It’s easy to see employee benefits as an obstacle, not an opportunity. There can be mountains of paperwork, complicated insurance jargon, and seemingly endless waiting on hold. At Buffer, we’re here to change the way you think about employee benefits.

We believe by investing in your employees you’re investing in the vision for your business. And that starts with a great benefits package. So, we’ve made it our mission to make employee benefits better, simpler, and more effective than ever.

Here’s 10 ways we’re making employee benefits better.

Easy Onboarding
We start our process with a hands-on approach. We’ll be there, in-person, to help you choose the best benefits package for your team and business. Plus, we’ll give you all the resources and tools you need to get off to a running start.
Comprehensive Coverage
You have enough on your plate, so you shouldn’t have to worry about going to multiple companies to piece together a benefits package. We’re your one-stop-shop for employer benefits, wellness, benefit administration, and retirement.
Online Enrollment & Management
What good are your benefits if you can’t easily access them? Our online platform is making it easier than ever for your employees to opt-in to their benefits package with an intuitive system and helpful tools. It’s a central hub you can access anytime, anywhere.
Dedicated Resources
Our services don’t stop once you select a benefits package. We provide HR consulting, tools for developing an employee handbook, and compliance resources. We’re with you every step of the way to make sure you’re getting the most value for your business and your employees.
It’s a Relationship, Not a Transaction
At Buffer, we are your brokers for employee benefits. Unlike a PEO (Professional Employer Organization), we offer individual service to the businesses we represent. This means licensed experts giving you face-to-face time and advocating for your employees.
Specific Service
Speaking of advocating for your employees, this applies to how we choose the healthcare plans your business offers. PEOs have limited options from just one carrier, and there are usually hidden fees as well. We can hand-pick plans that make sense for your business, financial situation, and employee needs. You’ll know you’re getting a personalized plan that will support your business and employees.
More Flexibility
Because we’re independent brokers, you’ll have access to more than 17 insurance companies and their products, offering variety in your selection. With a PEO, you would only have access to one choice of carrier. Plus, with a PEO, you’ll most likely have to find a new healthcare provider if you need to make changes. With Buffer, we’re not limiting your options—in fact, we’re expanding them.
Advocating For You
At Buffer, the only people we serve are our clients—not healthcare networks. Because we’re independent brokers, you can rest easy knowing that we advocate for you, your employees, and your bottom line. We’ll help you reduce costs, while finding the best benefits package available.
Ensure Your Vision
While employee benefits are first and foremost about people, we also understand that you have a business to run and a vision you’re seeking to make a reality. By providing employee benefits that drive engagement and add value to your company, we’re helping to ensure your vision for the future and support your team in the process.
A People-First Approach

At our core, our business is about people, not profits. We know there’s a human being behind every meeting, call, and interaction—and we’re here to serve. That means we’re authentic, transparent, and responsive in every way, offering a hands-on approach to benefits you won’t find anywhere else. Ready to switch?
