With 33% of employees unengaged at work and 51% actively searching for a new job, the race to recruit and retain talent continues across U.S. workplaces. As a result, organizations are turning to their HR leaders to attract the best and brightest through better benefits programs.

Under the direction of Businessolver president and CEO Jon Shanahan, the benefits technology provider has established itself as an industry leader that’s helping organizations nationwide tackle this effort thanks to solutions like the first-of-its-kind MyChoice Recommendation Engine. Top employers, from Sephora to national dining chain Bob Evans, have turned to Businessolver’s technology to provide a more engaging, personalized benefits experience to their workforces.

A former HR professional with experience at IBM, among others, Jon was frustrated with the state of solutions on the market. He wanted to develop a service that met all the needs of the modern benefits administrator, leading to the start of Businessolver in 1998. Nearly two decades later, Businessolver consistently drives year-over-year growth, employs nearly 600 people, and has offices in Des Moines, Denver, Charlotte and Chicago, with plans to continue geographic expansion.
