Voluntary Benefit Adviser of the Year Award
The 2012 Voluntary Benefit Adviser of the Year award recognizes outstanding service to group benefit plan sponsors by their broker or adviser in the field of voluntary benefits. It seeks to honor not just sales performance, but other factors that determine advisers' true value to their clients as trusted advisers.
The award is presented to the nominee who has demonstrated a consistent pattern of innovation and achievement in sales, consulting, and/or leadership, as well as overall contributions to the profession.
Among the more specific things we're looking for:
- Business growth, expressed in annual revenue or number of clients served.
- Performance against client expectations how well the adviser helped the client meet its objectives.
- Impact on group members' health, satisfaction, and financial security.
We're also looking for innovation and vision in presenting the products and services best suited to meeting employers' objectives.
The winner of the Voluntary Benefit Adviser of the Year award will receive an Apple Store gift card valued at $1,000 and up to $750 in travel expenses to attend the 2012 Workplace Benefits Transition conference in Chicago, Dec. 4-6, to receive the award. Additionally, the award winner will be profiled in the December issue of the magazine.
