Going For Benefits Gold: Pinnacle Partnership Expansion
Posted on Tuesday, August 3, 2021 by Businessolver Team
Watching the Olympics this week, I found myself thinking about the complexity that goes into every athlete’s ability to hone their craft.
We watch in awe as they swim faster, jump higher or throw farther and think, “I wish I could do that.” But in reality, there is so much going on behind the scenes, so much work, effort, thought, training, diet, and more that go into becoming an Olympian. It’s the way they manage their bodies and their lives EVERY day to reach that pinnacle goal of achieving a medal at the Olympics.
In some ways, we look to the partnerships and experiences on our platform in a similar way. To provide a best-in-class, “Olympic-esque” experience with our benefits technology, we must put in the training, the development, the integrations, and partner with the right organizations to make it happen.
Offering the highest-level supplemental benefits experience
When we created our Pinnacle Partnership program in 2019, it was with the same understanding. The Pinnacle Program was initially formed to ensure the highest-level supplemental benefits experience for employers and employees alike, making it easier to enroll and improving data exchange and management. To be invited into the Pinnacle Partnership Program, the carriers and vendors commit to a dedicated service model, a streamlined integration process, and the ability for employees to enroll in products from within Benefitsolver.
And now in 2021, we are so excited that the program is growing. not only with more voluntary benefit providers but with a new group of partners dedicated to total health and well-being.
The Pinnacle Program will now include solution partners, who provide health and well-being products and services. Solution partners offer services such as transparency, telemedicine, healthcare navigation, advocacy, wellness, hypertension, and diabetes management. Businessolver provides amplification of these services within the system helping employees activate their participation.
Leveraging voluntary benefits and solution providers are strategic ways for employers to round out their benefit programs to ensure the total well-being of their employees are fully covered. With this expansion, I’m thrilled that we can offer access to more services and products directly within the Benefitsolver ecosystem and connect employees with those benefits and programs thanks to our multi-channel and intelligent communication tools, like Sofia.
So, who are those partners? Take a look and then head over to our Pinnacle Partner page to learn more.
