When Walworth County makes employee benefit decisions, it keeps the ripple effect in mind. For a governmental unit, the ripples start with the employees that it wants to recruit and retain. Those employees typically place a high value on access to health care. But the ripples extend outward to impact all the taxpayers who live in Walworth County, located on the southern Wisconsin border.

Aqua-Aerobic Systems designs and manufactures wastewater treatment equipment and systems for municipal and industrial markets.
Even a good wellness program can benefit from a fresh approach.
