The Importance of Hiring a Benefits Broker:
When it comes to hiring an employee benefits broker, companies traditionally have hired people they’re already familiar with. There’s logic to this—because of the complexity of the benefits marketplace and the need to trust your broker, it makes sense to hire someone you already have a relationship with. But just because you’re related to or friendly with someone doesn’t mean they’re the right broker for your business. This is a very significant expense for every business—only salary is a bigger line item—and smart business leaders will look for someone that can provide the most value to their business.
Why Most Benefits Brokers Hate RFPs – And Why Employers Should Love Them:
It’s been said in business that “where there’s mystery, there’s margin.” In other words, you can make a pretty good profit if your customer really doesn’t understand what he’s buying. Now, there’s nothing wrong with a benefits broker making a healthy margin, as long as there is demonstrable value and return on investment. Given the cost of benefits brokerage services – less than five percent of total benefits cost – it makes far more sense for employers to focus on value rather than cost.
The trouble is that most employers have little idea what value they are getting for their money. According to the Elevate Benefits Survey, 92 percent of employers have little idea how to objectively compare options and select the best broker for their firm. However, the right broker can make all the difference to your organization, so it is important that you choose wisely.
Select a Benefits Broker That Will Make Employees Love You:
A good broker will offer more than just bidding out your group’s business at renewal time. Your broker relationship should be about more than just enrolling members and quoting rates. The best brokers are trusted advisors that bring value year-round. They act as your trusted advisor, helping you to provide for your employees in a way that helps to grow the business.
What is the difference between an employee benefits broker, consultant and advisor?
There are three terms to describe the professionals that help your company with its benefits programs that have come to be used interchangeably in the market: Employee Benefits Broker, Employee Benefits Consultant, and Employee Benefits Advisor. Here is some insight into the similarities, and differences between these titles.
5 Reasons Broker RFPs Fail:
