Benz Communications invites benefits professionals and thought leaders who want to participate in the Insights from Industry Leaders series to contact Heather Baptista, Heather.Baptista@benzcommunications.com.
"Our commitment to investing in thought leadership over the past 10 years inspired us to celebrate our first decade with an interview series that captures benefits thought leaders' professional journey, and their perspectives on what's next in the industry. We hope their shared insights will jump-start a broader conversation about what's possible for our industry and all those it serves," said co-founder and Chief Experience Officer Isabelle Englund-Geiger.
In 2006, with a vision for empowering employer efforts to positively impact their employees' lives, co-founders Jennifer Benz and Isabelle Englund-Geiger created Benz Communications, a boutique benefits communication firm. Since then, Benz Communications has evolved into a 28-person, employee-focused, results-driven marketing firm focused on helping large employers inspire their employees to improve their health, their finances and their futures with inspired benefits communications.
During these 10 years, Benz Communications, which is certified by the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) since 2012, has garnered numerous accolades, including ranking on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America, and listing on San Francisco Business Times' "100 Fastest-Growing Companies in the Bay Area" and "Top 100 Women-Owned Businesses in the Bay Area" for the past four years. Additionally, Benz Communications has been recognized for its client work with awards from Employee Benefit News (i-COMM Award), the International Academy of Visual Arts, Hermes Creative Awards, the International Association of Business Communicators and the Profit Sharing Council of America.
"The employee benefits industry touches the health and financial security of nearly every American -- and millions of people all around the world. While every employer may not be able to provide the richest programs, all have the resources to get their employees fully engaged in the benefits they provide. If all employees were fully engaged with their health and financial benefits, people would be stronger, our companies and industry would be stronger, and our communities and countries would be stronger," said Jen. "We believe this in our bones. This belief fuels our passion to make a difference and our commitment to continue to push boundaries," Jen concluded.
