Virginia Chamber of Commerce
, two entities that have long served Virginia’s business and chamber community, have come together to form Virginia Benefits Alliance. The Alliance, along with CieloStar
, our selected technology and benefits administration company, and several insurance companies, are working collectively to fundamentally change the way employers across the Commonwealth offer benefits to active and retiree employee populations.
The Virginia Benefits Market is a true and viable alternative to a government sponsored and controlled marketplace, this collaborative seeks to deliver a market-based solution on behalf of Virginia’s entire business community.
To deliver a market-based solution for employee benefits and related human resource services to Virginia’s business community.
To be the employee benefit platform of choice for Virginia’s employers.
To avail businesses of all size the opportunity to efficiently and effectively provide employee benefits to their workforce and to equip businesses with the tools, resources, and means to comply with associated laws, regulations, and requirements.
Virginia Benefits has dual meaning. First, it says exactly what we are providing to employers and employees – benefits, specifically employee benefits.
The second, is that Virginia and its citizens benefit from the fact that we are providing a market-based solution to meet the needs of Virginia’s employers. It is primarily for this reason we choose the name. We thought it truly represented our rationale for embarking on the creation of a private insurance exchange.
Each dot depicts the local business community. Each connecting dash represents local chambers of commerce. When taken as a whole, the logo’s design represents the complete fabric of Virginia’s business community.
[PS: The colors have no significance other than we liked them!]
