Maybe it’s working with a group of people who cares passionately about helping our clients get the right coverage for the right price. On the group side, it’s about helping the company meet their business goals, better coverage for employees at a lower cost for employers (by helping employers see that they CAN control both their cost and the quality of care for employees).
Maybe it’s working with a nationally known person who is on the bleeding edge of employee benefits and is constantly thinking 2 – 5 years ahead at the industry to make sure whatever a business does today will set them up for success tomorrow. Who’s written an Amazon best seller on the topic and cares passionately about business owners, what they go through, and having the ability to lift some of the burden off their shoulders.
Finally, working in a professional office where work matters more than personality. Drama is avoided through good process, and where positive, fun loving people work.
