Whether you are a public school district or an institution of higher learning, we have the knowledge and experience you need to create a benefits plan suited to your needs.
School districts have unique challenges in designing their employee benefits plans. As a public entity, you are subject to greater scrutiny and must be able to show fiscal responsibility. As an employer, you want to offer your employees the best benefits possible. Balancing the needs of your employees with the demands of being in the public eye can be a daunting task.
School districts also have the advantage, albeit a challenging one at times, of being exempt from some of the restrictions and laws that other employers have. While this can provide more choices and additional opportunities to control costs, it also necessitates the assistance of an experienced advisor who understands these challenges and can help you maximize the opportunities that come with them.
We are experienced in working with school districts to understand their unique circumstances, budgets, and schedules. We can help you design and implement employee benefits and retirement plans that will make the grade.
Colleges and Universities
Colleges and universities have a variety of challenges in creating their benefits plans. These institutions of higher learning have several distinct groups to be concerned with: highly trained faculty and administrators, hourly employees, and students.
Colleges and universities are tasked with providing competitive benefits and choices that will help them compete in attracting both highly-trained full-time faculty and adjunct professors. They may have to provide international benefits for professors and students traveling and studying abroad.
In addition to attracting top-level educators, institutions of higher learning must also meet the needs of their hourly employees. Many also offer student health and accident insurance. And often, benefits decisions in this industry are not made by one or two key decision makers but by a committee.
No matter what challenges you may face as an institution of higher learning, we have the experience and expertise to help you create a benefits package that will help you meet your diverse needs.
