PACIFIC BROKERS offers packaged solutions to help manage your people and to streamline your business processes. Our services encompass Human Resource Support, Payroll and Employee Benefits.


Our Employee Benefit Packages are custom designed for each client. These financial “safety nets” assist employees and their dependents with the medical expenses incurred from an accident or a sickness, with the replacement of lost wages caused from these, with the financial burden to maintain good oral health and sight, as well as from an untimely death, and with the accumulation of money for the future.


Your annual budget per employee drives the design of your Core Benefits package.


Employee needs for financial “safety nets” always go beyond what your Core Benefits package can provide. That is why we offer the best available products in Supplemental / Voluntary Benefits. Get the Praise and Recognition for offering an Employee Benefit Package that is the best that it can be!


In our Optional Services, Benefit Package Administration can be made “Faster, Easier, Simply Better” with our web-based database. This platform not only is a repository for all of the data needed on employees, but also contains tools to administer your package. It has both HR and employee portals. Functionality includes “new hire enrollment”, “Open Enrollment” bill audit and employee “total benefit” statements. It pre-populates most enrollment forms with employee information and plan selection, ready for signature. It has extensive reporting capability and a simple import / export utility.


Our Online Human Resource Support Service includes most of the information you need to manage your "people" functions. To see an overview of these support services, see the Video.


The HR Advisor Newsletter is a monthly newsletter that is designed to keep you aware of the most current HR best practices and legal changes. The field of human resources is constantly-changing, and staying current with these important changes will help you grow and protect your business.

"Our Process with Employee Benefits"

 

It is always a challenge to balance the financial burden of benefit packages on employers while meeting employees' overall financial needs. The solutions for our clients are always unique to their specific circumstances. The steps, however, are always the same:

 

  • Establish your Goals and Objectives—financial and philosophical, by each “financial safety net”.
  • Match your Goals and Objectives with insurance carriers / financial product providers / vendors.
  • Obtain proposals.
  • Present alternatives by analyzing cost, disruption (loss of providers), plan features, and the impact of any change on your Human Resources Department as well as on employee morale.
  • Implement changes via meetings, memorandum, websites etc.
  • Establish an overall, on-going employee communication strategy.
  • Minimize Liability Exposures—audit all policies and documents, COBRA/HIPAA materials, administrative procedures and company communications, including employment and termination materials, your personnel manual and employee handbook.
