How It Works:

No employee is a nameless, faceless stranger to us. We utilize the benefits administration system access to quickly identify each person so we can work with them on a first-name basis. We will also utilize our clients' relevant materials, including:

• SPDs and Benefits Summary Guides

• Employee and dependent information

• Company-specific documentation

• Benefit eligibility and costs

We record, document and categorize every call by type and subtype, which makes it easy to review previous calls and history, including notes and recordings. Clients also get complete information in regular reports. This allows them to see the big picture and the smallest details, so they're always informed of what’s trending in their business. Regular reporting enables clients to respond early to potential challenges and to make their people management and communication programs that much better.
