Astronaut, golfer, hockey player, surfer…I wish! No chance at the first, mediocre, at best, for the rest. But having fun.
In real life I am a Principal at Pointbreak Consulting Group. At Pointbreak we help organizations Unlock the Strategic and Economic Potential in their Employee Benefit Programs. We do this by using the TrueValue Benefits Advantage™.
You are likely saying, sounds fancy, but what does it mean?
Once upon a time a benefit program provided Dental Care, Extended Health Care and Life Insurance to employees. However, today’s employee (Boomer, Gen X, Millennial, Gen Z, Returning Retiree, cultural diversity, gender diversity, family diversity) is not yesterday’s worker.
People have a choice of where to work. They want to work somewhere that inspires them.
At Pointbreak, our mission is to drive employee connection by designing benefit programs that resonate and inspire.
This does not mean a benefits program needs to cost more.
Often, we find that employers are already providing a huge variety of benefits to their people – but they are not treating benefits as a comprehensive strategy. Rather they are a patchwork of stand-alone programs.
We help bring all of your programs together to create that great employee experience. Once the full cost is identified, we can redeploy the costs, or even reduce the costs and have a much better employee connection.
So, if you want a benefit plan that integrates flexibility, retirement savings, health spending accounts, EAP, fitness initiatives, recognition, financial education, disability, personal spending account, time-off, plus dozens of other ideas, and cost management, we can help.
I have been around for a while - 30 years of experience in the benefits industry, including Pointbreak for 14 years. I have consulted to large, medium and small companies in all business sectors. Previous corporate roles include Senior Vice President Health and Benefits Practice Leader.
