How It Works

It’s like an automated benchmarking analysis summarized for you. Scores take into account all plan variables compared to similar employers by industry, region and size as well as factors like premium splitting.

“We do a lot of recruiting so it’s very helpful to understand whether our benefits really are as good as we believe they are. [The Bar Score] helps us to understand how we compare with and stack up to other companies’ benefits offerings. Every year, we’re making changes due to reviewing our score and where we find we can make the most impact.”
