We get it. When it comes to benefits planning, there are a ton of choices out there. And, we believe we’re the most innovative company you’ll find. So here are five good reasons our clients choose to work with us:
We are not cookie-cutter. And neither is your solution. When you work with some benefits planning, HR consulting, or financial services firms, you know exactly what you’re going to get because it’s cookie-cutter. Every client gets the same solution. Not us. We know what’s right for others isn’t necessarily right for you. That’s why at Innovative, your solution is unique to your organization – and no one else’s.
Our name is more than just a name. We go by Innovative because it means creative and inventive. It means you get the solution that meets your unique needs. When your needs change, so will the solution we present. When you work with us you get a company that stakes our name and reputation on finding the best solution for our clients.
We build great benefits with employee happiness built-In. We’ve learned over many decades that a benefit strategy has to balance the needs of both your business and your employees. Too often, we see plans built without employee happiness in mind. The result? A high-priced solution no one likes. We know another way exists. With innovation and creative planning, we deliver great strategies that make our clients and their employees happy.
We believe in continuous improvement. We’ve never understood why companies stay with unoptimized benefit and retirement strategies. Your approach to benefits should be regularly analyzed, just like any other part of your business. We help you reveal the hidden costs in your benefit program, then we revisit what’s working and what’s not. So your plans remain optimized as your organization evolves.
Countless satisfied clients cannot be wrong. Since 1989, we’ve worked with countless businesses – businesses that span various industries, markets, and size. And, we’ve delivered customer satisfaction time and again. How? It all goes back to our core belief system. We believe people come first, and that one belief alone drives so much of our success – and our clients’.
So there you have it.
Why Innovative? If you’re looking for proven expertise, unparalleled service, and a long-term partner to help you navigate the ever-changing worlds of employee benefits, tax planning, retirement plans, and human resources, we should talk.
Feedback From Our Happy Customers
The Innovative team is well respected at AFS. My staff and I feel they are an extension of our HR team! Since implementation, they have always remained committed to assisting AFS with all of its healthcare needs; in fact, it doesn’t matter what time of day, they always respond in a timely manner.
Each year they come up with fresh material so our employee’s interest is always peaked. A few years ago, Innovative provided us with documentation to show that moving from a fully insured program to self-insured would be more cost effective for AFS, and it has been! Innovative has truly made our jobs easier so we can focus on other tasks.
As an HR professional, Innovative makes my job easier and benefits administration much less overwhelming than it would otherwise be.
They are truly a partner with me to make sure our team members have the best benefits and service around their benefits that we can offer. Innovative’s team is responsive, professional and resourceful. (They are at the forefront of knowledge in many areas, including ACA reporting and compliance, which can get highly complicated.)
As a client for the last 4 years, we love working with our Innovative Benefit Planning team because of their service model, scope , depth and quality of expertise in handling our benefits and renewals.
Their level of commitment just keeps getting better each year. They have more than met our expectations on renewal negotiations, response time, assistance with ongoing plans, open enrollment material, meetings, support, bill auditing, and wellness programs.
Since our partnership with Innovative Benefit Planning in 2017, it has been a seamless one. Innovative always provide options, suggestions and recommendations when it comes to our benefits renewal.
Innovative is always present even when open enrollment ends, their year round communication reminds me that I can always reach out for help at any time. Their professionalism is the utmost one can expect. My account representative Jenni is wonderful, courteous, knowledgeable and very helpful.
We have been dealing with Innovative Benefit Planning for many, many years. They have given us nothing but exceptional service.
We can pick up the phone or email them and they always resolve our questions and take care of our employees insurance issues in a very timely manner. They negotiate our insurance rates every year and have managed to reduce the increase every year. Every account manager we’ve had throughout the years have been great to work with.
I have been working with Innovative Benefit Planning for over six years. Previous to Innovative, I had used the same broker for about 25 years. I was used to doing everything myself during open enrollment with my previous broker.
When Innovative came on board, I was pleasantly surprised how “on top” of things they were. I never have to call them and bother them about getting rates to me for open enrollment, as they are in touch with our carriers on a regular basis, and they get me my information for open enrollment as soon as they receive it from the carriers.
