Philosophy

We measure our success by our ability to ease our clients' HR administrative and financial burdens, while at the same time delivering truly competitive employee benefits packages

Some people refer to us as an employee benefits broker, or an employee benefits advisor, but our goal is to be considered an invaluable employee benefits consultant to our clients.

Our mission is to deliver innovative, impactful and tailored benefit solutions through fact-based strategic planning, insightful and actionable analytics, leading-edge automation solutions and award-winning communication materials.

We measure our success by our ability to ease our clients’ HR administration and financial burdens while at the same time delivering truly competitive employee benefits packages that assist our clients in employee recruitment and retention.

Managing employee benefits is not simply an annual activity centered around renewal season; it’s a year-round, on-going effort whereby every action lends itself to in-year cost savings and improvements in patient outcomes, as well as improved rate negotiations at the appropriate time.

As a privately-held company, one of our prime advantages is our nimbleness; we are not required to constantly seek board or shareholder approval, and can, therefore, adapt quickly to unexpected market changes (to which there are many - brought about most recently by the Affordable Care Act).  This brings a great deal of flexibility to our relationships and ensures our focus remains on our partner’s business goals and not those of a board or shareholders.

We consider our organization to be an extension of your employee benefits team, providing continuous focus on cost containment, customer service, communication, compliance, and wellness. We know and understand that healthcare strategies, which affect change, are critical to any organization, especially as trends evolve in our industry. Controlling costs, recruiting, retaining the best employees, and improving the lives of our customer’s employees and dependents are vital to achieving success.

Our holistic approach takes into consideration all the basic elements that impact plan performance including plan design, contributions, health care financing, clinical intervention, disease management, wellness and vendor/partner selection. We do this within the ever-changing landscape of healthcare reform. Our strategies address plan design, benefit plan consumers, employee and dependent behaviors, and ultimately plan costs. In addition, we take a long-term view of the changing dynamics in the marketplace; identify emerging costs drivers as well as savings opportunities.

As an innovative and strategic business partner, the JP Griffin Group is committed to providing lasting strategic solutions which compliment your company culture and are in alignment with your company's performance objectives. 

We see our role as one of an innovator, a benchmarking and best-practices advocate, a sounding board, and even a provocateur. We like to challenge current thinking, where necessary, but do so in a diplomatic fashion, in an effort to bring about relevant evolution and sometimes even revolution of approach, where warranted.

At the end of the day, we aim to be your trusted advocate in the marketplace and have an insatiable drive to land the right solutions for our partners and their people.
