Nonprofit HR’s Blog

Nonprofit HR, a full-service consulting firm with offices in Washington, DC and Chicago, IL, announced today the creation of its Employee Benefits Practice. The company also announced the promotion of Julie Gallion, PHR, to head the new division.

“The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has many of our clients and colleagues in the nonprofit sector reviewing their employee benefits practices and policies,” said Lisa Brown Morton, President and CEO of Nonprofit HR. “While helping our clients assess their short and long-term needs, we have identified a gap between internal benefits plan management and benefits broker services that is costing organizations efficiency and money. There is a strong need for additional benefits planning and support.”

The firm’s new employee benefit consulting services include benefit needs assessment and philosophy development; audit and compliance services; benefits plan implementation and ongoing administration. Other services include forensic benefit reviews and analysis, competitive benefits assessments, and broker review/selection.

“Every organization, regardless of size, should thoroughly audit their benefits plans and administration periodically to make sure they are investing appropriately and in a way that helps attract and retain the talent they need to advance their missions,” said Morton. “Additionally, with the advent of ACA, ongoing administration and compliance will become increasingly more complex and nonprofits will need the guidance and counsel of experts in the benefits field.
