Our President's Council spent a solid hour this week discussing health, dental, and vision options based on the work you and we have been working on since late last fall. The group found the materials presented to be informative and helpful, so they specifically asked that I share with you their appreciation for all the work that has been put into this issues so far. They were appreciative of both the content, and the timing. In some years it has been early May before we could have that discussion, which is way too late in the cycle and so they wanted me to also express appreciation for having this on a much more helpful timeline to give ample opportunity to consider the options, and to make timely decisions.

In the almost 35 years I’ve been in Human Resources leadership positions – including stints with two Fortune 100 companies- I’ve never had the pleasure to work with a group of men and women like the ones at Advantage Benefits Group who so consistently meet and exceed our expectations in providing timely and effective guidance in the administration of our benefit plans. I heartily recommend them to any other organizations seeking to establish a more effective relationship with their benefits agents.
