The Website is a Resource
Promote and encourage its use
Providing an employee benefits website to help with the education of employers and employees is a powerful communication tool. An idle website is not enough; we create awareness and work to ensure that employees use the website to its full potential. A website increases plan participation by offering a comprehensive view of benefit plans and HR functions.

PORTAL INFORMATION


Community

The Client Portal Community section lets The Horton Group clients network with a vast, knowledgeable group of colleagues from all over the country, and share resources and information via the Community’s interactive forum; this allows you to post questions to peers and provide insight to other’s questions. Topics include Compensation, Employee Relations, HR Development, HR Management Topics, Recruitment, Risk Management, and Other.

It facilitates efficient and easy communication with The Horton Group and our clients, and provides a vast array of material regarding HR data, such as legislative information, employee communications, industry-related Web sites, and consumer-related information.

Confidential Claims Assistance
Assuring employees of privacy and compliance
Since employers have personal liabilities from helping employees with a claim, this HIPAA Compliant Resource is a tool available for assisting with escalated claims. This resource is confidential and keeps all health issues private while providing the employee the assistance they require.

Assist New Hires and Spouses
New employee communication moves one step further
Successful companies work to attract and retain the best employees. As a result, it is important that newly-hired employees fully understand and maximize their benefits plan. We help by implementing a process that educates employees about their benefit options, and also invite and welcome spouses to engage in the process.

Employee Election Updates
Important task takes on higher priority
The task of updating employee dependent elections can become buried within a busy HR department. Therefore, we help administer these kinds of tasks, which improves HR’s productivity by allowing HR to focus on more critical tasks.

Quarterly Eligibility Audits
What are you paying for?
Are you paying for employees who are no longer in your workforce? A Quarterly Eligibility Audit is necessary to make sure you are not paying for coverage for employees who are not eligible, who have left the company or who have opted out of your company’s health plan. Our process creates a streamlined approach to ensure accuracy.

Paperless HR Operation
Automated environments provide rapid results
Do you desire a more streamlined and efficient HR department? Industry leading companies leverage our automation tools to help achieve this goal. For instance, a paperless environment leverages the automated process by integrating recruitment, enrollment and employee performance reviews to improve accuracy.
