In life most of us like to stick out in a crowd. We like to be known as individuals and valued for our unique identities. When it comes to employee benefits; however most of us realize the value the group brings and as such we are happy to be considered one of the many.
The value a group benefits plan brings to businesses is often as equally valued by the employees as it is by the employer
A solid group benefits plan can reduce costs, meet current socio-political requirements such as the Affordable Care Act (ACA) aide in recruitment and staff retention. Prospect and current employees often rank a solid group benefits plan as one of the factors as to why they have either chosen a specific job or decide to remain in the one they currently have. In fact, many see a well-developed benefits package as a more important factor in their career than even salary.
Companies that recognize the value of a well-developed benefits program have a competitive advantage over their counterparts not only when it comes to recruiting and retaining employees. This advantage manifests itself in many ways including employee morale thus trickling down to their customer base who then get to experience the benefits of a happy employee who also values their job.

Fortunately, many employers are adding supplemental benefit opportunities to help fill these gaps at a cost-effective rate for all involved.
As a growing trend businesses are often times now offering a set of supplemental coverage options that employees can sign up for based on their own perceived needs. Such plans are intended to offer benefit opportunities to employees but at no added cost to the business. Because employees have the ability to opt in or out, they are in many cases referred to as voluntary benefits.

Compliance. Everyone hates it, few understand it, and most think it should be classified as a new dirty word.
With the level of regulations surrounding healthcare, insurance, and employment it is no wonder why the word “compliance” alone strikes fear into so many.
Ensuring one’s company meets the ever growing burden of regulations however is critical to everyday operations in most businesses. For some companies, the burden is so great that an individual or even a team is needed in-house to make sure a business has all its bases covered.
For many small to mid-size businesses; however, hiring someone to manage compliance on a full-time basis is not economically feasible or desired.
