Sandy, Utah, October 21,, the premiere PEO for human resources outsourcing in the Intermountain West, is excited to announce the expansion of Stratus Agency, an independent insurance brokerage. “For years, we’ve had clients request a more holistic approach to our insurance offerings, specifically regarding property and casualty lines,” said John Farnsworth, co-owner and CEO of both and Stratus Agency. “You have no idea how thrilled I am to provide this arm of our services! And its independence now allows Stratus Agency to procure commercial insurance for anybody, regardless of their affiliation with”

Stratus Agency has long been in the background procuring incredible benefits packages to give clients a competitive advantage for recruiting and retention. “We saved our clients over $1 million on our health plan alone this year,” said Farnsworth. But until recently, the Agency was uniquely tied to and has had to rely on outside agencies to offer clients property and casualty insurance. “Now we’re taking our services to the next level with products such as EPLI, General Liability, Professional Liability, Property and Commercial Auto to provide complete business coverage.”

While its independence and expansion adds more business-writing opportunities for non-clients of, companies that partner with both Stratus Agency as their brokerage and as their HR outsourcing provider will discover advantages unique to other businesses. “Instead of managing multiple broker relationships, Stratus Agency will help clients fill coverage gaps, find areas of double coverage that can be eliminated, and simplify renewal and cert requests — all in a one-stop-shop,” explains Farnsworth. “Not only will clients have access to robust benefits packages that are second to none, but they’ll also get total business protection from a service team that knows their company better than any other agency in the market.”

Staffed with certified talent that has decades of P&C experience, Stratus Agency is ready to give businesses an enviable client experience with unparalleled customer service. It does, however, have a targeted audience in mind. “Any organization with the shared mindset that employees are their company’s most valuable assets is encouraged to contact Stratus Agency,” advised Farnsworth.
