The restaurants and hospitality industries face challenges in building benefits plans

Do you have the right strategy for your group health plan? The restaurant and hospitality industries face particular challenges when it comes to finding the right approach to building a sustainable benefits package.

Bernard Health has a decade of experience working with restaurants and hospitality companies, and we offer a suite of innovative products and services to help your employees make the best choices when it comes to healthcare.

Here are three areas of need that restaurants and the hospitality industry face when it comes to benefits. For more, download the free “Benefits Guide for Restaurants and Hospitality.”

Multiple sites cause administrative headaches

Because restaurant and hospitality employees are typically working in multiple locations, keeping track of enrollments by multiple teams at multiple sites can be a truly frustrating process.

Bernard Health clients have access to BerniePortal, an online benefits platform that streamlines benefits administration and enrollment.

Turnover and other HR needs

Many restaurants and hospitality companies don’t have an HR department, which can make it difficult to feel confident about recruitment and retention, let alone whether HR tasks are being administered correctly and in compliance with state and federal regulations.

In addition to benefits administration, BerniePortal is a fully comprehensive HR platform. BerniePortal solves the transactional challenges of HR, including time and attendance tracking, onboarding and offboarding, paid time off, and applicant tracking, which frees up business owners and managers to spend more time on organizational success, including recruitment, retention and skill development.


Developing a cost-effective benefits strategy is key for most employers, but especially those in the restaurant and hospitality industries. Bernard Health employs a variety of funding strategies to create sustainable benefit plans, but we find that innovative strategies can particularly address the needs of industries that may not have traditionally offered benefits plans. These industries are particularly affected by health reform changes and require an advisor able to offer cutting edge solutions.
