BENEFITFOCUS Platform to enhance Sloan’s benefits offerings and arm employees with new tools to support sound decision-making for their health care needs

Charleston, S.C. – May 19, 2016 – Benefitfocus, Inc. (NASDAQ: BNFT), a leading provider of cloud-based benefits management software, today announced that Sloan, the leader in commercial plumbing systems, has selected the BENEFITFOCUS® Marketplace to transform its enrollment process and bring mobile technology to its benefits management program. With a diverse workforce spanning four generations, multiple languages and varying degrees of technical proficiency, Sloan needed an easy-to-use platform that enables Sloan’s employees to manage their benefits directly and take a more active role in selecting the best benefits package to meet their individual needs.

“Once we made the decision to create a more innovative benefits management program, Benefitfocus was the obvious choice,” said Margie Rodino, Chief Talent Officer at Sloan. “We saw this as an opportunity to select a partner that cares as much about our employees as we do. We’re excited for Benefitfocus to become an extension of our HR department, engage our employees in their benefits elections and provide each employee with the tools they need to lead happier, healthier lives.”

Enabling a more engaging benefits management and enrollment experience for a diverse workforce

Benefitfocus’ easy, mobile-friendly interface along with seamless multi-language capability, are essential components to reaching Sloan’s diverse employee population. Sloan employees who currently rely on other family members to help them enroll in their benefits can now take a more active role in the process thanks to the platform’s powerful, consumer-like guided shopping experience and engaging educational videos, and the BENEFITFOCUS® Benefits Service Center.

Sloan plans to use BENEFITFOCUS® Video to better engage its workforce on their benefit options and help ensure they select the right benefits for their needs, especially since Sloan will offer additional voluntary benefits. As it continues to prioritize a more holistic approach to employee health and financial wellness, additional voluntary benefits from the Benefitstore by Benefitfocus will supplement the company’s current selection of health savings accounts (HSAs), accident and critical illness benefits.

“Creating change within an employee base of multiple generations and backgrounds is no easy feat,” said Shawn Jenkins, CEO of Benefitfocus. “However, Benefitfocus knows the value this can bring to the lives of the people we aim to serve. We’re very much looking forward to working with Sloan to bring the appropriate information, education and tools that support sound decision-making and help drive continued innovation in their organization.”
