Why It's Important
Client expectations have only gone up over the years. Your client is no longer looking for someone who can simply get a group plan underwritten, they want a knowledgeable consultant – a partner who can guide them through what can feel like an onslaught of change, regulation, and constant reporting.
Being ahead of the compliance curve can truly set you apart from your competitors, help you get your foot in a new door, and eliminate client attrition.
Emerson Reid provides an array of resources that keep you in the know, increase your visibility, and help you grow and retain business.
