Perfect Sandwich, Perfect Benefit Plan?
The peanut butter and jelly sandwich may be the simplest, but greatest sandwich in history. Kids love ‘em, and adults (or at least myself) love to sneak them. The PB&J is a reliable favorite. Especially, my son, who once said when learning numbers, that he could eat 100 of them.
The reason I bring up the great sandwich is that there are two newer companies to the benefit scene, Peanut Butter and Jellyvision. These two new companies are bringing new ideas to the benefit world that are targeted at millennials, but meet the needs of multiple generations.
Peanut Butter is one of a few companies offering a new benefit in student loan reimbursement. We’re seeing many employers interested in offering this new benefit as a retention tool. The reimbursement program can be set up at the level of reimbursement that’s affordable to your company and for the amount of years that you need to help retain your top young talent.
Jellyvision is a great communication tool, providing interactive, decision making support for open enrollment or continuing benefit education throughout the year. We’ve had great success with this technology from introducing Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), to offering new voluntary benefits, to providing financial education on 401K plans. The feedback we’ve received from the employees has also been fantastic.
Peanut Butter and Jellyvision are great company names, mainly because they remind me of the perfect sandwich – the PB&J. But unlike the traditional sandwich, these two companies are just a small piece of the many great companies that are innovating the benefits world.
