Health and Benefits

Employee Benefits

What key elements need to be considered so that you can provide both competitive employee benefits and transformative health management?

Employers are challenged to provide competitive benefits while transforming health management;

Organizations face multiple challenges and opportunities when providing their workforce with employee benefits. Kinghorn & Company recognizes this and has a multi-dimensional approach to help you address these issues.

We enable you to create employee benefit programs that drive engagement and apply a “design thinking and strategic alignment” approach for employers to deliver benefits that both engage employees and enhance their health.

• Provide competitive employee benefits. A multi-generational workforce demands personalized, creative, digital and flexible benefits. New employee benefit plan approaches are needed such as tying employee benefits to diversity and corporate social responsibility strategies and engagement. We create plan designs that attract and retain – tailored to your unique demographics, needs and cost constraints.

• Control cost and risks. Medical costs are increasing due to government regulations, aging populations, more consumption of healthcare and more expensive treatment. Large medical expense claims can be catastrophic in nature. Managing benefit programs while balancing all interests has become increasingly more difficult. Many programs do little to encourage employees to make “wise consumer” decisions about their healthcare and engage in the process. It is time to enable the employee to connect with the strategic goals of the plan, thereby optimizing the benefits spend and transform healthcare management.

• Simplify program delivery. Employers are looking to streamline HR administration and reduce complexity. In today’s digital age, employee benefit communication requires a more personalized and engaging experience. The strategic deployment of technology will enable HR resources to focus on more strategic initiatives.

Kinghorn & Company provides a range of consulting, brokerage and digital solutions to improve health outcomes and create accessible, affordable and quality employee benefits.

Voluntary Benefits

Voluntary Benefits Should Be Part of Your Core Benefits Strategy

Voluntary benefits are a creative way to help you meet more of your company’s and employees’ needs, allowing you to:

• Add flexibility: In today’s changing workforce, 70% of millennials and 59% of Gen X employees are looking for more flexible benefits.

• Drive employee engagement: One of Kinghorn & Company’s clients decreased their payroll tax liability by 200% when the company implemented a voluntary benefits program.

• Fill gaps and cut costs: Voluntary benefits can help control costs, improve compliance and fill coverage gaps for your employees.

The right voluntary benefits program can help companies save money and help employees fill gaps in their coverage. The client merely sponsors the program and the employee pays for the coverage. It all makes for more engaged and satisfied employees.

90% of middle-income American families aren’t confident they have enough savings to cover family emergencies.

• Critical Illness
• Hospital Indemnity
• Accident Insurance
• Cancer


Approximately 62% of Americans have less than $1,000 in their savings accounts.

Group insurance and disability benefits incorporate a wide range of life and disability coverage solutions to offer employees financial protection during times when they and their families need it the most. Companies offer benefits including:

• Short Term Disability
• Universal and Term Life Insurance
• Group Home and Auto
• Pet Insurance
• Long-Term Care Insurance
• Life Insurance
• ID Theft Protection
• Long and Short Term Disability Insurance
• Legal Services


50%-90% of key employees could lose their income if they rely solely on group disability.

Highly compensated employees are often unintentionally exposed to risk from group insurance and disability benefits that contain caps or do not include supplemental income such as bonus. Executive benefits can offer an additional layer of protection for this key employee group.
