For companies in every industry, profitable growth is exciting, energizing and emblematic of successful business strategies. But growth also brings challenges, such as finding and onboarding the right talent to maintain momentum. Riding a wave of success, a professional temporary services provider experienced a 120-percent increase in headcount between 2012 and 2016. One result was a significant increase in the cost of the benefit program underwritten by their current provider. In addition, the company was experiencing ongoing errors generated by an enrollment platform that often mismatched employees and their benefit choices. It was time to interview some new employee benefits talent.


Experiencing significant premium increases, the client turned to Vertus for an independent review of the underwriting assumptions driving their costs. Vertus reviewed the firm’s coverages and revealed a possible 10-percent savings even with the current program. Impressed, the client chose Vertus as its new Broker of Record, after which further technical underwriting generated an additional 21.5-percent reduction in medical cost savings over what would have been the renewal program with the prior broker. Vertus also worked with the client and their payroll processor to reduce processing errors, ensuring smooth running of the onboarding platform with zero errors going forward.
