Do you remember a time when you weren’t so busy? We are always connected and multi-tasking – doing more with less. Human Resources professionals are no exception. So I wondered… do you consider your benefits advisor to be an extension of your HR and benefits department?
Consider the following:
An issue or question arises that you can’t easily resolve or don’t have the answer to. You could contact the insurance company or plan provider, but will you reach a live person who is familiar with your benefits who can quickly help you? Or does it make more sense to contact your benefits/retirement plan advisor.
Your plan advisor may have an immediate answer for you. However, if additional research is needed, your advisor will take the time to assist you in resolving the situation. We know you can’t drop everything every time an employee needs assistance with benefits or retirement, which is why we encourage our clients to rely on us.
Hiring an individual to manage the day-to-day benefits work may be on your wish list, but with budgets tight, extra staff will likely remain on your wish list. That’s where ISG Advisors comes in. We have a team of experienced benefits and retirement professionals who are happy to help you and your employees. Our advisors will do the necessary groundwork and investigation so you or your employee gets answers in a timely manner – all without the extra payroll expense.
You don’t need the extra anxiety and workload, but you do deserve a partner who is dedicated to helping you handle the issues and questions that arise regarding your employee benefits and retirement plan.
Rely on the qualifications and education of the advisors at ISG Advisors, and consider our team an extension of your HR/benefits department. We’re here to help.
