We offer a variety of services and resources to support your Human Resource managers and staff. In today’s economy, HR departments are being asked to do more and more with less. Our clients take full advantage of our resources that help relieve administrative burden so you can focus on the well-being of your staff.
C.T. Hellmuth & Associates focuses on more than just the tangible elements of communicating employee benefits programs. We get to know you, your culture, and employee population so we can diagnose any communications gaps and put together a strategic marketing plan. For example, a hospitality services company will have different communications needs and expectations than a technology firm; we look to incorporate innovative ideas and solutions that meet your specific needs.
All of our clients receive our basic communications services: employee presentations and webinars, written communications and announcements, benefits fair support, etc. These services are broad-based and flexible. Employers who want to take their communications strategy to the next level have the option of developing custom materials and campaigns.
Our communications strategy takes a consultative approach to employee benefits communications by creating campaigns that meet identified goals and initiatives. We are equipped with the resources and expertise to provide communications services in the following areas:
- Online Enrollment and Communications
- Written/printed communications (booklets, letters, memos, inserts, etc.)
- Fulfillment (printing, sorting, and mailing)
- Secure mailers
- Proofreading and editing
- Mobile Phone Applications
We understand the far-reaching impact that poor employee health can have on a company’s bottom line. Our approach to health care cost and productivity management includes execution of a proactive wellness strategy that focuses on the business case for wellness, incorporates best-practices, and is customized to the unique needs and culture of each employer.
The goal of our workplace wellness strategies is to:
- Mitigate increasing healthcare costs by engaging employees and family members in health improvement
- Support our clients’ healthcare strategy with shared responsibility for health among employees and their families
- Create a corporate culture for our clients that embraces and supports good health
CT Hellmuth will assist your HR team in developing, implementing, and maintaining a wellness program that is customized for your organization and your employees.
Offering a superior portfolio of employee benefits is essential to attracting and maintaining the most desirable workforce possible. With the benefits landscape in a perpetual state of flux, C.T. Hellmuth & Associates, Inc. is dedicated to ensuring that our clients are informed of, and in compliance with, the latest governing regulations and guidance. We strive not only to be responsive to the needs of our clients but to anticipate those needs as well. As part of this effort, we offer the Technical Monograph, a regular newsletter prepared for our clients and associates, which examines recent regulatory developments in the benefits field. In addition, we periodically conduct informative seminars, webinars and conference calls to facilitate further understanding of critical benefits matters as the need arises. Through the use of email alerts, we are able to keep our clients current on matters relating to employee benefits as soon as they occur. We are more than happy to personally meet with our clients to discuss the specific issues that affect their benefit offerings.
Working in partnership with our clients, we will conduct a thorough Compliance Review. Once completed, the Compliance Review will allow us to address any outstanding issues and concerns. A Compliance Review encompasses the following elements:
- State and Federal Legislation and Regulation
- Health Care Reform

- Required Disclosures, Notifications, and Distributions
- ERISA Summary Plan Descriptions and Plan Documents
- HIPAA & Protected Health Information
- COBRA & Continuation of Health Coverage Rights
- Group Term Life Insurance Tax Liability
- Sec. 125 Pre-Tax Cafeteria Plans
Upon completion of the Compliance Review, we will create a comprehensive compliance calendar, which will enable us to keep our clients apprised of filing, notification and distribution deadlines.
