Our Philosophy

EmployerAdvocates is more than just a name – it’s a way of doing business. In a world where shareholder profits and new business revenues are often the core driving focus, EmployerAdvocates has placed its focus firmly upon proactively and objectively advocating for its clients. We believe profits and new business are simply the ancillary rewards that come from taking care of the client first.

GIVE WITH ZERO EXPECTATION OF RETURN. GIVE BECAUSE YOU WANT OTHERS TO SUCCEED. YOU WILL FIND SUCCESS AS A RESULT.

With much diligence and enthusiasm, we embrace every opportunity afforded to us to provide innovative solutions to each of our clients’ very diverse needs. We do not offer a “one size fits all” solution. Instead, we take the time to fully understand our clients’ goals, both short and long term, and then devise a strategic, custom solution.

We exercise creativity to pioneer progressive strategies and concepts with a core focus on always delivering our clients a measurable return on their investment. While we embrace and appreciate tried and true solutions, the sweet spot of EmployerAdvocates is creative problem solving and “outside the box” solutions. In the ever-changing landscape of this industry, we recognize that complacency eventually equates to irrelevancy.
