We have partnered with Advantage Benefits Group since the Company's inception. Advantage does an excellent job as a 'full service employee benefits agent' providing us with value based/cost effective employee benefit solutions. They also do an outstanding job in the area of customer service - in fact, their staff refuses to be uninvolved when it comes to making absolutely certain that our benefit plans deliver the value expected. Without question, Advantage Benefits continues to exceed our expectations
We have relied on Advantage Benefits Group for support of our employees healthcare plans for quite some time. They have been extremely helpful in providing expert plan design guidance and assisting in all aspects of the vendor selection and negotiation processes. They continue to support us on an ongoing basis by providing periodic analyses of our plan performance and keeping us informed on the latest benefit trends.
Partnering with Advantage Benefits Group has been good for The Bouma Corporation. We found that we do not have an Agent for health care, but rather, a Team of people dedicated to finding solutions. The folks at Advantage Benefits Group support each other very well which allows them to be flexible and adjust their schedules to the needs of their clients.
Advantage Benefits Group started our health care renewal process by holding a series of Focus Group meetings with our employees. These meetings provided some valuable information, and they allowed Advantage Benefits an opportunity to develop a relationship with our employees. Some great ideas were offered, and a solution was developed together. We made some significant changes to our health care plan offerings and added an HSA option.
These changes required a significant communication effort. An aggressive meeting schedule, over several days, in multiple cities, at varying times, was required to complete the task, and Advantage Benefits Group was there for every meeting. Because Advantage Benefits was involved in every step of the process, many employees felt comfortable calling them directly to discuss which health plan would be best for them. They were and are an extension of the HR department. Beyond that, they are just nice people!
