Working Solutions was a high quality, outsource provider of work and wellbeing benefits and related support services to large corporate employers, such as Boeing, Allied Signal, Federated Department Stores, and Microsoft. In order to continue to grow the business, Working Solutions required sizeable increases in both capital and personnel. The owner had received acquisition overtures by several of the largest national work/wellbeing benefits providers and determined that its service offerings would be more successful when combined with a larger organization with complementary product offerings and a national sales force.
