Every firm will tell you their people are better. We can tell you why our people are better. Not only do our benefit specialists work on a non-commissioned basis – eliminating the possibility of sales pressure during enrollment – but they also participate in extensive recruitment, training and certification programs provided exclusively by Univers.
We invest heavily in these programs, resulting in outstanding experiences for our clients and their employees. Our benefit specialists gain access to the following professional development and benefit opportunities.
Core and Case-Specific Training
All Univers benefit specialists receive Core Curriculum training, which covers the Univers standards and approach to elevating benefits knowledge. Specialists also receive expert-led, case-specific training before each client case, including a thorough review of the client's benefit offerings.
Univers CertifiedSM Professional Designation
By establishing the first-ever professional certification program for benefit specialists, Univers has raised the industry standards for the practice of one-to-one enrollment. Specialists undergo intensive Web-based training and testing to achieve the Univers Certified designation, and re-certification is required every two years. The opportunity to become Univers Certified attracts the industry's top talent to the Univers team.
