myKlovr: A Short Primer for Benefits Brokers
By Thomas Broderick
As a benefits broker, you give one or more clients expert advice on how to provide the best benefits at a cost affordable to employees, answer employers and employees’ questions, and stay up to date with the latest laws and regulations. As a result, you need to keep on top of the rapidly evolving benefits landscape to succeed at your job.
In this brief article, we at myKlovr want to introduce you to our employee and member benefit, one that appeals to mid-career professionals with middle and high school-aged children. We feel confident that by the time you finish reading, you will recognize myKlovr’s value and want to offer it to your clients.
What Is myKlovr?
MyKlovr answers a question many high school students have: ‘How do I get into my dream college?’ Unfortunately, high schools across the country lack proper college counseling resources, and the best private college admissions counselors charge as much as some lawyers. Many families go into the process blind, and without help, prospective college students cannot attend the right school.
To help families in need, myKlovr developed a first-of-its-kind virtual college admissions counseling service that combines seven key functions:
- A student portfolio where users can curate their best academic and extracurricular work
- Personalized goal recommendations (e.g., improve a grade, join a club) that align to the user’s top college picks
- Users can modify these recommendations, also known as an action plan, at any time
- A progress dashboard that visualizes users’ accomplishments
- An advanced college finder with multiple filters
- A support network wherein users can invite trusted adults (e.g., teachers, parents) to offer advice, keep up to date with progress, and confirm milestones
- Specialized courses that teach users how to create college-friendly social media accounts
- Financial education modules that provide valuable information on how to pay and save for college
Users receive all of these services the moment they sign up for myKlovr. Once they input personal and academic information, they can begin improving their chances of college admissions success.
How Does Offering myKlovr Differ From Other Benefits?
You’ve likely come across dozens of voluntary benefits that appeal not only to employees but also their families (e.g., public transportation passes, discounts on entertainment, gym memberships, etc.). myKlovr stands apart in one crucial aspect – cost.
Our low cost not only attracts new users but can help your clients, as well. Unlike with other, more expensive traditional and voluntary benefits, your clients can offer myKlovr at any time of year. Without the need for an open enrollment period, new employees in our target demographic can sign up on their first day of work. Your clients can use this fact to their advantage as they try to recruit the best talent.
