Arrow Benefits Group Launches Spanish Language Division

Petaluma, California (PRWEB) October 4, 2017

In a groundbreaking effort to service and provide clear and understandable health benefits information to Spanish speaking employees, Arrow Benefits Group has launched their Spanish Language Division to counter the lack of support, resources, and education in the Spanish speaking community. “We want to break the language and culture barriers. With a division specifically designed to educate, answer questions, and give guidance and resources regarding not only health insurance but employer benefits, we can break down the complexity and make insurance a more usable and valuable benefit,” says SLD Lead Rosario Avila. The employee benefits world can be confusing, and the added obstacle of information being provided in an unfamiliar language makes it much harder to understand and utilize. Even with literature provided in Spanish, the terminology is a language all its own. With their diverse understanding of the industry, and a dedicated team consisting of 6 benefit specialists and 2 HR support members that are not only fluent in Spanish and experienced in the benefits industry, but are also understanding of the culture, Arrow will bridge the gap in education and services to this large, highly valuable, and yet historically underserved demographic.

Local Benefits Group Distributes First $100,000 of AED Machine Donations to Community

Petaluma, California (PRWEB) August 16, 2017

As part of the Arrow Wellness Initiative to donate and distribute $100,000 in AED (Automated External Defibrillator) machines to their local business community, Riverfront Fitness is the first of many recipients vying to receive an AED device from Arrow Benefits Group. AED machines are an integral part of treating those suffering from sudden cardiac arrest in the few vital minutes before emergency medical crews arrive, dramatically increasing the survival rates of the victims of sudden cardiac arrest. Without these machines on hand, the survival rate is under 10%; immediate response with the use of CPR and AED increases sudden cardiac arrest survival rates by as much as 70%. “Having the AED gives both our clients and ourselves the reassurance and comfort of knowing that if a heart attack occurs while using the facility we have the proper equipment available to use until the Fire Department arrives. It brings us a sense of security and assurance that we are providing a lifesaving machine at our fitness facility. It means the value of a life,” says Amy Pontius, Manager at Riverfront Fitness. The AED device donations build on Arrow’s popular Wellness Initiative which provides free CPR and First Aid classes to clients and the community. If you would like to learn more and participate with your company in the procurement of one of the AED machines please contact Andrew McNeil at 707-992-3789 or

Newly Launched Arrow Umbrella Program Means Big Expansion for Local Benefits Company – Arrow Benefits Group Partners with Companies Across California

Petaluma, California (PRWEB) July 12, 2016

Arrow Benefits Group, the third largest HR/benefits company in the North Bay, has launched the “Arrow Umbrella Program,” offering experienced, dedicated brokers the opportunity to withstand competitive threats, expand client services, and provide a viable, guaranteed exit strategy and protection to brokers. The program, developed by founders Jordan Shields and Keith McNeil, includes numerous new partnerships that expand Arrow’s reach throughout California. The program facilitates the partnership with smaller brokers that often lack resources and are often highly vulnerable to changing market conditions. Shields and McNeil see this as an urgent need right now in the industry. McNeil says, “We wanted to go out to smaller firms and give them the opportunity to align themselves with the benefits of a larger organization, including exit solutions for retirement. What we’re doing is allowing the broker to still own their business and run it – keeping their integrity and legacy while safely transitioning their business for the future.”
