- Owner of Quiksilver, Billabong, ROXY, DC Shoes, RVCA, Element and Von Zipper brands working with Nava to improve benefits offerings
- Healthcare cost savings, simplified administration key to attracting and retaining talent
NEW YORK, Sept. 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Nava Benefits, a modern employee benefits brokerage tackling the growing complexity of healthcare, today announced that Boardriders, a leading action sports and lifestyle company, has chosen Nava as its partner in delivering an expanded and simplified employee benefits platform. Using Nava technology and benefits innovation, Boardriders is expanding services to employees, simplifying benefits administration, and driving more value out of its benefits package.
Offering a competitive benefits package and improving the employee experience are essential for employers in light of rising healthcare costs, talent shortages, and new workplace trends such as "quiet quitting." Employers that solve these benefits challenges stand to improve recruitment and retention. Equally important, employers are looking for ways to simplify benefits administration and delegate tasks best completed by outside experts.
Boardriders - with well-known sports and active brands Quiksilver, Billabong, ROXY, DC Shoes, RVCA, Element and Von Zipper - faced these challenges when searching for a benefits broker. The company turned to Nava for a custom solution that met pressing needs within budget. Boardriders has begun implementing the Nava solution in time for open enrollment. Nava is delivering:
- 24/7 white glove concierge service to assist employees with their health benefits, care plans, and more
- Leave management administration to ensure a centralized management system and compliance with complex leave laws
- Human Resources services as an extension of Boardriders' HR team
"Our goals are to provide competitive benefits, give our employees options that meet their needs, and manage costs," said Lynette Jamison, Boardriders' Senior Director of Global Total Rewards, HR & Payroll. "We were looking for a partner who would not just give us options, but would look at our unique needs and design and implement something that made sense for our organization. That's what Nava has done for us."
"Boardriders is a great example of a leading brand taking a thoughtful approach to how it designs and offers a benefits package," said Bryan Davis, Nava National Practice Leader. "With Nava's ability to bring Fortune 500-level benefits, and with our focus on easy, modern solutions, Boardriders has put in place a model program that will go a long way toward drawing and keeping top talent."
