The market opportunity of the medium-sized employer market (defined as those with between 100-999 employees) is significant, with medium businesses employing 22% of all employees in the U.S., around 80% of which are currently offering voluntary products to their employees. In addition, close to half are planning to offer a new voluntary benefit or move some benefit to voluntary.
Eastbridge’s Voluntary and the Mid-Size Case Market Spotlight™ Report aggregates data from key perspectives of the broker, carrier, employer, and employee to offer an in-depth analysis of the mid-size case market. The study found that the factors within the midmarket segment that employers consider in selecting a carrier vary. While all medium-sized employers have ease of administration in their top-five factors, employers with 100-499 employees have factors such as “carrier help with enrollment” while employees with 500-999 employees have factors like “carrier reputation for quality and service” and “quality of enrollment and communications materials.”
