One of only 11 Nashville providers to receive inaugural award

LBMC Employment Partners, a leading professional employer organization, HR outsourcing, payroll service bureau and benefits broker based in Nashville, TN, is pleased to announce it was named a Nashville Area Top Employee Benefits Consultant for 2021 by Mployer Advisor. The announcement comes a month after the firm’s key expansion into the national space by adding Cigna national plan to its PEO, complementing the established BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee plan. As benefit brokers, LBMC Employment Partners represents all major U.S. carriers, including Aetna, Humana, and United Healthcare.

“We are honored to be named to this prestigious list by Mployer Advisor, a leader in connecting employers and employees to great benefits,” said Sharon Powlus, President/CEO, LBMC Employment Partners. “To be recognized as one of only 11 brokers in the Nashville area is such a distinction, particularly given this is one of the most competitive job markets in the nation. This award is a testament to the hard work and outstanding client service of our team members.”

Mployer Advisor is the leading independent platform for employers to research, review and evaluate insurance brokers. The firm created its inaugural Top Employee Benefits Consultant Award Program this year, which evaluates brokers based on industry experience, company size, online ratings and reviews and recognizes those with a track record of success among employers, insurance providers and peers.
