The Partnership Leverages Keating Advisors’ Benchmarking Analysis to Improve Coverage Design and Implementation
Washington, D.C. (January 10, 2017) – Risk Cooperative, a specialized insurance and risk advisory firm is pleased to announce a partnership with Keating Advisors, a strategic human resource consulting firm, specializing in benefits and compensation benchmarking, organizational development and performance management. Founded by Kim Keating, an entrepreneurial business leader and graduate of Harvard Business School, Keating Advisors ensures middle market firms remain competitive and compliant in attracting, retaining and motivating their talent.
The partnership leverages Keating’s more than 20 years of helping middle market firms understand and stay ahead of the competitive labor market. With the specter of continued healthcare complexity, rising direct and indirect costs and the potential repeal of all or parts of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), middle market employers with resource constrained human resources teams are particularly vulnerable to these forces. Risk Cooperative, through its Comprehensive Benefits practice, and Keating Advisors have developed robust solutions to help middle market firms stay ahead of the curve, contain costs and retain employees.
“For far too long the design and placement of employee benefits and related insurance programs has been on a downward spiral of value and an upward spiral of costs. For one of the largest cost items in many companies’ budgets, I am excited to partner with RC, a firm that applies creativity and technology to the insurance brokerage and plan design process and their Comprehensive Benefits practice,” said Kim Keating, founder and CEO of Keating Advisors, of this new partnership.
“Risk Cooperative remains committed to challenging convention in the insurance and risk-transfer markets. Keating Advisors and their experienced team bring precisely the type of experience, best practice research, and market insights we need to help our customers remain competitive in a demanding environment. Leveraging our global brokerage and insurance design capabilities, along with Keating’s benchmarking and analytical strength, will enable us to provide actionable HR strategies that can not only contain costs and improve employee engagement, but drive a real ROI from such a substantial investment,” said Dante Disparte, Risk Cooperative’s founder and CEO.
