can have detrimental long-term effects and sacrifice the retired life people envision. This video encourages employees to alter that reality. It has been well received with favorable feedback from viewers.
