Our model
360° COMMITMENT

Traditional employee benefit consultants focus mainly on brokerage transactions, often neglecting other critical areas needed to manage a benefits program effectively.

HCW is different. We are a full-service resource - your strategic counsel, team multiplier, expert resource, and passionate champion.

Our 360º Commitment model helps organizations think and work strategically to maximize the substantial investment they are already making in providing employee benefits.

Our work starts with
proactive strategic planning.

We believe an effective benefits strategy must be tightly aligned with overall corporate strategy. We work to deeply understand our client’s business objectives, then create a benefit strategy that supports them.

What our clients say:

The major benefit received working with HCW is that now we have a strategy. Prior to HCW, an annual price increase drove a reaction which often led us to plan design changes and cost shifting.

- Bruce Clarke, President, Capital Associated Industries

Our compliance efforts
keep clients safe.

We seek to remove the fear of the unknown. Our in-house attorneys are on the forefront of employee benefit law, and they ensure you are informed and up to date and equipped with the right tools. You’ll understand and know how to deal with issues before they occur.

What our clients say:

HCW’s compliance is world-class. We didn’t know the level of issues we had until we got them involved. Now we are confident we are in full compliance.

- Brian Allen, CEO/President, Precision Walls

With underwriting and risk
management, we ensure risk
and comfort level are aligned.

We provide the analysis that helps clients make informed business decisions about their plans based on facts. Then we help them develop and execute the strategy to optimize the plan’s financial and utilization performance.

What our clients say:

Many thanks for your guidance in benefit selections and helping our firm stay in compliance. We value Hill, Chesson & Woody as a strong business partner

- Marilyn Kapsch, Personnel Coordinator, Young Moore and Henderson, P.A

We conduct brokerage
transactions from the position
of a recognized market leader.

When HCW sends a plan to market, insurers and service providers pay attention and aggressively bid on the business. We conduct all traditional health and welfare brokerage transactions on behalf of our clients, and have the highest brokerage designations with the insurers in the marketplace.

What our clients say:

I always recommend HCW to other HR contacts for benefits broker services and will continue to do so. We have worked with HCW for 10-11 years now and have always been very pleased.

- Lorrie Carpenter, Business/HR Manager, Wake County Medical Society CHF

We help clients develop health management strategies that can improve employee health and lower plan costs.

Where there is risk, claims will follow. We use population health management on a micro basis to identify risk for our clients. From there we develop targeted initiatives to improve quality of life for the members and to mitigate costs for our clients.

What our clients say:

I firmly believe that the only significant way to reduce our healthcare costs is to help our employees stay healthy, and HCW is providing the roadmap for us to do that.

- Lee Stephenson, President, Stephenson Millwork Company

We streamline the complexity
of benefits administration.

We take the pain out of benefits administration and handle critical employee benefit issues on behalf of our clients. This reduces our clients’ liability and increases the time our clients and their teams have to focus on their primary business goals.

What our clients say:

Everyone I've encountered on the HCW team is extremely professional. They respond in a timely manner to my team's needs. I am very confident in the product and knowledge they provide. I highly recommend HCW's services!

- Donna Scott, Director of HR, McAdams

Our communication and education initiatives keep employees engaged and informed.

Employees won’t get the full value from their benefits unless they understand them. HCW helps our clients’ communicate with and educate their employees about their benefits, keeping them engaged and connected. By enhancing these outcomes, we increase the positive perception of their benefit plan.

What our clients say:

The major benefit received working with HCW is that now we have a strategy. Prior to HCW, an annual price increase drove a reaction which often led us to plan design changes and cost shifting.

- Bruce Clarke, President, Capital Associated Industries
