Retirement Plan Solution for Small Businesses

Transamerica Retirement Plan Exchange

The Retirement Plan Exchange (the Exchange), powered by Transamerica, allows small businesses to provide a retirement plan to employees without having to take on all the administrative and fiduciary responsibilities that come with it. The Exchange  can help reduce the administrative burden, transfer certain risks, and potentially reduce costs. With the Exchange, a team of professionals works together on your behalf so you can focus on running your business – not your retirement plan. When you offer a plan through the Exchange, you become a participating employer. Participating employers in the Exchange do not have to share a common association or industry.

Training and Credentialing Opportunities

RISE Up Retail Credentialing

Administered by RCA (an entity of NCRMA), RISE Up is a National Retail Federation training and credentialing program providing foundational employability skills to help people land jobs and get promoted in retail.

There are four credentials available: Business of Retail; Customer Service and Sales; Warehouse, Inventory, and Logistics; and Retail Industry Fundamentals.
