An electric and gas utility company serving the Northeastern U.S. faced an enormous challenge in managing benefits administration for 15,000 active employees and 20,000 retirees, including 34 different unions and many â€œgrandfatheredâ€ programs. The companyâ€™s long-time, existing outsourced benefits administration provider was failing to manage benefits in an accurate and timely fashion, resulting in costly errors and growing employee dissatisfaction. Working with the companyâ€™s Employee Services group, Empyrean developed a comprehensive implementation plan that relies on Empyreanâ€™s client-adaptive technology platform and call center services to streamline online employee enrollment and ongoing benefits management.
