Areas of Expertise

  1. Strategic Compensation and Benefits Visioning – We are regularly engaged and empowered by owners, shareholders and C-suite executives to explore total compensation and benefits programs and provide recommendations and solutions to meet, grow, and sustain the defined corporate objectives.   
  2. Self-Insuring Consultation -  Commonly referred to as partially self-insuring or Administrative Services Only (ASO) agreements.  ASO is specific to a few common employer sponsored benefits, including health care, dental, vision, and short-term disability.  This financing option, as compared to that of the traditional fully insured model, has grown rapidly over the last several years.  This growth can be largely attributed to the Federal Health Care Reform legislation, which imposed fees and taxes that can be eliminated in an ASO model. 
  3. Technology - BFG has scaled and leveraged their technology platform to provide clients of all sizes and in all locations with a user-friendly experience for their executive and administrative teams, as well as their employee populations.  This technology provides for 24/7 access to company sponsored benefits, real-time employee election and enrollment, singular enrollment for multi-plan or multi-carrier options, aggregate and singular invoicing, and more.
