AVON, CONNECTICUT, USA (July 25, 2006)-According to Eastbridge Consulting Group�s seventh annual U.S. Worksite Study, employee benefit brokers again claimed the largest percentage of worksite sales in 2005 of any single producer segment. This is the third year in a row for this segment to increase its share of total sales. The following chart shows the share of sales for each segment:
“In addition to seeing their share of sales increase, the employee benefit broker segment saw a 21 percent increase in total sales from 2004 to 2005,� says Bonnie Brazzell, vice president, Eastbridge. Most other segments remained fairly stable.
�We are seeing more sales from those brokers for whom worksite is a secondary line than from those who concentrate on worksite,� comments Gil Lowerre, president of Eastbridge. �In 2005, those who focus on worksite wrote 47 percent of the sales while non-worksite producers wrote 53 percent.�
