Employee Benefits

Innovating for the good of your business & employees.

With our team approach, we help clients build and maintain robust employee benefits programs to enhance employee productivity, retention and recruitment.

Our focus at Vizance is to create certainty in the uncertain world of employee benefits. It requires patient and creative professionals that have a watchful eye on cost, education, service, compliance, and wellness.

While other agencies tout market share and brand recognition, few, if any, will actually deliver an approach beyond the renewal that thoroughly takes a company’s unique needs into account. Our 5 step benefits process is designed to do just that.

Our Employee Benefits department takes a unique “team approach” in customizing the right program for each organization that we work with. Our desire very simply is to offer a fresh perspective and help our clients be successful.

By helping our clients build and maintain a robust program for their employee benefits, we are the conduit for achieving increased employee productivity, retention and recruitment. These are valuable tools for the success of any organization.
