With an unlimited budget it’s easy to offer an employee benefit program that puts you a cut above your competition. Unfortunately, unlimited budgets are often not a reality, and employers have to balance the needs of the organization, employees and budget when designing their benefit offerings.
We partner with you to understand your mission, corporate culture, demographics and budget, in order to connect your benefits strategy to them. Our process identifies not just cost advantages but also behavioral changes that take place when you alter your plan design. We compare trends in cost, utilization and population health to help you create a healthier, more productive workforce.
Through surveys you will know what benefits matter most to your employees. You won’t waste dollars on premiums, paying for services that are not valued by your employees. The result is a complete benefits strategy that stems the tide of rising costs and improves employee engagement — all making you an employer of choice.

This article provides some thoughts on these issues as well as the compliance traps employers will want to watch out for.
At USI, we’re dedicated to helping you stay abreast of fast-changing legislative and regulatory developments and guidance related to health and welfare plans that could impact your business.
