The Situation

BCR had previously provided both compensation and benefits consulting services to this client. When faced with the departure of a senior member of their Human Resources staff, the company called on BCR for assistance. Using BCR’s talent resource offering, the company currently engages with one of our consultants on an extended assignment. Our consultant functions as an extension of company staff and brings significant expertise and project management skills to the company on a non-headcount basis.

The Deliverables

  • Bring subject matter expertise to an extremely lean Human Resources function.
  • Provide project management skills to help support company and department objectives and initiatives.
  • Understand the company’s current and future compensation design/cost needs and requirements.
  • Design and deliver plans and programs that are valuable to our employees, are competitive with the marketplace and are cost-effective.
  • Develop policies, procedures and systems that promote compliance and better administration.

The Results Achieved

  • Obtained subject matter expertise and project management skills on a non-headcount basis.
  • Supported compensation and benefits initiatives more economically than with a full-time position hire.
  • Redesigned plans and programs in response to health care reform, rising benefit costs and business objectives.
  • Improved third party benefit vendor selection and management.
  • Managed annual enrollment process, from plan redesign and pricing, to communications, to third-party administrator oversight.
  • Provided corporate transaction assistance with successful integration of acquired company and divestiture of another business.
  • Managed compliance for plan documentation, filings, and audits.
  • Reviewed policies, procedures and plans for inefficiencies and gaps; recommended and implemented changes, as appropriate.
