Employee Benefits

Choosing an Employee Benefits Broker

One of the most effective ways to retain and attract the best employee talent is to offer a competitive employee benefits program. A well implemented benefits package will have long-lasting improvements to employee morale, new employee recruitment, and overall employee retention. 


A CORE Employee Benefits program will traditionally include:


There are many important items for employers to consider when offering an employee benefits program:


  • What benefits should we offer to our employees?

  • How much will each benefit cost the business and employees?

  • What type of benefits are employers in my industry offering?

  • Is my contribution strategy competitive for a business my size?

  • Do my employees value the benefit package we offer to them?

  • Is my benefits package compliant with ERISA, DOL, and ACA?


In addition, there are important factors to consider when choosing your employee benefits insurance broker:


  • Will my broker be presenting all insurance carrier options available to my business during renewal or just a few that compensate them the best?

  • Has a 60-90 day review been established to prepare for your benefits renewal?

  • Will my broker be participating in benefit open enrollment, presenting, and educating my employees, or leaving that responsibility with me?

  • Is my broker keeping me up-to-date and compliant with ERISA, DOL, and all guidelines under the Affordable Care Act?

  • Most importantly, will my broker be an advocate for my HR team and employees who need assistance with difficult benefits and claims issues?
