Voluntary sales totaled $6.644 billion in 2013, up 4.3 percent over the previous year’s results, according to Eastbridge Consulting Group’s annual U.S. Worksite/Voluntary Sales Report.
“Annually, we recognize those companies that led the industry in voluntary sales growth,” says Gil Lowerre, president of Eastbridge. “This year among large companies ($30+ million in voluntary sales), Lincoln Financial Group was the fastest growing company based on voluntary sales.”
All companies participating in Eastbridge’s annual U.S. Worksite/Voluntary Sales Report are eligible to win the Voluntary Sales Growth Leader recognition. To make the list for consideration, a company must have exceeded the growth rate of the industry as a whole for each of the last three years and lead in sales growth for the current year.
“Eastbridge would like to congratulate Lincoln for a job well done,” adds Lowerre. “It’s not easy in today’s market to beat the industry averages in any year, but to achieve this for three consecutive years is indeed an accomplishment. Lincoln had an outstanding sales increase of almost 48 percent for 2013 and 19 percent and 14 percent in 2012 and 2011 respectively.”
