West Des Moines, Iowa — Milliman has recognized Homesteaders Life Company for being among the top 20 Midwest Region companies of their “Best in Benefits” award program.

According to Milliman, “The Best in Benefits award recognizes employers who offer the best benefits plans relative to their peers.” Analyzing benefit plan designs, premiums and employer contributions provided via a benchmarking study, Milliman calculates the benefit value and cost of each company plan. Companies are ranked by a “lowest cost-highest benefit” metric to determine the Best in Benefits awards.

“Homesteaders has always focused on taking good care of our employees,” says Judy RalstonHansen, Executive VP-HR. “Our benefits program is part of a robust compensation package that is designed to help us attract and retain top talent to the organization, which ultimately benefits our funeral home customers, marketing partners and policy owners.” Homesteaders was also recently recognized as a Top Iowa Workplace, a distinction for which benefits, compensation and work-life balance figure prominently.

Milliman’s Best in Benefits program is conducted annually on employee benefits including medical, dental, life, voluntary benefits and leave policies. The Midwest Region survey included data from 343 companies representing 117,211 employees.

Funeral Homes are Struggling to Keep Their Doors Open

Ryan Thogmartin - August 13, 2017

This is a topic and conversation that does not get talked about or covered enough. We all want to put the blame on cremation and ignore the fact that many of the issues facing funeral homes aren't because families choose cremation but because of bad business decisions of many funeral directors who don't want to change or accept cremation.
