What We Are Doing? by Mark Etherington

In following the theme of Paul Etherington’s Trusted Advice post entitled, “What we are Seeing”,  our focus over the last year has been to assist our corporate employee and executive benefit and pension clients to fully understand and utilize the options within their plans in light of the changing work environment; range of government benefits; corporate financial challenges and employee needs.

Mental Health and Stress Assistance through E-counselling services; 24/7 on line Healthcare consultations; premium deferrals; integration with and qualification for government benefits; preventative, diagnostic and information based concierge health care navigation availability; medical second opinions; retirement pension and saving plan investment reviews; temporary voluntary benefit adjustments and HR support have been our focus.

Any company’s benefit programs are a reflection of its mission statement. The past twelve months have necessitated “on the fly” revisions. Benefit alignment is crucial.

In this process our clients advise us that when their employees are healthy, their organization is as well; a dividend well received in these times.
