NASHVILLE, TN – September 9, 2021 – Mployer Advisor, the leading independent platform for employers to research, review and evaluate insurance brokers, is pleased to announce the South Carolina-based recipients of its inaugural “Top Employee Benefits Consultant Awards” for 2021. Mployer Advisor’s Top Employee Benefits Consultant Award Program evaluates brokers based on industry experience, company size, online ratings and reviews and recognizes esteemed brokers that demonstrate market-leading competencies and a proven track record of success among employers, insurance providers and peers. Our list recognizes consultants who primarily work with mid-to-large sized employers, as well as brokers who work with small businesses.  

“Who an employer chooses as their insurance broker has significantly more impact on the cost and quality of their benefit plan than who they chose as their insurance carrier,” said Brian Freeman of Mployer Advisor. “We are proud to honor this group of insurance consultants who have demonstrated a wide range of experience, as well as positive employer feedback on service and quality. The industry has been dependent on referrals and existing relationships instead of data-driven outcomes for too long. With Mployer Advisor, we celebrate this distinguished group of brokers and consultants.” 

The state of South Carolina is a competitive job market in the U.S. Southeast, employing nearly 3 million people with a slightly lower unemployment rate than the rest of the country. Offering industry-leading, competitive employee benefits is a critical factor in hiring and engaging top talent for employers in South Carolina. Finding and partnering with a highly rated insurance consultant is imperative to retaining talent in any market.
