Benefits Solutions Group (BSG) is a full-service insurance brokerage and consulting firm.

BSG consultants and staff have extensive industry experience. We strive to build client relationships based on quality service.


Bruce Leon, founder and President of BSG, identified a unique need in the insurance industry for a firm dedicated to personal attention to clients and their insurance needs. BSG has provided customized insurance solutions to companies and individuals in the Chicago area since 1997. Excellent customer service and industry expertise have won many referrals from satisfied clients. In fact, we’re proud of the fact that 90% of our new business comes from word of mouth referrals.

The Tandem Family of Companies

After establishing Benefits Solutions Group, Bruce Leon realized that small and mid-sized businesses could really use additional HR support. Companies could outsource human resources to a Professional Employer Organization (PEO). However, Bruce could not identify a high-touch, customer-centric PEO business model with customizable solutions among the national PEOs. So, in 1998, Bruce officially established a PEO called Tandem Professional Employer Services.

With two companies working in tandem, the business began growing rapidly. Initial growth was attributed to word-of-mouth referrals from satisfied clients and business partners. In 2006, the Tandem Family of Companies welcomed Alliance Workplace Solutions. Workplace Solutions offers voluntary benefits that are 100% employee paid and owned. This gave clients the option to offer additional benefits at affordable group rates for employees to supplement their benefits packages.

In 2008, Tandem PES changed its name to Tandem HR to create more understanding among prospective clients about their services.

In 2011, Workplace Solution EAP joined the Tandem Family of Companies bringing a full-service employee assistance program in-house.

The Tandem Family of Companies currently boasts a staff of over 100 employees. Together, they service hundreds of thousands of worksite employees with benefits, human resources, and EAP needs.


Benefits Solutions Group and the Tandem Family of Companies strive to provide customized and high-touch human resource solutions to organizations, enabling their growth and creating phenomenal company cultures.
