Employee Benefits Solutions

From The Bailey Group

For the last 20 years we have been helping organizations like yours protect and retain your most important asset – your employees. Here's how we do it:

Laser-Like Focus on Benefits

We made the decision nearly 20 years ago to make employee benefits our core focus. And in hindsight, that was the best decision we could have made. The Affordable Care Act is a compliance nightmare waiting to happen for your organization – and you need a partner that is dedicated to helping you take on that challenge.

Local Firm With a National Presence

While our roots are firmly set in the Nation's Oldest City, we have earned the opportunity to provide benefits to over 300 group clients covering more than 61,000 employees located across the United States.

Sky-High Client Retention

There is no customer satisfaction metric more important than client retention. We are proud of the fact that our client retention has remained high through all of the turmoil and change the Affordable Care Act has created.

Our Incredible Team

We employ some of the best and brightest talent in the business. Almost all of our associates are licensed. And those that aren't typically get their license within the first 6 months of working at The Bailey Group.

"Over the last couple of weeks I have relied on your staff to assist me with a number of projects, and as usual, their performance and responsiveness has been outstanding. I am sure you are aware of the quality of people you have."

Ron Roy, Ring Power

"The Bailey Group is a value added partner in our business. As a not-for-profit healthcare and charitable service organization, we employ a workforce of more than 260 people. The products and services provided by The Bailey Group are outstanding."

Dr. Larry Lake, Bayview

"I wanted to make sure you knew of the valuable asset you have in Andrea. I just became aware of the extraordinary level of customer service she provided to one of our employees. It is obvious that Andrea truly cares for the people she supports and her commitment and dedication to her job is apparent."

Dan, HR Director

"We researched and chose The Bailey Group when we moved our headquarters and manufacturing facility to St. Augustine 12 years ago. We have continued with them every year as they have the best service and rates you could find. Not just local but nationwide. Rulon loves the service that The Bailey Group provides."

Matthew Robison, Rulon

"I am always amazed each year by the outstanding work & dedication of The Bailey Group family. I must call you family because the term 'consultant group' does not apply to you. Every year, each of you dedicates more time, money, and awesome customer service to our staff. I could not accomplish any of this without all of you."

Margot, HR Director

Step 2
Create a Wellness Committee

We'll provide you with a comprehensive toolkit that will help in your committee's development. We can also be there to chair and facilitate committee meetings.

Step 3
Data Collection

This is a critical step in order to ensure your program has maximum employee participation and is tailored to your population's wants and needs.

Want to know the key to your wellness program's success? Strategy. We'll help you develop a 3 – 5 year strategy so that it's crystal clear where your program has been and where it's going in the future.

Step 5

This is the fun part. We'll help you initiate effective interventions with your employees through disease management education, interactive health promotion programming and corporate weight management programs.

Step 6
Develop a Healthy Culture

We will help your organization develop a healthy culture by reviewing and identifying policies that may be serious stressors to your employee population.

Step 7
Evaluation

This is the stage where we find out what your return on investment has been. We'll also continue to track and supervise your program to make sure we are meeting the goals established during step 4.

Not looking for benefits, but in need of health promotion for your company?

You're in luck! Let us focus on what we do best so that you can focus on your strengths.
