Highlighted Member Advocacy Experience

CASE STUDIES / MEMBER ADVOCACY

For one BeneService restaurant client with 500 employees, our CSAs logged over 32,000 minutes of activity from 450 calls over a 12-month period. At an average of 71 minutes per call, this translates to approximately 10 hours per week of member advocacy for this one client. That’s 10 hours per week the client’s HR department was free to focus on their regular responsibilities.
