WISPA Partners with UNITEL to Provide Group Employee Benefits for WISPA Members

St. Cloud, FL, March 29, 2021 – WISPA and UNITEL have embarked on a new partnership to provide group employee benefits exclusively to WISPA members. 
Through UNITEL, the new collaboration offers group life/AD&D, short-term disability, long-term disability, dental (options for spouse/family), and vision (options for spouse/family).  With a minimum of three enrolled employees, members can provide benefits for their teams, easily choosing between a pre-built range of options; or customizing a plan for larger companies to match or improve current offerings.  Plans feature preferred pricing, 2-year rate locks, and guaranteed issue for most options. 
“If you are like many of our members, employee benefits play an integral part in attracting and retaining the very best employees,” said Claude Aiken, President and CEO of WISPA.  But offering employee benefits can be challenging, especially for smaller companies that watch every penny to help their companies deliver the latest high-speed Internet solutions to customers.  “Keeping costs low is key, and the UNITEL offering achieves this through substantial premium savings on their products,” added Aiken. 
“We allow companies with as few as three employees to get the protection they want,” said Ryan Keeley, CWCA, and Vice President of UNITEL.  “Not only does this make for a better workplace and happier employees, the one-stop-shop ease that UNITEL provides means owners can focus on what they do best – delivering broadband – instead of aimlessly shopping around for the best coverage.” 
UNITEL has long-been active in the WISP community and is a WISPA vendor member.  Its offering allows an important leg up on the competition, and presents a cost-effective perk to attract and keep talent in today’s tight labor market.
