Nava Benefits is on a mission to bring high-quality, affordable healthcare to all Americans, starting with the 49% who get insurance through their employer. Accomplishing this goal would be impossible if we accepted the status quo of benefits brokering. Rather, we have to jumpstart innovation in the benefits space, and then make sure it gets into the hands that need it.
We’ve been working closely with the HR community, both small and large employers, to identify the bottlenecks and challenges faced with the benefits exploration and buying process. Through our conversations with benefits decision-makers, we found a consistent theme: finding great benefits is incredibly overwhelming, time consuming, and frustrating. That’s because there’s no single place to find and compare benefits and providers.
Said differently, the employee benefits market has not made the offline to online transition yet. There is no Travelocity, Zillow, or Yelp for HR professionals. Instead, you’re left asking colleagues, posting questions to Slack groups, performing countless Google searches, or asking your broker. This current approach is hit or miss, and your broker’s expertise often prioritizes traditional legacy products.
Well, the expectations around work and benefits are changing fast, and now, more than ever, employers need to go the extra mile to take care of their employees — or risk losing out on talent. It’s time for benefits to catch up.
How Nava is solving benefits search
After months of deep research into the benefits buying process, we're excited to launch the Nava Benefits Search Engine, the first resource of its kind built with community in mind. By aggregating previously scattered vendor data and gathering reliable reviews from HR professionals, we built a convenient way to search and compare employee benefits and service providers that can’t be improperly influenced by sponsorships. The Nava Benefits Search Engine is a tool for HR professionals, by HR professionals, so hats off to you! Best of all, it’s completely free to use!
How it works
The Nava Benefits Search Engine empowers anyone involved in the benefits selection process to discover, compare, and get pricing for the industry’s most innovative employee benefits. You’ll stop wasting time in the benefits research spiral and start feeling confident about building a differentiated benefits program that fully supports your employees.
Nava’s responsive search bar allows you to explore 28 benefits categories and over 600 providers, the industry’s largest database. And it's not pay-to-play — in other words, vendors can't slip us some cash to rank higher, so you know you're getting the most reliable, objective reviews out there.
The search engine includes benchmarking peer data from thousands of US technology companies — so for the very first time, you'll be able to compare your offering against your peers'. Using our sort and filter features, you can see which benefits are offered by your industry peers and find vendors to meet your unique needs.
We’ve collected and processed over 7,000 vendor data points to paint a richer profile for each of the 600+ vendors featured in Nava Benefits Search Engine. Although vendors can’t pay-to-play, they can become “verified”, meaning they’ve opted in to validating and supplementing the information we have available for them.
One of the most exciting parts of the Nava Benefits Search Engine is the fact that it’s the industry’s first and largest community-driven effort exclusively centered on employee benefits. We’ve integrated review functionality directly into the product — so you don’t have to make benefits decisions on your own any longer. Not only can you access app store reviews to evaluate the employee experience, but you can also read real reviews by HR professionals like you and leave your own too.
Once you’re ready to learn more about a particular vendor, you can request a demo or pricing directly in our tool. Upon request, we’ll reach out to vendors on your behalf for the requested information and serve as your buffer until you’re ready to take the next step. You’ll get a quick and easy quote without being bombarded by sales emails. But don’t worry, there is no obligation to become a Nava client.
With the Nava Benefits Search Engine, it’s easier than ever to discover great benefits for your employees, which is at the heart of Nava’s offering to employers.
