Benefits Administration Centers of Excellence
Our objective is simple…to help our clients create the most effective benefits program possible for their organizations. To accomplish this, we provide best in breed solutions in the five critical components that make up of the benefits administration process.
Because each component is an important piece of the bigger picture, we break down each of these components and provide unequaled resources and services to define and accomplish all of your objectives.
Christi implements what we consider the most effective benefit planning strategies in our marketplace. We call this our “Stewardship” process. Stewardship is the critical process and methodology that enables our clients to evaluate and define what their goals and objectives are, creating the timeline to meet those objectives, and proving the measurements to know those objectives have been achieved.
The process centers on creating short-term and long-term strategies in every component of the benefits administration process that will consistently keep the benefits program moving in the direction of choice. Implemented programs become more effective using quality information and well designed planning strategies and controls.
The cornerstone of Christi is our employee advocacy and client service. Our goal is to make each and every employee’s experience the best that it can be. The underlying experience that an employee encounters has a tremendous impact on an employee’s perception of the value of a program. We provide a comprehensive resource for employees to access that will smooth out the bumps and hurdles they may encounter when using their benefits program in today’s marketplace.
