Benefits Growth Network introduces comprehensive legislative expertise to their solutions program for employee benefits agencies.
Online PR News – 10-May-2010 – – St. Louis, MO – Benefits Growth Network, a consulting firm specializing in growth and implementation strategies for employee benefits agencies, today announced that they have selected Compliance Advisor to join their partnership solutions program, BGNAdvantage.
The BGNAdvantage program is a select group of service partners for BGN member agencies to use as solution providers for their clients. The services in the program are focused on the long-term reduction of costs, reduced claims and absenteeism, and increased employee engagement.
“Staying compliant is a challenge nearly every employer faces,” says Tony Sorrentino, Compliance Advisor Managing Editor. “For companies without in-house expertise, interpreting the massive volume of legislative changes and regulatory updates can be costly and time consuming for HR personnel.”
Compliance Advisor uses its regulatory expertise to provide a solution for these companies. They offer a set of tools written specifically for the business owner and HR professional. The Compliance Advisor suite includes an ongoing series of newsletters, bulletins, guides and webinars designed help businesses interpret, understand and take action on the changes in legislation which govern employment practices.
Benefits Growth Network sees compliance as one of the biggest challenges that employers face, and health care reform is now increasing that burden. The legislation is voluminous and wide-ranging, and it’s important to stay up-to-date on the latest interpretations for strict compliance planning.
“Bringing expertise to clients in the area of compliance is an important role for a benefits broker to fill. There are many areas of potential exposure, and we need to help businesses reduce those possible risks,” says Kevin Trokey, president of Benefits Growth Network.
