EBN recognizes the industry’s top innovators who are digitally impacting the HR and benefits space, driving technological change and helping industry professionals work smarter. EBN honors Dave and the SHRM Broker Finder team for filling a growing industry void and radically improving and strengthening the partnerships between employers and brokers. Brokers are able to rapidly market their solutions and C-Suites and HR Professionals can understand the value they should expect from their broker.
“We’re thrilled to be recognized for creating the first searchable, curated database connecting employers, benefits brokers and other HR solution providers,” Dave Churchill explained. “It’s amazing to think that in a multi-trillion dollar and fragmented industry like ours, that this type of platform has not existed until now. We’re excited to quickly scale this platform for all of the best-in-class solutions in the HR/benefits space.”
SHRM Broker Finder launched in early 2018 and has welcomed 800+ broker members and recorded 12,000 unique visitors with more than 8,000 broker searches. SHRM Broker Finder’s Advisor Arsenal™ helps brokers and consultants find solutions for their clients and offers specialized business building tools and resources, such as quote engines, sales training and technology. The marketplace reaches over 2,000 employee benefits brokers daily and has over 300 searchable HR Solution provider profiles.
“SHRM’s partnership with Elevate Benefits helps members as they go through the process of researching and selecting a benefits broker or consultant that fits their employee benefits needs,” said Jessica Perry, SHRM senior vice president of media. “According to a survey, nearly twenty-five percent will consider or re-consider benefits broker services over the next twelve months. However, employers don’t always know where to begin. That is where we come in – we are here to assist them through the process.”
SHRM Broker Finder recently test drove the platform to thousands of members at the 2018 SHRM Annual Convention & Exposition Chicago, IL and will be attending NAHU’s Annual Convention in Kansas City, MO starting June 23.
