Compensation & Benefits Manager, Kirkwood Community College
Cedar Rapids, Iowa
We’ve worked with Perspective since 2002. Kirkwood has a complex mix of employees and Perspective understands our unique position. They are experts in the public sector, and they stay on top of what’s happening in the state.
Perspective provides so many resources. Our face-to-face meetings for strategy and annual review are always helpful. They guide us so we’re compliant when it comes to administering our benefits. During an RFP they evaluate our data, analyze plans, compile quotes and make recommendations. It’s nice to have a consultant who can focus on our “why”.
Perspective goes above and beyond with a high level of service!

Perspective has been a valuable advocate on our behalf. They worked with us to develop our overall, long term benefit strategy. Their insight guided us from a fully insured to a self-funded medical plan, which has had positive results for the organization and our employees. Perspective analyzed alternatives and ensured our needs were met by the best and most competitive vendors.
Our team trusts Perspective. From plan management to compliance questions, they respond quickly with the guidance we need to make informed decisions.
Perspective works toward the resolution that best suits our needs.

We started working with Perspective in 2015 when we were considering a move to a self-funded plan. Perspective helped us through the self-funded learning curve and helped us build our fund balance.
Perspective’s management has allowed us to expand our benefits offerings and to stabilize premium. Fund balance management is the key to our program’s success. As we’ve built our fund balance, we’ve been able to add an EAP and a wellness program.
Perspective has a wealth of knowledge in working with school districts and understands common hurdles. They make RFPs so easy by managing the whole process. They’re a good liaison between us and our vendors.
It’s a pleasure to work with the Perspective Team. We always walk away happy to have talked with them. Over the years insurance has gotten so complicated, but we don’t have to worry about being the benefits experts – we have Perspective.
I trust the knowledge Perspective brings.
