Helping Businesses Stay a Step Ahead

An attractive benefits program is vital for your recruiting and retention efforts, but it is also a significant expense.  To ensure you are providing a package that is both competitive and economical, you need to know how your offerings compare to those of other employers in your industry.  Benchmark data can provide valuable insights for evaluating your benefits package, helping you conform to or even set industry standards.

At Dwight Andrus Insurance, we understand the importance of making educated plan design changes, which is why we offer a variety of benchmark resources to help you balance cost control and plan value.

Our extensive Health Plan Design Benchmark Report compares data from over 50,000 plans nationwide, and breaks down data by your region, employer size, industry and plan type – so you can isolate what similar employers are doing in each area of your plan.
