Case Studies- Employee Benefits

Click headers for detailed case studies:

Behavioral Healthcare Services

As a result of growth through acquisition, the company was faced with the challenge of integrating operations and unifying the employee benefits offerings and administration across their facilities. In addition, its previous benefits broker did not have the marketing capabilities to explore all options and present a plan of action in a timely manner. As a result, upper management was given last minute renewals with very few options. Open enrollment was mishandled and employees openly complained about the benefits offered through their employer.

Manufacturer of High-pressure Cylinders

During our ten-year relationship with the company, SCM has been providing a comprehensive Employee Benefits plan that fulfills the needs of the company's employees across multiple states. The plans, including medical, dental, vision, life and long term disability insurance, as well as voluntary products, consistently generate high employee satisfaction ratings. In its effort to reduce costs, the company requested that SCM revise its plans to meet its lower budget, without reducing employee satisfaction.

Credit Union

During an eight year relationship with the company, SCM developed a comprehensive benefit program which included medical, dental, vision, life, short term disability and long term disability insurance and voluntary programs. The employees throughout the various locations were very satisfied with the plan choices. The challenge was to renew their Employee Benefit program within budget, while retaining as many of the benefits as possible.

Family-owned Retail Chain

In anticipation of lower revenues resulting from changing economic times in 2008, the company was proactive in addressing ways to reduce its expenses. The company asked SCM to reduce its employee benefits costs by 15%, without putting additional financial strain on its employees or communicating that the company was having financial hardships. As a family-owned business, the owners have tremendous respect for their employees and take great pride in providing medical, dental, vision and life insurance plans.

"By investing the time to learn about our business, our SCM insurance broker is able to provide superb service. As a result, he has earned our loyalty and all of our insurance business."
