What we do at my Better Benefits . . .              

For sixteen years, the team that manages my Better Benefits has been developing and implementing employee savings programs, the culmination of which is my Better Benefits, now the largest and most comprehensive program of its kind in the Northeast - offering over 3,500 ways to save including a unique cash back rewards program for members.

We are governed by an independently elected Board of Directors.

The mission of my Better Benefits is "to work in partnership with member organizations to create a more informed and caring workforce - one aware and invigorated by a deeper understanding of resources available to employees and the community at large."

my Better Benefits was formed for the charitable purpose of aiding underprivileged children in the communities we serve who are in need of food, medical attention, clothing, and shelter by providing direct contributions and contributions of gifts in kind to organizations that  provide housing, family support services, food and medical attention to children and their families. mBB is to be an informational resource for human resource and benefits professionals of participating companies  who seek to improve the welfare of children in their communities, enhance their benefits offerings to volunteers and families, and improve the professionalism of their staff by providing wellness and recreational offerings, sponsoring workshops and seminars on wellness.  We have been providing savings and discounts to our membership since 2002.  In 2014, we became a not-for-profit and in 2015, we were formally granted charitable organization status by the IRS.

my Better Benefits is a tax exempt organization under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)3.  Our designation makes us entirely unique among organizations of our type and is the major point of difference between our organization and others.  We exist to serve, not to make a profit.

A special thank you to the above organizations for their contributions that went above and beyond the norm in supporting our activities to benefit children in the communities we serve.

     

How we operate . . .

my Better Benefits is a professional organization started by the team that ran RARES for 12 years.   We recognized the need for a much more comprehensive and effective program and started mBB in 2014 to offer significantly more to companies and their employees than other organizations offered and to give back to children in the communities we served.  Service and responsiveness has always been the hallmark of the team that leads mBB and no other organization can match us in those respects. 

In addition to our charitable activities, mBB was created in part to assist in offering employee benefits and savings on products and services to its membership.  Our offerings are not just local, but regional and national in scope.  For example, we work with organizations such as Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics (Johnson & Johnson) and Xerox to not only provide savings to their employees in New York but also throughout the U.S. including savings on movie theatres, car rentals, hotels, and hundreds of amusement and water parks nationwide.   Our wide variety of programs and services include human resource seminars and educational offers for the HR & Benefits fields.  Our program is the largest of its kind in the area with more participating companies and more than five  times as many savings opportunities for our membership.

Our member companies nominate a representative to serve as their contact point with my Better Benefits and who disseminates information to that company's employees.  Most of these representatives are Human Resource Directors or Benefits Specialists who work in employee benefits, services, and/or recreation fields. In its simplest state, mBB exists to both increase employee retention and build corporate morale.  We are a cost effective means of offering an additional employee benefit to your company.

my Better Benefits solicits contributions and raises funds from its members in order to complete its mission.  It also solicits  membership fees from  to support the undertakings of the organization which include educational activities in the areas of human resource management and employee relations as well as charitable undertakings aimed at providing access to recreation venues for underprivileged youth in our region.  We give back to our community - complimentary tickets, reduced or free memberships to companies working with children and youth in the communities we served.  In 2014, we donated back over 15% of our revenues in this fashion.  Our CEO and staff have provided assistance either in the form of direct contributions or gifts-in-kind to support the activities of organizations such as The Golisano Children's Hospital, The Childfirst Network, Action for a Better Community, the Society for the Protection and Care of Children, the Pediatric Unit and the Pediatric Heart Unit at Rochester General Hospital (Sands-Constellation Heart Institute), the Friends of Strong Hospital, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Rochester, Foodlink, Stepping Stones Learning Center, Mary Cariola Children's Center, Planned Parenthood, Aids Care Rochester (now Trillium Health), Canandaigua YMCA, Rochester YMCA, Easter Seals of NY, Highland Hospital, Bushnell's Basin Volunteer Fire Department, Artisan Works, WXXI, Jazz 90.1, the Genesee Country Village and Museum, YMCA of Greater Rochester, Henrietta Volunteer Fire Department and the Children's Tumor Foundation at the University of Rochester.

We like to say that my Better Benefits is many things to many people.  First and foremost, we are an organization dedicated to promoting and bettering the benefits packages of our member companies and improving the professionalism of their HR & Benefits staffs.  That's why we were founded and that's why we continue to exist.

Our mission statement notes that my Better Benefits is dedicated to promoting Employee Services and Recreational programs as an integral factor in sound business management principles and workforce readiness initiatives by providing education, networking and resources to those of you responsible for employee morale programs.  That's a mouthful, but it does summarize why we do what we do.  We're more than just savings opportunities for our members.  By providing adjunct services such as wellness programs and savings on health benefits, we endeavor to be part of an integral solution to a companies benefits needs.  We're here to raise morale.  That's what we do and we do it well!

 

Employee morale managers typically work in the human resource departments of organizations. They are responsible for managing employee services, including recreation programs, community services, recognition programs, event planning, childcare/eldercare services, convenience services, and travel offerings. Employee Morale and Recreation Association exists to enhance the employee services profession through education, peer networking and discounts on products and services. 

As a key part of what it does, my Better Benefits offers savings on products and services to its membership.  The organization hosts professional development seminars on topics ranging from human resource issues to those involving marketing and production.  To these HR benefits representatives who serve as the interface between my Better Benefits office and their respective companies, we are an invaluable resource - providing cost effective employee benefits with ease.

To our more than 350,000 individual members (and their families), we are a source of savings on everything from food to legal services to amusement and recreation. 

To the companies who join my Better Benefits to promote their products or services through the discounts offered to our larger membership, the association is the most cost effective method of promotion available.  Member companies may pay a membership fee to be a current member of the organization.  The organization may obtain revenue (i.e., commissions) from purchases of online merchandise offered at a discount on the web site. 

mBB does endorse the vendors who are members of my Better Benefits and encourages members to support these organizations with their purchases.  Likewise, we investigate complaints of alleged issues with  offerings and asks that the membership report any concerns immediately to my Better Benefits office.  my Better Benefits will make every effort to review and if necessary mediate a resolution and may take action for violations including revocation of membership for violations of policy and procedures.  We've existed as a corporate entity since 2006.

 

What is the Purpose of my Better Benefits?

The purpose of my Better Benefits is to bring together individuals and companies seeking savings on their everyday purchases with vendors who are wiling to provide our membership with savings.   We exist to supplement the benefits offerings of our respective employer members.
