The Difference Between a “Status Quo” Insurance Broker and a Next-Generation Benefits Adviser
Delivering healthcare to your employees is a growing business challenge. Not only do annual premiums rise year-after-year, but more employees are making career decisions based on benefits plans, especially as pressure on consumer healthcare costs increase as well.
Your benefits plan is more than a simple line-item expense, and you do not have to sink into benefits quicksand with each rate increase.
With the right approach and the right insights, your benefits plan can be a strategic advantage that not only preserves your budget but also drives other key performance factors like employee retention and morale.
To realize this potential, however, you need an expert that does more than the “status quo” insurance broker. You need a next-generation benefits adviser.
I was recently invited to the Workplace Benefits Renaissance Conference in Atlantic City NJ to speak on one of the Increasing Sales Revenue track – Optimizing Enrollment & Improving Employee Engagement.
The whole panel – moderator Ron Kleiman and fellow panelists Rachel Pennington and Adam Maggio – gave diverse views about how to effectively deliver value to the employer, the employee and grow their business.
It was such a pleasure to sponsor Adam L Hamilton, PE, the new President and CEO of Southwest Research Institute. He spoke at the October 25 Healthcare Think Tank luncheon. We talked about the stars, the oceans and everything in between.. even healthcare!
We are incredibly fortunate to have SWI here is San Antonio!!
I recently had the pleasure to talk with Danielle D Dupree of The Introvert Mind about the importance of knowing your subject matter and how to leverage that as an introvert (are you surprised I am an introvert??). I managed to get in a few nuggets about how to use benefits effectively – for both the employer and the employee.
How do you deliver fast, round the clock access to a physician along with 24-hour advocacy to help your employees find a provider, understand an invoice or EOB and help find the best price for a prescription? By using a benefits app, of course!
