Specialists in Your Corner

Our methodical process begins with us getting to know your business and discussing your priorities and challenges. We’re not just planning for your renewal—we work with you to create a long-term strategic roadmap to meet your goals. Plus, you get guided implementation and monitoring to ensure the program fits your needs.

We make sense of your data. With Woodruff Sawyer’s approach to analytics, you get more than just numbers in tables—you’ll understand the reasons behind cost trends and fluctuations. Using these insights, we’ll help you take control of your benefits spend, turning your data into strategy and providing the coverage your employees need.

Our benefits compliance specialists and ERISA attorneys keep you updated and demystify the legal and regulatory complexities. You’ll get practical solutions, including an integrated compliance calendar with built-in reminders, audits, and guides with templates to help you stay up to date.

Imagine all your benefits documents, deadlines, and communications in one easy-to-access location. WS Connect provides a consolidated benefits platform that brings order to your benefits program. Our custom-built platform centralizes your program activities and streamlines collaboration with your colleagues and your Woodruff Sawyer service team. 

We help you get your employees’ attention with strategic planning to engage and educate them about their benefits year-round. Our communications experts partner with you to uncover the methods that work best for your organization—because we know how frustrating it is when a carefully planned program goes unnoticed.

We work to understand your benefits administration needs and provide unbiased advice on vendor options and the latest tech. That could mean adjusting your current systems, sourcing new systems, and ​troubleshooting issues.

Our specialized team addresses the full suite of considerations around retirement plans. This includes plan options that can minimize your administrative and fiduciary responsibilities, and therefore your risk. We help you craft a retirement plan and financial wellness program for your employees that results in a financially strong workforce.

​​Wherever business takes you, we can manage your benefits. We own the process, managing all the details to ensure you’re engaged in best practices and compliance worldwide. With careful planning and diligent follow-through, we make sure your people worldwide are covered.​
