A little history
Vanguard Resources, Inc. (VRI) is an employee benefits consultancy founded by Anne Sperling in 1984. Our years of expertly designing employee benefit packages including insurance, wellness & health promotion, employee benefit communication techniques, and supplemental benefits has rewarded employers with existing employee loyalty and new hire attraction.
Vanguard – if you are in the “vanguard”, you are up front, you are leading the way.
Resource –is an outside talent that can be tapped for help or support. Resources – plural – many opportunities for retrieving knowledge and support.
Our strong business-to-business experience was acquired over our more than 32 years of doing business. We have produced positive results for clients in non-profits, engineering, academia, medical offices, veterinary medicine, laboratories, surgical centers, pharmaceutical, public utilities, public employers, and tribal employers.
Anne Sperling was one of the founders and was the first Executive Director for the NM Health Insurance Alliance. The Alliance was a quasi-governmental program for the underserved small employers of NM. The Alliance served to fill the small group medical insurance gaps for 20 years. Anne’s leadership for the first four years of its existence proved to lay the groundwork for its success for the next 16.
Our depth of experience dealing with businesses of NM is quite extensive. We successfully worked to establish the first employee benefits program for a public university that was not administering benefits on its own – they were under an umbrella plan through the state. We also successfully worked to establish a sustainable retiree medical program for a public utility saving valuable budget dollars for the active employees. The savings has been over $150,000 per year since inception. We have worked with so many non-profits over the years that benchmarking information about benefit set-up is accessible and relevant.
At Vanguard Resources we marry the disciplines and experience of a large agency with the creative excellence and personal attention of a small, boutique agency. The depth of our background and our acquired experience are unparalleled for any agency in our geographic location. Superior customer service is what sets us apart from other agencies. Our policy is to bring clarity to employee benefits and do whatever it takes to ensure our clients are completely satisfied with our work.
