What motivated your organization to get involved with NAWBO?

My organization got involved with NAWBO because of their work with women initiatives in advancing woman owned businesses toward economic, political , and social achievement.

What does your company offer NAWBO members and why is this important to them?

At Aflac, we understand that running a small business is a 24/7 job. Staying on top of trends and insights in the changing health care benefits landscape can be overwhelming for many employers, but having valuable resources and information at their fingertips, such as those provided on the new Small Business Hub, can help put small-business owners' minds at ease.

The launch of the Small Business Hub resulted from the 2016 Small Business Happiness Report – both designed to serve as resources for small-business owners looking for insight to better support their employees and manage their business.

Created as a destination for employers, with a focus on small business, the newly designed Aflac Small Business Hub aggregates insights and resources small-business owners seek to help them with their benefits decisions. This includes references and tools to understand Health Care Reform legislation, the benefits of choosing the right insurance partner, how to retaintop talent, and more. The hub, available at aflac.com/smallbusiness, provides employers with important information they need in a manner that is engaging, quick to find and easy to digest all in one place provided by an industry expert.

What is the one best practice you've learned from working with businesses in your company that our members should know? 

The best practice that I have learned is having a consultative approach to businesses. To be a problem solver and to be able to offer solutions is important, but even more so is building a trusting relationship first so that there is a comfortable dialogue. That is how you build loyalty and long lasting business relationships.
