Core Service Areas
- Employee Communications
- HR Administrative Support & Service
- Retirement Planning and Financial Wellness
These core service areas represent the foundational strategic components of properly servicing a modern employee benefits program.
Strategy consists of developing a 3-5 year plan predicated on your company’s human capital goals and challenges. This is the starting point for us in any engagement – it assures that both Horton and the plastic goods manufacturer maintain consensus with the purpose and direction of the program.
Employee Communications consists of our subjective and strategic initiatives. We believe that better health-educated employees will result in better risks to your health plan, and we work to actively inform employees on the best use of healthcare and benefits. This also includes all open enrollment-related services for plastic goods manufacturers, such as hosting and distributing presentations, webinars and onsite visits, to ensure employees (as well as their dependents) are in the best position to make decisions about their benefits. This includes custom benefit guides, compensation statements and unhindered access to our staff of professionals to navigate their benefit selections and enrollments best.
HR Administrative Support
HR Administrative Support reflects a common phrase at Horton: we want you to view us as an extension of your HR team. There are countless challenges brought on in modern healthcare and employee benefits that we gladly absorb on behalf of our clients. Combined with your industry, these challenges become more significant. It starts with Basic Service. Refer the problems to us to resolve the bigger issues, so we can help prevent them in the future. Also, our HR Administrative Support category includes managing enrollment, quarterbacking employee-life-cycle workflows, interfacing with payroll and related vendors, and countless other functions typically absorbed by the modern HR department.
We are heavily invested in wellness because we understand that a healthy and engaged workforce is a productive workforce. We also immensely emphasize the importance of identifying conditions at their earliest stage. As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and there is no area more evident of this truism than wellness. Our team of wellness professionals serves as ongoing advisors regarding your company’s wellness approach. Beyond assistance with biometric screenings and lunch and learns, our services focus on integrating wellness that directly affects the plastic goods manufacturer’s approach to risk transfer and risk management. Ultimately, our internal wellness team serves as an additional arm of our client’s wellness initiatives. They will work with you to achieve successful results and offer various services, from basic program design to establishing program metrics.
Retirement Planning and Financial Wellness
Retirement Planning and Financial Wellness is a service we offer through our integrated Retirement advisors, Cerity Partners. This is a sincerely unique service offering in our industry, as Cerity has a dual specialty in retirement compliance and planning. Cerity actively mitigates plan sponsor Fiduciary Liability while routinely lowering the retirement-based administrative costs by focusing strategies around independent, institutional funds generally not offered by retail-based retirement advisors. We have partnered with Cerity on the premise that retirement challenges and needs have grown in tandem with similar issues in healthcare. In other words, we promote the concept of Financial Wellness in the same light as Physical Wellness.
