BerniePortal launched in 2008, but the story really starts with our sister company, Bernard Health, a Nashville-founded healthcare benefits brokerage. As brokers, our team had seen first-hand the benefits and HR challenges that small and medium-sized employers face.
These challenges are generally transactional or strategic. Transactional challenges, like payroll and onboarding, are best solved with software. But with the strategic challenges of healthcare benefits, software alone won’t get you the optimal results. That’s where an experienced advisor provides immense value.
BerniePortal is based on this insight. Our aim is to give employers the tools to solve transactional HR and benefits challenges with software, and strategic healthcare benefits problems with the expertise of an advisor. This approach gives employers the best of both worlds, yielding optimal outcomes for the organization and its employees.
