In recent years, the alternative benefits trend has grown in popularity because employees find value in receiving benefits that support their lifestyle choices. Examples of alternative benefits include pet insurance and vacation savings programs. Trest is highly knowledgeable about the vast universe of alternative benefit options that employers may offer their employees either as a supplement to or in lieu of other benefit offerings. Trest can locate providers of virtually any benefit that comes to mind. We also work with providers to create non-typical benefits that employees may find beneficial and explore ways to make those benefits tax-favored.
