Objective Setting & Strategic Planning

In order to have a clear understanding of our clients’ short and long-term goals, we begin by gathering information. Here’s where the Benefit Stewardship Process™ really begins to help you, the client. The MMA Michigan team will:
  • Meet with key staff members for background information about your benefit plan trends, regulatory and tax environment, and vendor performance records.
  • Work with you to prepare a clean, written description of your objectives, with the aim of producing a formal, written strategic plan and service plan to outline objectives, set timetables, and assign task responsibilities to achieve the objectives.
  • Learn all we can about your culture, goals, strengths, and areas that need improvement.
  • Meet with HR and employee benefits staff members regularly to learn the details of your benefit program’s history, vendors, efforts at change, and current needs.
  • Develop a consistent approach for gathering employee comments, such as written surveys, focus groups, or establishing employee committees.
  • Develop your ideal mix of benefits and compensation to achieve a total compensation package that will help the organization recruit and retain the best employees.

They provide so much that they’ve made our life much easier and have assisted in the success of the HR department.
