The Benefits Of A Comprehensive
Group Plan


Employees want more than just substantial wages. One of the best ways to attract top talent to your business is to offer a comprehensive benefits package. This often helps to increase employee satisfaction and decrease turnover rates.


When an employer provides people with the care they need, they are often happy, focused and less stressed. A benefits package and group plans offer various health-related benefits including dental care and mental wellness. By providing an employee benefit plan and ensuring your employees have access to the care they need, the business also benefits.


Plans with employee benefits BC help to increase morale and long-term loyalty to your business. By meeting their needs, as well as the needs of their spouse and family, you are able to make them feel like they are more than just a number and part of a caring collective. You want your employees to feel appreciated and extended health care plans can help do that.


The health of your employees and their spouse is your most important asset. While British Columbians, Albertans and Ontarians do have some protection under the government health care program, it simply isn’t enough. Provide your workers with coverage for death, long-term illness and accident-related emergencies with a compensation package and extended health care.

Our Employee Benefits Plan Services

At Shelter Bay, we’ve created a buying advantage for our clients through a group purchasing program. Our team of experienced brokers is committed to answering all of your questions regarding price and coverage. We are committed to providing the same rich employee benefit plan you currently have at a lower cost. Essentially, we want you to have the information and ability to put more of your insurance dollars towards the well-being of your employees, their spouse and families.

Small and medium-sized companies benefit from our volume buying program. With us, setting up a new employee plan or fixing an existing program has never been easier. Enjoy the benefits of bulk buying and leverage the purchasing power of many groups. You’ll have the same advantage and influence as a very large business with many employees.

The Rising Cost Of Benefit Plans Is Alarming.

A company with fewer than 50 employees means the insurance company will charge more to operate your benefit plan.

Target Loss Ratio (TLR) is an important pricing factor that tells you the administrative load on your benefit plan – the TLR can be as low as 65% for small groups.

A 65% TLR means there is 35% overhead to operate your plan … or $.65 per dollar goes to your staff as dental and extended health benefits and $.35 goes to program overhead.

Basically, as one small company, you pay ‘full retail price’ for your program.

We Buy A Large Volume At Lower Rates So You Save

Our buying program lowers the normal operating cost of a benefits plan. With our buying group, your TLR is 80% (20% operating cost). You get the same or better service, benefit levels and coverage.

With our volume buying program, the insurance carrier takes less margin on the larger group and everyone benefits. The savings are significant.

Compare With No Obligation To Change

Our group benefits advisors will review your existing plan with no obligation or expected commitment. We’ll either reinforce the advice you’re currently receiving and your diligence will be complete – or you may see that buying better will save your company a lot of money.

Same Benefit Levels – Lower Premiums.

Our employee benefits plan value proposition is this simple:

  • Experience – hundreds of employee benefit plans and growing.
  • Lower Price – with volume savings, up to 25% less for the same employee benefits plan.
  • Service – We have highly trained administrative staff to assist you with all questions.

Employee Benefits Consulting & Management Services:

  • Annual review of benefits relative to industry trends.
  • Reckless driving
  • Independent audit of your existing plan.
  • Contractual negotiation with insurers and tendering of group insurance contracts.
  • Cost containment strategies and alternative funding methods.
  • Employee educational sessions.
  • Plan administration support.

We Provide Companies With BC

Employee Benefits

We believe employees should have access to extended coverage, as government programs are often not enough to meet people’s needs. As an employer, you should provide each and every team member with the options for health coverage, dental coverage and any other benefits package. When your employees have peace of mind for themselves and their spouse and family member, they are more likely to be happy with their job. Essentially, take care of your workers and they will take care of you.

Get in touch with us today so we can provide you with more information on how your business can meet the needs of your employees with a comprehensive benefits package. We offer services in British Columbia, Ontario and Alberta.

Tom went above and beyond to get us the complete package that we needed for our own comfort but also commercial protection. No stone was left un-turned trying to find us the best combination of coverage. There were some tight timelines that all got achieved, but no compromise in any of our coverage.
