Our unique SHIFT process allows our clients a better understanding of the options available when offering health insurance and other employee benefit programs. Through the use of proprietary comparative data and our extensive market experience, we help small businesses make difficult benefit decisions. Our commitment to the education of plan administrators and employees is what differentiates us from our competition.
The SHIFT Analysis™ is a specific series of questions developed by our team designed to help us gain a full understanding of our client's organization and its needs. Exploring their strengths, hurdles, interests, future and trends we identify their path to employee benefit programs sure to attract and retain the highest quality employees.
The Benefits Benchmark™ is a proprietary set of data, collected by surveying more than 400 companies in the Chicagoland Small Business Community. Through the use of this comparative report our clients become better educated regarding the local employee benefits marketplace. Ultimately, this process enables better decision making which leads to more sustainable employee benefit programs.
Employee benefit plan decisions require more than an understanding of options available within the existing insurance providers. Exploration of alternative carriers and an analysis of the growing consumer driven health care (CDHC) methodology, are equally important. The Opportunity Report™ offers detailed explanations of plan alternatives, and addresses potential costs. This report concludes with a recommendation based on the client's situation and our team's experience.
Our team is committed to keeping the benefits SHIFT experience manageable for our clients. The SHIFT Accelerator™ is a simplified implementation process which allows for confidence in direction and makes changing employee benefit plans far less daunting for our clients.
The Benefits Academy™ is a series of educational programs, designed by our team, intended to further the understanding of employee benefit plans for administrators and also for covered employees. These forums allow employers the opportunity of educating their employees and getting the most out of the benefit plans they offer. Academy classes include, but are not limited to, health insurance, retirement planning, life insurance, voluntary benefits and college planning.
Our team realizes that what sets us apart from our competition is our ability to serve our clients. Anticipating and dealing with client needs is our top priority. The Advocacy Advantage™ is our customer service and communication program. "Client first" approach, developed with the help of our own clients, allows a single point of contact and pre-determined schedules for resolution of issues. Our clients know what to expect from their insurance carriers and are constantly kept in the communication loop.
Through our process, The Proactive Renewal Program™, we provide our clients with the maximum amount of time and education necessary to choose the best possible employee benefits plan at the best possible price relative to their unique employee benefits situation.
