If you’re looking for a broker that can effectively handle your employee benefits and HR needs, you don’t need to look any further than Ashton Benefits. Great HR solutions are essential for the well-being of any business, but great benefits for your employees make positions at your company even more attractive to potential new hires. Getting both in one comprehensive package from a broker you can trust is an incredible asset for businesses of any size.

Not every business needs all the same services, though, and you don’t want to end up overpaying for additional services that aren’t relevant to you. That’s why it’s important to understand each of the service packages we offer and which services are included in them.

In this article, we’ll further outline why an employee benefits broker matters for your business and review each of our platforms to help you determine which one makes the most sense for you.

What makes an employee benefits broker worthwhile?

Working with an employee benefits broker does more than just make your company a better place to work. They offer a variety of different services that can be significantly valuable to your business, including:

  • Compliance consulting: Brokers can help advise you how to stay compliant with legal regulations related to benefits, like the Affordable Care Act.
  • Cost control: Brokers can help you identify ways to reduce premiums, find opportunities for potential cost savings, and negotiate with insurance providers to get a good deal.
  • Employee assistance: They can help educate employees about their options and resolve any questions related to their benefits.

Different brokers have access to different options and providers for employee benefits, and not all brokers will offer the services listed here in the same way or at the same scale.

Ashton Silver and Gold

Ashton Benefits platforms scale to the size and needs of your business, and the first two we’ll cover here are Silver and Gold.

Ashton Silver is the go-to package for a new business. It’s more lightweight than our other options, but provides you with the essentials to handle the evolving workforce needs of a growing company. In this place, we offer benefits and 401k, the assistance of a compliance team, a suite of powerful HR tools, and full-service support to resolve any concerns or issues you may have.

Ashton Gold is the next step up for a business that’s grown into a larger, medium-sized company. You’ll have an easier time managing a higher head count with online onboarding for new employees, property and casualty coverage, risk management consulting, and an online benefits portal, in addition to everything offered in our Silver platform.

Ashton Platinum and PEO

Ashton Platinum is built to handle a large-scale company, with all of the additional needs that come with it. With this package, you’ll have access to an HRIS system which expands dramatically upon the benefits portal offered in our Gold platform. You’ll have one centralized system to handle benefits, onboarding, payroll, time attendance, and more.

The Ashton PEO platform is meant to handle the needs of startups or other companies operating with limited resources. This package allows you to outsource your HR and payroll duties to us so that you can divert your internal resources to where they’re most critically needed.
