Our Story

About Steele

The company has been in business for decades and helps companies with employees throughout the United States. We connect employees with the benefits they need to live prosperous lives. When employees understand the benefits offered by their company, employees tend to be more loyal and productive.

Our Promise

We guarantee satisfaction with our service. In the event you’re not satisfied and wish to cancel service, we will allow you to terminate your service with Steele with 90 days’ notice, and we’ll provide you the data you need to transition to your next provider.

Unwavering Purpose

For 20 years, the employee has been at the center of Steele’s services. Our aim is to help America’s workforce and their families lead prosperous lives. Prosperity requires financial health, physical health, and mental health. At Steele, we understand that all three are important.

Who We Are

In the 1960s, the Steele family had 5 brothers sleeping sideways on one bed, walking miles to school in the snow, uphills both ways. Hard work and the Steele values have served the family well since then, and Steele Benefit Services is owned by three members of the Steele family.

The Steele family is a family of entrepreneurs and has formed at least nine different businesses over the past two generations. Behind Steele is a set of core values, and still today we identify, hire, review, and promote the people with shared common values. Among those values: 1) a commitment to be helpful, 2) acting with responsiveness, 3) exhibiting teamwork, 4) earning trust, and 5) being our genuine selves.

How We’re Different

Employers have many options for who to work with, but there are certain things that make Steele a unique fit. Those things include:

  • An intersection of technology and people. Some companies execute benefit enrollments using great technology. Other companies use people for great group and 1×1 benefits meetings. With Steele, you get both.
  • Experience with the complex. Steele has experience with employers with multiple unions, location-specific eligibility, multiple classes of benefits eligibility and contributions, multiple payroll calendars, hundreds of locations, dozens of states, and multiple different EIN’s.
  • Simple & easy to do business with. We have a flat corporate structure and our employees are doers. It’s not uncommon for our clients to have direct access to department directors, or even our CEO.

"I have had the pleasure of working closely with Steele for the past 5 years and I cannot express enough my gratitude for all they have done for us. Steele has always been more than accommodating with our unique situations, from managing change, carriers and open enrollment. We have never had any issues and have been very satisfied with the service provided by their teams, as they go above and beyond every time. We are grateful for the year round support we receive."
