Our comprehensive reporting allows you to engage with your employees about their benefit plan in a meaningful way—both to their, and your, advantage.

“It’s been our pleasure to be working with Grayden Biffart and his staff at IGL Benefit Consultants for the last few years. Initially Grayden has reviewed our coverage with Chamber of Commerce Group Insurance Plan, recommended a couple of slight changes more tailored to our present as well as our future needs, and implemented them seamlessly. We also asked for different quotes on different products and received detailed analysis and recommendations for each without the high pressure approach marked by others. He has not only met our expectations but exceeded them. Grayden and his staff provide ongoing consultation and service, they have been very approachable, friendly and professional, answer my questions promptly and patiently. I can confidently recommend IGL Benefit Consultants to anyone looking for professional, trustworthy service with personal approach."
A properly structured employee benefit plan has been proven to improve recruitment and retention of highly valued employees, and significantly enhance employee health and wellness, leading to greater productivity, engagement, and morale—all of which inspires loyalty.
Employee Recruitment & Retention
According to the 2015 Sanofi Canada Healthcare Survey, 83% of respondent employees in BC stated they would not move to a job that did not include health benefits. So why not create an environment that demonstrates your commitment to your employees? This gives your company its best opportunity to hang on to its biggest asset—its people.
“Benefits are a way to reward and support employees and we know employees appreciate them”—Respondent, 2015 Sanofi Canada Healthcare Survey. Showing that you care about your employees’ well-being is a natural way to increase their loyalty and get their best performance in return.
Employee Health and Well-being
If your employees have solid health insurance plans in place, there is a higher likelihood that they will have regular checkups and take preventative medical steps, which leads to better health outcomes and decreased absenteeism.
We all know healthy employees are more productive. What better way to ensure the health of your employees than to give them the necessary tools to look after their health and wellness in an affordable and sustainable manner? Besides, supporting the health and well-being of your employees and their families sends a great message…you care.
Even small companies can afford comprehensive health and dental benefits. Employer-paid premiums are not only tax-deductible, but are also not a taxable benefit to the employee. An employee benefit plan could cost as little as 3% of your payroll.
