Excutive Compensation

The executive compensation and corporate governance landscape is in the midst of great change — and companies need to receive thoughtful, unbiased counsel. At Hewitt, our team of executive pay consultants provides just that — expert independent counsel to Boards of Directors and their Compensation Committees. We help Boards make informed decisions on complex executive compensation issues.

Hewitt helps clients establish sound corporate governance practices and design effective executive pay programs by combining our deep experience with proprietary compensation data. We help our clients design, manage, and monitor executive pay programs that make good sense, drive the right behaviors, are cost effective, and contribute to long-term business results while appropriately managing risk. Our core areas of expertise include:

Corporate governance.
We advise clients on sound corporate governance principles pertaining primarily to executive compensation issues. Sound corporate governance policies are essential — they provide corporate Boards with the framework that they need to make effective and defensible pay decisions.

Executive compensation philosophy and program design.

We assist our clients in developing an executive compensation philosophy based upon principles that reward sustained long-term corporate performance. In turn, we help clients design compensation programs consistent with their pay philosophy and supportive of their business strategy. Ultimately, the goal of well designed compensation programs is to improve business results by rewarding executives for achieving well-defined and appropriate performance goals.

Executive compensation analysis.

Our Total Compensation Measurement™ data is used by more than 50 percent of the FORTUNE 500. This global proprietary information helps us perform important comparisons to corporate peers in the areas of base salary, annual bonus, long-term incentives, and benefits.

Technical support.

We keep clients apprised of the latest regulatory developments and help them understand the impact of those regulations (e.g., tax laws, accounting standards, disclosure rules, exchange listing requirements, and corporate governance practices) on the design and operation of their compensation plans.

Employee Engagement

Low employee engagement is pervasive — nearly half of the world's employees are not engaged. This means that for every employee who is contributing to the success of your organization, there's another employee not putting forth maximum effort. Our research across more than 7,000 organizations indicates that each disengaged employee costs an organization an average of $10,000 in profit annually. Can you afford this hidden expense?

At Hewitt, employee engagement is a key performance metric used to measure the resilience and sustainability of your organization. We define "engagement" as the emotional and intellectual involvement that motivates employees to do their best work and contribute to your organization's success.

Hewitt is the leader in integrating engagement research with practical application. We pioneered the concept of employee engagement in the early '90s and have conducted surveys in more than 120 countries, in 60 languages, and in nearly every industry. To meet your organization's needs, we offer the following:

A complete solution — from survey design to reporting, action planning, and implementation
A range of standard and custom tools and practices to meet your strategic goals and budget needs
The largest and most robust engagement database, allowing you to clearly understand and benchmark your organization's engagement levels
Proprietary analytical techniques that provide clear direction on how to improve and maintain engagement levels — especially your high-performing and high-potential employees
An online reporting system that allows you to receive standard reports or access and analyze data to meet your specific needs
Research that can be used to supplement your own engagement work in specific areas like onboarding, leadership engagement, and exit and/or cultural assessments.
We also understand that creating a "high engagement" environment requires the involvement of multiple stakeholders — the organization (leadership, policies, and program), managers, and employees. Our approach is to actively involve each stakeholder group rather than make engagement the sole responsibility of the organization.

Hewitt has more than 150 engagement consultants in 35 countries to meet your local and global needs. We've worked with thousands of organizations and their employees to maximize engagement and drive strong performance. Whatever your needs, we have the experience, flexibility, and resources to help you achieve superior results. To learn more about how you can benefit from Hewitt's employee engagement research and consulting services, contact your local Hewitt consultant or e-mail us.

Absence Management

Absenteeism has a significant impact on total costs. While most recent cost-management efforts have focused directly on health care benefits, studies show that managing absence may actually be more effective in the long term.

Hewitt's Absence Management Solutions help you improve your financial and operational performance by minimizing the costs, impact on productivity, and risk associated with all forms of health-related absence. Our approach goes well beyond simply tracking absence after the fact. We help you understand why and where absence occurs and offer solutions that best address the underlying causes.

Our comprehensive absence management approach includes:

-Proactive customer service that focuses on your needs and those of your employees
-Highly effective return-to-work solutions
-Proprietary, Web-based technology that integrates data, analytics, case management, and communications

We bring together clinical management, prevention, communication, data analysis, and sophisticated reporting capabilities to make a measurable difference in absenteeism.
This approach has been proven to reduce absenteeism by as much as 30%, all achieved with a 90% employee satisfaction rate.

Health & Welfare

Deliver health care benefits efficiently and accurately

Sharply rising health care costs and the system's growing complexity are forcing many U.S. employers to take a hard look at how they deliver health care to employees. More and more, they're outsourcing health and welfare administration—controlling costs, enabling movement toward consumer-driven health care, and freeing staff to focus on HR programs that drive growth.

We're the leader in outsourced health and welfare delivery, handling the administration of health care for more than 7 million employees and retirees. From designing the very first flex plan to pioneering today's cutting-edge, consumer-driven health plans, we have a long track record of innovation and industry firsts.

Comprehensive Services
Our basic health and welfare administration services include:

-Full enrollment support including annual enrollment, new hires, and life events—with enrollment supported via the Internet or Customer Service
-Robust decision-support tools including health plan comparison charts, provider search, and cost estimators
-Eligibility reporting to carriers
-Complete reporting package—enrollments, census information, premiums, and more
-Integrated communications support

Hewitt also offers several additional services to provide you with flexibility to design an outsourcing solution that best meets your needs:

-Spending Account administration—Administration services for flexible spending accounts (FSAs), health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs), health savings accounts (HSAs), retiree health care accounts, transportation, tuition reimbursement, adoption assistance, wellness incentive programs, and other types of accounts.
-COBRA administration—Identify qualifying events, produce COBRA notices, enroll qualified beneficiaries, track COBRA coverage periods, bill qualified beneficiaries, and terminate coverage for nonpayment.
-Direct Billings and Payments—Hewitt handles the billing and collection of premium payments for retirees, COBRA enrollees, and other people not actively on the payroll.
-Advocacy—Advocates assist people with resolving access to care, claims, and other issues.
-Claim and Appeal services—A team of specialists provides client support for benefit claims and appeals.
-Dependent eligibility audit—Hewitt audits existing dependents and/or verifies eligibility for dependents being added to coverage. Each dependent management strategy is tailored for a client's unique situation and objectives and considers plan design, communication, target populations, appeals, and ongoing administrative procedures.
-Carrier premium payments—Hewitt authorizes fund transfers from client accounts to health and welfare carriers.
-Health plan eligibility services—Hewitt quickly transmits accurate eligibility and premium information from your organization to the insurance carriers you use, helping you save millions of dollars while improving service to employees and retirees.

Change-Enabling Technology
The robust platform powering our outsourced health and welfare administration enables innovative health care strategies, promotes employee self-management, and facilitates third-party interactions.

As health care becomes more complicated, it's important to ensure that employees can access the best information. Our online tools—from health plan comparison charts to health care cost estimators—ensure that employees get the right information to make the best and most cost-effective health care decisions.

And, since health care is a highly personal decision, we concentrate on providing high-touch solutions where participants need them most.

Please contact us to learn how our outsourcing solutions can put you in control of your benefit programs.
