Benefit Solutions: Designed to Unlock Business Growth and Potential‚Äč

Does your current benefits plan empower your workforce and support your growth trajectory? We believe it should.

There is simply no reason the goals of an employer’s benefits offering should be at odds with the goals of the employee. In a complex workforce environment, our benefits team is driven to challenge the status quo.

Impact Story


A leader in steel processing since 1885, Owen Industries has successfully navigated nearly 140 years of evolutionary change in their workforce. While their commitment to industry-leading benefits had always been a key component of their workforce strategy, they found themselves questioning the perceived value and subsequent return on investment associated with these offerings. The time had come to explore what’s possible.  


With both organizations championing client-centric and growth-minded cultures, the leadership of Owen Industries and TrueNorth immediately set to work modernizing Owen’s offerings and gaining deeper insight into what matters to their employees. Through this engagement, the organization’s leadership identified ways to enhance existing offerings, improve communication and awareness, and empower Owen employees and their families to take ownership in healthcare decisions.  

“Simply put, TrueNorth offers “legendary service” - they have exceeded all our expectations!  I appreciate TrueNorth’s passion and drive, going above and beyond to deliver strategic and innovative solutions that transform our approach to health and benefits planning, thus reducing costs without sacrificing quality. We are happy to say that we now have an advocate in our corner; a broker-partner that proactively and effectively addresses our health care coverage needs, providing options that align with the needs of our business and more importantly, meet the needs of our valued employees.” 

-Ron DeBord, Chief Human Resources Officer, Owen Industries
