Burnham Difference

The Burnham Difference

There are many insurance brokers, agencies and consultants that specialize in the field of employee benefits. It is often difficult to determine what makes one firm substantially different from another. Burnham Benefits is proud to stand head and shoulders above other employee benefits firms by providing the best-in-class services, resources and team that make us exceptional in the competitive California marketplace and beyond.

Here are five proof points that tell you our differences are real, tangible and driven by our passion for excellence in employee benefits.

  1. Exceptional retention rate.
    We have a 98% annual client retention rate. We think this speaks volumes.

  2. Service-driven.
    Burnham Benefits is a private, closely held, employee benefits consulting firm that is focused on client service, not quarterly earnings. We make every decision by asking ourselves one simple question: “How can we be the best?”

  3. Benefits experts.
    We consider ourselves not just insurance brokers, but employee benefits consultants. We take a consultative approach in helping clients solve their toughest employee benefits and human resource challenges. At Burnham, employee benefits concerns never have to compete with the concerns of the property and casualty insurance industry.

  4. Invested in resources.
    We have invested in comprehensive resources to support our clients’ needs in areas such as health care reform, wellness, competitive benchmarking, legal compliance, technology and group financial services. With these practice areas firmly in place, Burnham has become a leader in both strategic planning and operational execution.

  5. The best place to work – literally.
    We are the employer of choice. For three years in a row, Orange County, Calif.-based Burnham Benefits has been named the number one “Best Place to Work” by the Orange County Business Journal. This dedication to building a better workplace has allowed us to attract and retain exceptional talent, creating a stable firm and a culture of teamwork.
