Healthy people. Healthy business.

Funded by Access Health CT Small Business

Frequently, access to health care has been difficult for many people, particularly employees of small businesses. Hear true stories from small business owners about their decision to offer health insurance to their employees and also hear from employees who have benefitted from this decision.

Chris Gray

Offering healthcare to our employees is/was the easiest decision we had when we started our business. I believe you show your appreciation to your employees in many ways, but the most important is having access to affordable and great medical coverage, as well as vision, dental and a 401k plan for the future. We believe this helps in both employee retention and attracting new talented professionals.

I am a veteran of the US Marine Corps and hold an MBA from the University of New Haven. I have lived in Connecticut with my wife and 2 children for 17 years.

As owner of SM Mechanical Services in Glastonbury, it was an easy choice to make to provide my team with the option of health care. Being a family-owned company, we strive to take care of our employees as if they are family of our own.
