Facchina Selects Benefitfocus to Support Benefits Enrollment and ACA Compliance

Employee benefits solutions provider to build a better enrollment experience for construction employees

Charleston, S.C. – March 5, 2015 – Benefitfocus, Inc. (NASDAQ: BNFT), a leading provider of cloud-based benefits software solutions, announced today that Facchina Construction Group has selected BENEFITFOCUS® Marketplace and the BENEFITFOCUS® Benefits Service Center to help streamline benefits administration and enrollment for its multi-lingual workforce.

Facchina has been a respected provider of heavy highway, concrete frames, site development and commercial building services in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area and south Florida for nearly 30 years. In 2014, the company was acquired by Empresas ICA, S.A.B. de C.V. (BMV:ICA) (NYSE:ICA), becoming a U.S. anchor for the largest infrastructure and construction company in Mexico. Landmark projects for Facchina include the 11th Street Bridge reconstruction project and the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center in Washington D.C., and the New World Symphony Campus Expansion and American Airlines Arena in Florida.

Facchina was looking to replace its paper-based benefits tracking process with an automated system aimed at improving accuracy and efficiency, while also capturing life events that occur beyond open enrollment.

“Our HR goals include improving our customer service to our field employees as well as providing them multiple ways of enrolling, accessing and learning about their benefits in both English and Spanish,” said Teresa Beckta, human resource manager for Facchina. “Benefitfocus is going to help us meet and exceed those goals and will enable us to improve efficiencies and the lives of our employees.”

In addition to providing an intuitive enrollment platform, Benefitfocus will also serve as an extension to Facchina’s HR team – responding to employees’ benefits questions throughout the year and during its open enrollment period in October. The Benefits Service Center provides Benefitfocus customers with a resource of highly-trained benefits specialists who can help companies manage periods of intensified employee inquiries.

“Understanding benefit options can be complicated, especially if English is a second language. So, it’s really important to have both the user interface and personal service that can help employees understand their options and make the right choice for themselves and their families,” said Benefitfocus President and CEO Shawn Jenkins. “Benefitfocus is so excited to have Facchina as a customer and to help their multi-lingual workforce get the most out of their benefits.”
