Charleston, South Carolina’s cloud-based benefits management platform provider Benefitfocus Inc. recently announced it received a silver award for excellence in the category of compensation and benefits advances from the Brandon Hall Group research organization.
Benefitfocus won two Best in Biz Awards 2016 in the health care and enterprise software categories, a distinction rendered by an independent panel of judges from well-known media, business, consumer and technology entities, Benefitfocus said in a news release. Criteria for the honors include the relative innovation of a company’s product, its problem-solving capability and its tangible results in the marketplace.
"We congratulate our Technology Award winners, and also thank them for leading the way in designing and utilizing technologies that empower organizations to enhance – and in some cases transform – their organizations," Brandon Hall Group Chief Operating Officer Rachel Cooke, who heads the awards program, said. "Our research shows that human capital management technology is a primary driver of innovation, and our award-winning organizations serve as models of success."
Offering ACA, cost control, benefits enrollment and administration, employee engagement tools, Benefitfocus helps firms meet their HR goals and make more informed decisions by simplifying the way companies and consumers price, enroll in and manage benefits.
