We Offer Strategic Health & Wellness Programs That Promote Employee Peace Of Mind

Strategic health and wellness programs that promote employee peace of mind.

Your employees are your greatest asset — and generally the most expensive line item on your books. How do you keep them healthy, happy, and committed?

Short answer: Benefits are a key factor.

They’re a must-have if you aim to attract and retain top-flight employees. These days, providing the right package can give you a competitive edge. It’s a win-win. Offering employees an attractive benefits package can lead to increased productivity, commitment and satisfaction, which in turn helps build a healthy and profitable organization.

In 2014, Weiss Insurance Agencies a highly regarded Illinois employee benefits broker, partnered with HRD Advisory Group of Indiana, a leading consulting firm to form WIA Group.

Combined the WIA Group’s employe benefit planning consultants put more than 100 years of experience to work for you.

Here’s what we can do:

  • Create custom plans and initiatives tailored to your company’s culture.
  • Give you access to competitive rates and the latest industry intelligence.
  • Develop a holistic strategy that integrates with your human
    resources philosophy.
  • Partner with you to manage your plan.
  • Offer advice and recommendations.

Employer Solutions

When benefits systems operate smoothly, you spend less time on problems and more on progress. That’s why Weiss Insurance Agencies‘ offers an integrated suite of services and technological support. We can handle benefits consulting, brokerage, administration—and much more. Our focus is on what you and your organization need.

Before we set up your program, we learn about the unique challenges you face every day. Then we work with you to create a strategic framework that’s tailored to meet your needs. Here’s how it works:

  • We listen to you. We want to know what makes you and your organization tick—who you are, what you do, what keeps you up at night.
  • We partner with you. Once we understand your organization’s culture, we work with you to build a long-term solution.
  • We give you options. We bring all the appropriate opportunities to the table, so you can make a decision with all the cards in your hand. There’s no guesswork.
  • We cover the bases. The WIA Group’s suite of service options includes payroll, benefits administration, human capital management tools, transparency tools, online intranets/portals, compliance dashboards and essentials, as well as standard brokerage services such as negotiation, data and analytics reporting, plan design creation and benchmarking.

Benefit Communications

Sometimes, it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it—especially when it comes to benefits plans. Our benefit planning consultants custom design communication and education plans that your employees can relate to.

It’s our goal to help you keep your staff engaged and inspired. Our communications programs are:

  • Tailored. We will customize a plan to meet your unique needs.
  • Robust. We provide media to make your job easier and help employees understand their plans.
  • Integrated. The communication plan we create for you may include surveys, open enrollment guides, videos, benefit newsletters, intranet portals, email campaigns, compliance and more. It’s your choice.

Wellness Programs

Once upon a time, wellness programs were seen as “nice to have.” These days, especially considering recent healthcare legislation, they’re often seen as “need to have”—and for good reason. They work. Your investment in employees’ health can increase productivity, reduce absenteeism, and encourage a collaborative culture.

Our benefit planning consultants design and implement a customized plan that’s right for your organization’s culture. We offer a variety of strategies, ranging from low-cost carrier and state-paid solutions to robust plans incorporating on-site clinics and one-on-one coaching.

The WIA Renewal Designer

Today’s problems require a modern solution, yet 99% of brokers still come to the table with the same stale, static presentations that they’ve been using for the last 20 years. We showcase our unique ability to find creative cost saving solutions, answer questions in real-time and guide our clients to the right decisions. The WIA Renewal Designer creates a completely different conversation with our clients. Learn more. 

Compliance and Analytics

There are countless rules and regulations governing employee benefit plans, many of which are complex. Not only do employee benefit related federal and state regulations impact how your benefit program operates, in many cases they also have an effect on other company policies and practices.

In addition to benefit planning consulting with our clients on the regulatory requirements for employers that sponsor group benefits plans, Weiss Insurance ensures that changes to benefit programs coincide with company policies and are applied in a manner that’s consistent with company culture.

We provide audits, oversight, and training in areas such as:
