Really Great Employee Benefits Overview

Really Great Employee Benefits helps companies become "Employers of Choice"

RGEB uses the MORE System to Maximize Organizational Return on Employees using the following process:


We facilitate decision making first with a thorough review.

We look at your organizational strategy, benefits program, HR practices, HR compliance to get a complete picture of your current situation.


Analyzing all the information, we look for the overall effectiveness of programs in comparison to company goals.

We also look at your program from a benchmarking perspective to see how you are stacking up against local and/or industry competition.


During this process, we get to know each other and see if we have a cultural fit between our organizations because we get really in-depth with our clients.

We also need to see a fit for being able to bring you better business solutions than you currently have, helping you create a greater experience for your employees.


Once we both see everything from culture to goals to projected outcomes in alignment, we begin implementing our recommended plans.
