True satisfaction comes from helping educate employees on the best use of the benefits their employers offer.

Tim Olson, Managing Partner of The Olson Group of Omaha, has been named the EBA’s 2015 Employee Benefit Adviser of the Year. This is the second award for Olson in 2015 and comes on the heels of Doing More with Less, a book he helped co-author. Combined with Olson’s work in his local community of Omaha, Neb., and his regional presence working with over 150 clients in Nebraska, Missouri, South Dakota and Kansas, Olson stood out from dozens of applicants due to his holistic approach to employee benefits, genuine character and trendsetting business practices.

“We feel very blessed to see many things coming into fruition because of our hard work and commitment to our customers,” said Olson, who encourages his employees to participate in supporting the community in his adopted home city of Omaha. “The Olson Group sponsors over 20 local community charities each year—charitable donations were over $50,000 this past year. We also encourage our employees to get involved and donate time to charities of their choice.” This includes works with the Abide Network and Kids Against Hunger.

Clients in the healthcare industry make up much of The Olson Group’s client base for employee benefits and retirement planning. His career started with Gardner & White, an employee benefits company located in Indianapolis, where Olson spent 22 years. In 2003, he formed his own company, The Olson Group, and retained 95% of his clients.

The “service first” mentality continues to guide Olson today. “True satisfaction comes from helping educate employees on the best use of the benefits their employers offer.” The Olson Group covers over 30,000 employees in the Midwest region. Presently, Olson consults with employers assisting them with self-funded and fully insured medical and dental programs, consumer-driven health strategies, term life, long term disability insurance, section 125 flexible benefit programs, voluntary benefits, retirement programs and executive compensation plans.

“We are very excited about this award, it validates the reinvestment we have made in the company with respect to technology, infrastructure and key employees over the past five years,” said Olson.
