As a human resource professional we know the importance of your time and the value of supporting your team.
Our goal is to deliver a cost-effective and time-efficient employee benefit package to our clients.
As a professional, it is important that you stay in touch with updates and innovations in your field. There is a list of human resources at the end of this page you may find helpful. Resources for HR
We respond quickly to claim, benefit, and enrollment issues. The One-Two-Three Service Plan is HIPPA compliant.
One. Within the first hour of a critical issue Jesse Consulting will have contacted the relevant parties such as the insurance company, hospital, doctor’s office, pharmacist, and our client regarding status of the situation.
Two. Within the first two hours of a less critical issue the relevant parties are contacted along with our client and given a briefing.
Three. Within the first three hours of a non-critical issue the relevant parties are contacted and our client is contacted within 48 hours with the pertinent information.
We work directly with employees and advocate on their behalf always referencing our clients’ policy. We understand the claim process can be stressful and we strive to make it as smooth as possible.
Plan Analysis, Negotiation, and Implementation
Each plan, new and renewing, is unique and cannot be rubber-stamped. We review them line-by-line every year. Our process includes our clients’:
- Budget and goals for profit;
- Funding risk tolerance, such as fully or self-funded choices;
- Geographic locations, including international;
- Culture within the workplace;
- Employee Benefits group and voluntary; and
- Executive policies.

- Surveys for employees, online and confidential;
- Executive policy audit;
- Open enrollment collateral for employees; and
- Group meetings, in person and online.
We work closely with our client on each of these steps within these time frames, whenever possible:
Step One: Review, 6 - 12 months in advance
- Current policy review;
- Budget review;
- Goals, current and each year thereafter;
- Survey for employees; and
- Executive policy audit.
Step Two: Decide, 4 - 6 months in advance
- Enrollment and eligibility; decide if eligibility applies to employees, their children, and/or spouses/domestic partners;
- Cost share, determine the appropriate amount for the employer and employee; and
- Employee benefits, specify the choices of the group and voluntary plans.
Step Three: Implement, 3 - 4 months in advance
