What are Flex Benefits

Do you offer group insurance benefits to employees? Even though that vaults you to the top tier of quality employers, it still seems impossible to please all employees. One-size plans do not always satisfy everyone’s needs.

Flex benefit plans allow your employees to customize their coverage. You set the budget, selection of plan options, and employees do the rest. They choose what works best for them at that time, with options to change coverage in the future, so they can always match their needs. This type of plan design can help attract younger employees, retain older ones, and grow your business!

Flex plans can help you maximize your benefit dollars while employees maximize their satisfaction, bringing the most value to your organization.

Happy Anniversary Janet!

Janet is in her fifth year at Connolly Group, our first employee to be found via Linkedin. We are so happy to have her as a part of our Administrative team and to quarterback our Individual Life administration.

 

Some interesting facts about Janet:

-         She is a former banker, having spent more than 20 years working in her native England

-         She was introduced to PEI via her brother who immigrated to PEI in the mid-1980’s. Her and husband Gordon regularly visited PEI for summer vacations over the years.

-         On one vacation, she cried most of the way home on the plane and that sealed their decision to move to PEI.

-         She has some great sayings….“that is a noddy dog”, “she doesn’t pull me up on things”,

-         Immigrated to Canada PEI in 2007 and is now a Canadian Citizen

Janet is a key person in our business and we love her professionalism, attention to detail and warm and friendly personality. So happy to have her on our team.

hi-hearing impairment pin

Here's Steve Connolly with Peter Benstead from Audiology holding the hi pin. Steve has a hearing loss and has found it hard in the past to communicate to people in a crowd or in a room with background noise that he is hearing impaired. Steve created this visual indicator to help people with a hearing loss represent that message with the pin. If you have a hearing impairment or know someone who does getting a pin would be a great idea. You can get your hi- hearing impairment pin at either PEI Audiology or Connolly Group.
