Partnership Benefits

Partnership Benefits

Grow. Protect. Trust.

We’ll help you protect your book, deliver a new revenue stream, and support our mutual clients with our unique local service model. We are structured so every one of our clients is paired with a dedicated local team. A local team who work hard to understand their company and their vision and earns their trust so we can help them grow their business. That trust is why we have a client retention rate of over 90% with thousands of clients nationwide. It's also why you can feel confident that our mutual clients will be well taken care of.

Commission Structure

Commission Structure

Designed to Scale Up.

We believe in a competitive commission structure which is why our unique program is designed to scale up as we grow our book together. Your commission percentage increases with the number and size of the referrals who become BBSI clients. Commissions are paid out monthly based on prior month’s billing. BBSI will continue to pay you as long as our mutual client works with us and is able to support payment of the fees.  

Grow Your Book

Grow Your Book

Combined Effort. Unique Success.

How many of your comp partners not only help you protect your book but actively engage in helping you grow it? We truly believe that to achieve success we must approach the market with a combined effort. We’ve created unique co-branded marketing programs to help us target individual markets and industries together. We know that the sum of the individual parts is greater than the parts themselves which is why we want to work with you.

Switching to BBSI has been a game changer for my business. My local team has provided guidance to me on several levels, including HR advice, creating employee documents, handbook, recruiting and invitations to BBSI networking events.

In my opinion, the highest value BBSI brings to the clients is that they are not like the competition because no other company does what BBSI does.  The clients will never have to dial an 800# to reach someone. That’s huge. I think clients come for what they think they are getting.  They stay because BBSI knocks their socks off with extraordinary service. I am grateful for the continued collaboration.

I love working with BBSI, not only for my clients that we cannot write the comp on, but for my clients who need additional business services that only BBSI provides. The relationship that my agents have with BBSI is an important one, and it ensures the client stays in our books. I write a lot of life insurance with these commercial clients that I place, and I probably couldn't have that relationship if I lost them to another company or broker. BBSI has been a wonderful partner to work with!

We love BBSI. They let us focus on our business, not on payroll. We have used them to really think hard about what our mission is. They helped us think about how to grow and what we need to do to get there. We are a small business. It is great to have someone to help ask questions and walk with you day to day.

Like all of us, my clients were blindsided by COVID. With all the changes that hit everyone in a flash, businesses are still doing what they can to stay in business. I call BBSI our 'sustainability partner' because if it wasn't for their help in this dire time of need, many more businesses would have not made it. On behalf of BBSI clients everywhere, thank you BBSI.
