The Cincinnati Enquirer Names Cornerstone A Winner Of The Greater Cincinnati And Northern Kentucky Area 2018 Top Workplaces Award

For the fourth consecutive year, Cornerstone has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by The Cincinnati Enquirer.

The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”

Cornerstone is ranked number seven on the 2018 list, five spots up from our number 12 ranking in 2017.

“I’m proud of our employees and their commitment to our customers, our partners, and our business strategies,” Cornerstone President Jennifer Agnello said. “Identifying and capitalizing on opportunities to provide guidance, support, and executional excellence is what keeps Cornerstone on the forefront.”

“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy,” Claffey said. “It’s an achievement that organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”

Anthem’s GeoBlue Training Event in Worthington, OH | Register Now!

Join Anthem’s GeoBlue and Cornerstone for an in-person training to learn more about GeoBlue products, additional travel benefits and where this plan fits for your clients!

DATE: Wednesday, May 30

TIME: 1:30pm – 2:30pm

LOCATION: Anthem Office in Worthington Ohio

6740 North High Street | Worthington, OH 43085

GeoBlue offers 4 great plans that can fit your international traveler’s needs. These plans can help with short or long-term international travel and are available for under and over 65 clients! In addition, it can help groups with international employee travel and employee vacation benefits.

Watch this video and come learn more!

A few more reasons to sell GeoBlue plans…

  • This product is filed with DOI! Most travel policies are not filed with DOI and would not be covered by your E & O coverage.
  • Medical evacuation and repatriation benefits to the states. This is not covered as an emergency under your health plan. The average cost of medical evacuation to the states is about 25,000 to 100,000. Could be more for remote locations.
  • Plans that start at no deductible to large deductible at an affordable rate.
  • Turnaround time for the guaranteed issue products is immediate. Usually 72 hours for medically underwritten products.
  • GeoBlue concierge-level services will help 24/7 to find the closest hospital, arrange direct billing for international medical events and do medical monitoring.
  • Easy to use online tools for the members once enrolled. All claims are filed for you by approved hospital and doctors.
