Here at Benefits Growth Network, we help employee benefits agencies build better businesses. We’re a group of thinkers and talkers who like to share our ideas. Through our blog, we are communicating those thoughts and hope that some of it will be helpful to you in building your business.
Our vision of the role agencies should be playing in the always-changing marketplace is that there really needs to be a shift in the way benefits agents & brokers work with their clients. It’s our job as these agents & brokers to drive that change and help educate our clients on the role we can, and should, be playing with them. This change depends on helping clients drive the success of their businesses, and in order to do that, we need to position HR to be a strategic driver within the business.
You can expect to see us talk about how to position your agency to support this transition, and how to communicate and implement these ideas.
We like to scan the horizon and look for trends in benefits, HR and general items related to running a benefits agency. Our goals are to identify, discuss, and eliminate the obstacles and challenges we face individually, and as an industry, which can get in the way of profitable growth.
While we are compelled to share many thoughts on many varied topics, a few that you can expect to see us regularly talk about will be:
• Health Care Reform
• Leadership & Management
• Sales Development
• Strategic HR & Benefits
We’re bringing up topics in order to open the floor for a discussion, and we’d like to hear what you have to say. Don’t be shy - just jump in and share your thoughts and ideas and questions in our comments section following each article. We’ll be keeping up with the comments, so you can be sure we’ll read it and respond.
