To Attract the Best, You Need to Offer the Best
Attract and Retain Employees by Offering Better Benefits
Key employees are the lifeblood of your company and it is crucial to be more attractive than your competitors. Benefits are necessary to recruit and retain your best employees, but most companies offer essentially the same benefits as everyone else. How do you offer more and set yourself apart?
Kai-Zen is a unique strategy that allows you to achieve a competitive advantage by offering the best benefits, provide more protection, and potentially save more for employees’ retirement. Simply put, the Kai-Zen Strategy provides you with the extra funding to set yourself apart without having to increase your budget.
More Cost Effective than Traditional Plans
The real reason businesses are not offering additional benefits to their key employees is cost. The Kai-Zen Strategy uses leverage to help cover the costs of the additional benefits needed to attract top talent. A unique feature of Kai-Zen is that there are no loan qualifications or loan documents signed by the employer or employee. The contributions made to the strategy act to fully secure the loan. Utilizing Kai-Zen allows companies to spend less on something that would otherwise be a substantial expense. This will ultimately improve your cash flow and decrease costs while offering the differentiation needed to compete for the best employees.
In addition, due to the high cost of benefits, businesses also find it difficult to provide adequate coverage for other business liabilities such as Key Person, Buy-Sell Agreements, Succession Planning, etc. These events can typically be funded at half the cost of traditional options with Kai-Zen.
A Better Way to Fund Contingent Business Liabilities (Key Person, Buy-Sell Agreements, Succession Planning, etc.)
Key executives leave for a variety of reasons which can leave a business scrambling to cover their loss. They can become disabled, develop a chronic illness, retire, pass away, or simply leave. Most companies use their cash to grow their business and not to fund contingent business liabilities. Kai-Zen helps provide the funding needed to protect your business in a wider variety of circumstances.
A Better Way to Informally Fund Deferred Compensation
Kai-Zen is a superior way to informally fund Non-Qualified Deferred Compensation. By financing a life insurance policy as opposed to traditional investment alternatives, you get the added advantage of additional cash through the use of leverage, potential tax-deferred growth, protection benefits should something happen to the employee all without downside market risk.
