Peanut Butter CEO David Aronson was a featured speaker at the EBN Benefits Forum & Expo in Boca Raton, Florida today. Nicole Skaluba, Director of Employee Services at Rise Interactive joined Aronson in a panel titled, “Designing and Implementing an Effective Student Loan Assistance Program”.

“Peanut Butter designs student loan assistance plans tailored to meet employers’ individualized goals,” said Aronson. “Whether our customers are focusing on attracting or retaining talent, increasing employee engagement, or setting themselves as an employer of choice, we design a program that is effective and easy to implement.”

Employee Benefit News (EBN) is a primary media resource that benefit professionals rely on to navigate the complexities of employee benefit planning and delivery. More than 700 employers, insurance carriers and other benefit professionals attended the expo this year.

Attendees of the session learned about benchmarking and best practices for designing Student Loan Assistance programs, and heard from Rise Interactive, a leading digital agency, about its experience implementing Student Loan Assistance. “Peanut Butter has been a great partner and has really put us on the map in terms of the benefits we offer,” said Skaluba. “[Student Loan Assistance] sets us apart and allows us to attract and retain the best talent. It’s an investment in the future of every employee that participates.”

Employers and benefits brokers attending the event were encouraged to visit for help designing Student Loan Assistance programs for their organizations and clients, respectively.
