• Our Approach

Our consultative approach allows us to learn your business priorities, culture and philosophy to better inform you about benefit program design. We outline strategies and advise you on alternatives, including non-traditional approaches. Our goal is to help you implement creative benefit plans that meet today's needs, while planning for the future.

Our staff of professionals has multi-dimensional experience, including specialties and cross-training in underwriting, funding alternatives, taxation, legislative compliance, cafeteria plans, consumer-driven plan designs, managed care programs, retirement plans and human resources. Our benefit consultants have an average of 20 years of industry experience and our account managers have an average of 15 years of industry experience.

Our expertise enables us to best design and manage a competitive benefits program for your employees. Our consultants pass their knowledge on to you through regular communications and meetings, seminars, training workshops and timely legislative updates. We are frequently asked to speak at key human resource and other professional forums.

Our team strategy ensures that your employee benefit needs are met at all times. Each client has a dedicated account team that includes a primary consultant and account managers. Additional resources and staff provide continuity of service and comprehensive advice.

Our independent structure allows us to weigh the strengths and weaknesses of each vendor on your behalf. We work with all major insurance carriers, administrators and investment companies and are committed to ethical, unbiased competitive bid solicitations. Our large client base, experience and reputation in the industry afford us preferential service and negotiating leverage.

Our participation in the industry means that we stay involved.
