We are redefining how businesses view employee benefits. Employee benefits are an investment in the resources that make businesses run and should be treated as such. Communicating the benefits you offer will help you realize the most from your investment.


Vision as an employee benefit, whether offered as an employer-paid or as a voluntary benefit, is one of the most affordable and oftentimes overlooked benefits available.


Bearence Management Group offers a wide variety of options when it comes to the evaluation of vision benefit providers, funding options for vision coverage and communications available to assist employees to receive the most benefit for their money.
