BROOKFIELD — International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans was named a 2015 winner of The Principal 10 Best Companies for Employee Financial Security.

According to the announcement, judges selected the Brookfield-based International Foundation because of its commitment to employee financial security through outstanding employee benefits.  The Foundation, currently employing 140 people, will also be featured in the October issue of Inc. Magazine for this achievement.

“Companies like the International Foundation are role models and provide inspiration for other growing businesses that want to become an employer of choice,” said Luke Vandermillen, vice president at the Principal Financial Group, in a statement. “These companies stand out not only for their commitment to their employees but also for their innovation in creating a workplace culture that fosters total employee financial security.”

As part of their best practices, the International Foundation works with Milliman, Marco Consulting and Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren s.c. to help make choices that supports their employees’ financial future.

Along with the award recognition, The Principal awards a donation to a charity selected by each winning company. The International Foundation chose Waukesha’s Hebron House of Hospitality to receive the $2,500 donation, which The Foundation is matching.
