Our Story

For two decades, the founders of EIO Solutions helped small business owners tackle HR issues they weren’t equipped to handle in-house, and introduced new health benefits solutions designed specifically for small groups.

They realized none of their clients had real control over the cost of their workforce. Owners’ focus was on their business’ core operations. They didn’t have the time, expertise or information to micromanage employee expenses or prevent costly visits from labour lawyers or government agencies.

They accepted that employing great people cost a lot of money, but didn’t realize that cost was inflated by inefficiencies, avoidable fines & lawsuits, and financial black holes like health benefits.

Those wasted resources are missed opportunities to invest in engaging their team. And when businesses struggle to engage talented workers, they struggle to compete.

EIO Solutions: Canada’s first Employee Investment Optimization firm was founded to give owners control of these employee costs.

The revolutionary management philosophy exposes where investments aren’t producing value and introduces new opportunities to invest in proven employee-engagement strategies.

Employing innovative technologies and hands-on attention from EIO Experts: HR processes are streamlined; health & safety compliance is ensured; fines and lawsuits are avoided; and health benefit premiums are stabilized.

And with investment plans custom-built for each client, employee satisfaction increases, benefits become more valued; and productivity jumps.

With EIO Solutions, small business owners will attract, engage, and retain the best people, ensuring their businesses continue to thrive.

Over its 160-year heritage, Aetna has contributed to a stronger, healthier global community by delivering comprehensive health care benefits and population health solutions worldwide.

They saw the difficulties faced by small business owners and seized the opportunity to support this market. As Jason McCormick, Senior Director, Sales and Service for Aetna International Canada puts it:

“There are over eight million Canadians whose health would improve with a better health benefits plan. We were drawn to re-enter the Canadian market to support this group—and the employers they work for. To engage with small business owners and tailor policies to suit, we turned to a Canadian partner on a similar mission.”

With the partnership, EIO Solutions, now powered by Aetna, levels the playing field for all small businesses in Canada and empowers their employees to be healthier, happier and more productive as a result.”
