“The team at Burnham Benefits has been a true strategic partner to Tustin Unified School District. Their unbiased approach with insurance carriers and vendors has helped the district maximize cost savings while still providing first in class benefits to our employees. We have set realistic long term benefit goals with engaged involvement from our bargaining units. I have also appreciated how Burnham challenges us to think outside the box with all our health and welfare benefit programs.”

"We have had Burnham as our benefits broker for over 10 years and we cannot say enough good things about them. Debra is a true benefits partner and always goes out of her way to help with our unique needs. When we have a compliance question, Burnham's knowledge and expertise has been critical in helping us to make the right choices. We strive to offer our employees creative benefit options that will best meet their needs and Debra and the Burnham team have come alongside to put together the best options possible."

We are delighted with Burnham Benefits and look forward to continuing this mutually beneficial relationship."

Marcelo Yelin, Human Resources Manager, Edelbrock LLC


Burnham Benefits
“Burnham has gone above and beyond with our open enrollment events. They are there on-site to do presentations and answer questions, and they have become an extension of my HR department. My Burnham team has really taken the burden off our heavy lifting and made our lives much easier. Because of the partnership, support, competency, and the value of the products that they bring, we have saved the company money and been able to offer our employees better benefits.”

Lisa Moxley, Human Resources Director, Community Health Services, Inc.


Burnham Benefits
“I'm so glad that Brenda and Burnham run interference for us in this arena (health care reform). There is so much to know and then it changes almost daily!”

Suzan Attaway, Inland Empire United Way


Burnham Benefits
“In my many years as an Account Manager working with clients and their brokers, I have never met a firm as thorough and dedicated as my Burnham team. They are not afraid to take the reins and mix things up. But, in the same respect, they carefully listen and go in the direction which will best suit their clients. They do extraordinary research on carriers and the collaboration with the systems which administer these benefits. They are the type of broker that follows through on their promises and gets better results than expected. I would recommend Burnham to any client regardless of their location because I have seen the efficient, quality work they do. Most importantly, they do more than just amazing research and work. They build long lasting relationships. Burnham spends the extra time to get to know their clients and their benefit account managers. They work diligently with both sides of the business to ensure the best quality and price are given to their clients. They are truly wonderful to work with.”

Katie Heinz, ADP


Burnham Benefits
“I don't worry if we have the right line of coverage, the right plan design, the right communications, or the right employee education in place – I know that Melanie is managing this, is analyzing everything closely each month, and providing any updates or helpful education we can use on a monthly basis.”

Joanne Ziegler


Burnham Benefits
“I have found these benchmarking studies to be very beneficial in helping us to stay abreast of marketplace and industry trends. They provide a very comprehensive, customized and professional analysis of marketplace trends. We rely very heavily on these benchmarking studies to establish strategies that enable us to stay competitive and cost-effective in the design of our employee health and welfare plans.”

Jim Haddad, VP Human Resources, Americas, Agility


Burnham Benefits
“We have been incredibly pleased with the performance of both Burnham and Doug. He is consistently our “go to” guy when dealing with matters of insurance for our portfolio companies: KSL Management Operations, KSL Capital Partners, the KSL Property Group (currently six properties covering around 4,500 employees), ClubCorp Clubs, Squaw Valley, Western Athletic Clubs, etc… Burnham is the company and Doug is the person we go to with every acquisition we make in order to have the process of benefits change and comparisons go as smoothly as possible. They were invaluable in our recent acquisition of Montelucia which had the shortest timeline we have worked with to date.”

Ed Eynon, VP Human Relations, KSL Resorts


Burnham Benefits
“We have received superior benefits consulting and servicing, and we attribute our excellent plan selections to Burnham's longstanding carrier relationships, knowledge and strong negotiating skills. We consider ourselves fortunate to have this team working on our behalf.”

Executive Director of HR, Risk Management and Training Development, Long Beach Transit


Burnham Benefits
“I was hired for the specific purpose of extracting a growing organization out of a PEO. Enter: Ann Stawicki. One of the first boxes on the list to check off was to secure a skilled broker who could partner with me on a project that was both novel (for me) and that came with a hard deadline. Ann focused on the benefits programs and ensured that we were ACA-compliant, and that all our programs intersected successfully in order for us to pull out of the PEO without disrupting the business. Quite frankly, without Ann’s expert guidance and willingness to roll up her sleeves and help (from coming out to meet with employees during open enrollment to dropping off a Labor Law poster at a store for me when I was stretched too thin), I don’t know that we could have pulled this off on the timeline desired by the business owners. In addition to what Ann brings to the table in terms of her deep knowledge of employee benefits and her professional connections, Ann is personable, kind, caring, and a joy to be around. I’ve been working in human resources for almost three decades now, and I’ve worked with a number of brokers over the years. When you find one like Ann, you stick. In my job, I receive frequent inquiries from brokers, and my answer is always the same – we’re not thinking about changing our broker relationship, thanks.”

Leslie Bennett, Director of Human Resources & Administration, Healthy Spot
