Latest report examines critical role of field support to deliver products and services to customers
The growth in work-from-home options is redefining what constitutes a field office, but strong carrier support for distribution networks and processes is more important than ever, according to Eastbridge’s 2021 Field Structure and Distribution of Voluntary Carriers Spotlight™ Report.
“Employers and brokers expect excellent products, administration and customer service from their voluntary partners, but none of those matter if the carrier’s distribution and field support isn’t able to support and deliver those products and services,” said Nick Rockwell, Eastbridge president.
The Field Structure and Distribution of Voluntary Carriers Spotlight™ Report surveys 23 voluntary carriers about the structures and positions they use to distribute, support sales and enrollment, and provide ongoing service to clients. The report provides carriers with a benchmark they can use to compare their own distribution structures against other carriers active in the voluntary market, and insight into changes and challenges they expect in the future.
