GROUP CONSULTING SERVICES

Combine your knowledge and goals for your business with our technical expertise on corporate benefit plans, and the result is satisfied employees and the best return on your human, intellectual and financial capital.


Our method is structured but flexible. We use our own unique GAPP Process in the design, implementation and on-going management of employee benefits. GAPP stands for Goals, Actual Results, Possibilities and Priorities.

The GAPP Process

Listening closely to our clients ensures a “no guessing” approach. We undertake a thorough analysis of your benefit goals and priorities before we recommend an action plan for your business. We look for any gaps in your current employee and executive benefit programs and illustrate the positive outcome of closing those gaps.

Our objective is to be an extension of your team, to challenge the usual thought process and provide proactive, unbiased ideas to help you maximize the return on important human capital. PPI’s experience and expertise in tax and financial planning helps us to provide a truly customized solution for your employees and executives.

Goals


Our consultants engage you in a process of discovery that allows for the identification and definition of your benefits objectives, or Plan Purpose, which may include one or more of:

  1. the attraction and retention of quality employees
  2. flexibility
  3. tax efficiency
  4. an adequate level of protection for all employees
  5. the ability to control costs


Actual Results


Using proprietary tools, surveys and benchmarking, we evaluate and analyze your current employee and executive benefit plans to understand where improvements can be made and identify inconsistencies between existing programs and the goals you define.


Possibilities


We continuously look for ways to achieve significant improvements in results relative to plan goals. The creation and continuous service of benefit plans are based on five pillars that are fundamental to a successful program:

  1. Risk Mitigation
  2. Tax Efficiency
  3. Cost Containment
  4. Innovation
  5. Communication


Priorities


We present an actionable plan to help you focus resources where they will have the greatest impact, outlining steps for continuous improvements over time. Regular and thorough ongoing management of your program aims to enhance the health and productivity of your team.
