Managing Employee Benefits Risk

The direct and indirect factors that affect the total cost of your employee benefits program are employee benefits risks.


Direct risks that impact the pricing of your medical insurance program include the health of your workforce population, forecasted usage and how efficiently the program is utilized. Indirect cost drivers are numerous and can represent as much as 50% of the cost of your entire employee benefits expense. These are costs associated with employee turnover, absenteeism, presenteeism, HR and benefits compliance, and increased regulatory enforcement, taxes and fines.


The Lyons Companies benefits platform integrates health risk management, compliance, HR and business service strategies that result in administrative relief, richer benefits options, lower liabilities and systemic improvements that lead to higher productivity.


Program elements include:

Benefits management

Health risk management and wellness programs

Health advocacy

Government compliance

Workforce education and communications



Each of these plan elements is designed to address employee benefits risk and to empower management and employees to make decisions that produce better outcomes and increase performance.
