Health intelligence

Healthcare is complex and evolving — and new approaches to engage with your partners are more important than ever. We use our expertise in data analytics, clinical methods, and vendor intelligence to understand the aspects of the health care ecosystem that are working for you — along with those that aren’t — to improve your members’ overall health and wellbeing.

Voluntary benefits (Opens in new tab)

Voluntary benefits

Employee wellbeing directly impacts the health of your business. Integrated voluntary benefit solutions can complement and enhance your existing programs and allow your organization to offer a more robust total rewards package. Using a mix of employer-paid and employee-paid benefits, these programs can have a positive impact on the bottom line and create a corporate culture where employees are more engaged and feel valued.

Life, disability, and absence

Every employer wants to recruit and retain top talent, meet short-term and long-term goals for reducing absenteeism, and increase employee engagement. We help you meet these goals through time-off programs that expertly balance the key elements: program design, administration, and case management.

Healthcare audits (Opens in new tab)

Healthcare audits

Annual audits are a critical way for employers to promote vendor accountability. We craft custom audit strategies that allow you to satisfy your fiduciary responsibilities, monitor healthcare vendors, create corrective action plans where necessary, and contain rising healthcare costs.

Global health

As companies grow globally and become more complex, it gets harder to navigate international differences in benefits. We serve as a trusted advisor to multinational employer organizations across all program aspects, including global benefit management, multinational pooling and risk financing, and expatriate and global mobility.

Mental health and emotional wellbeing (Opens in new tab)

Mental health and emotional wellbeing

Work-related stress, along with the pandemic and lifestyle changes, have led to a significant decline in physical and mental health. If your organization is looking to take a pro-active approach to improving employee wellbeing and reduce the stigma around seeking help for mental health challenges, our health and engagement consultants can help you develop the right approach and deliver measurable results for your organization.

“We know that organizations who put the needs of their people at the center of their benefit strategy separate themselves from the pack and see the best results – healthier employees, less absenteeism, greater engagement, higher productivity.”
