A health and wellness program should be more than a mention of “group medical insurance” on a job description. We enjoy partnering with clients that challenge it to become something more. Something that adds true value to their organization.

Here’s a few of the reasons clients partner with us year after year for benefits consulting:

We enjoy partnering with clients that challenge it to become something more.

Our programs are data-driven & unique to your workplace.

A smoking cessation program on a workforce of 99% nonsmokers is a waste. By analyzing your unique business attributes, we can present smart cost-containment strategies that are most likely to reduce your claims — and your rates — over the long term.

Our benefits consultants make your job easier.

We manage every aspect of your program needs — from consultation and education to health management, benefits administration, advocacy and compliance. This streamlines your workflow, optimizes your success and keeps you current as regulations evolve.

Fun, friendly tools engage your employees.

We help you communicate in the way employees — particularly the tech savvy — like to consume information. Tools like Meet Alex engage them in managing their own health. Or, perhaps you’d like your team to receive our monthly wellness newsletter, Live Well. Work Well. Contact us now to be added to our wellness newsletter subscription list.

We spend our time more productively.

Most brokers burn up a lot of time handling reactive tasks like claims and billing problems, leaving less time to focus on the “big picture” of your business. P&J takes a different approach:


50% of our time is spent on proactive strategic planning and implementation activities


25% on marketing, procurement and implementation of your program


25% on servicing your needs with claims, billing issues and the like

How can we help you?

A true benefits partner understands the unique needs of different players across the benefits landscape. From optimizing the workplace for more engaged employees to reducing claims and containing costs, P&J helps derive the greatest value from your benefits program.

Going beyond benefits to help clients succeed.
