Finding a Trusted Benefits Partner at Designer Brands

Benefits Technology that Supports Business Expansion


When a business begins to expand, the benefits technology it relies on should be able to support that expansion.

This was a challenge the benefits team at Designer Brands found themselves in as the organization was rapidly growing in 2015. The legacy technology they were operating with was falling short and as a team that strives to uphold their motto to provide exceptional service, support and solutions, it did not incorporate the necessary tools to carry out their values.


When Designer Brands implemented the Benefitfocus platform, helping their associates understand the benefits that were being offered became much easier.   

“Benefitfocus helped us communicate benefits in a way that made it easy for associates to understand how our benefits program supports their individual lives.” Sr. Benefits Specialist, Designer Brands
