Our Clients

The Segal Group is unique because we have fully developed practices in distinct client markets:

  • Corporate and nonprofit 
  • Public Sector (provincial and federal)
  • Multi-employer plans

More than eight million employees and their dependents in the U.S., Canada and abroad are covered by benefit programs sponsored by Segal's thousands of clients in the private, public and nonprofit sectors. Our clients range in size from several hundred employees to more than 400,000 employees.

Relationships Built on Trust

At Segal, we know trust is critical to achieving success  between members and their unions, between workers and employers, between trustees and their advisors, between our people and yours.

We don't take this trust lightly. Since our founding we've stood firmly rooted in a tradition as trusted advisors, focusing our resources on responding to your needs with the best that we have. We work with labor and management to determine the best options for the benefit program and its participants. That's how problems get solved: by working together with people you trust to create lasting solutions.

The Clients We Serve

We provide consulting services to more multi-employer benefits plans than any other firm.

Segal Consulting's Logo

Unlike benefit programs that are sponsored and controlled by employers for their own employees, multi-employer plans are essentially benefit programs sponsored and administered by boards of trustees made up of both labor and management, representing participants from many organizations.

Multi-employer programs serve a unique function by providing retirement, supplemental health care, disability and other welfare benefits to workers who might otherwise have no access to such benefits: those who move from employer to employer, are independent of any single employer or who work for small companies that are otherwise unable to offer such benefits.

Segal is a unique consulting firm

Successfully consulting to multi-employer boards of trustees requires a consulting firm skilled in labor-management issues. It requires consultants who are focused on, and experienced in, serving the complex needs of all the parties involved with multi-employer plans.

Segal is the only major consulting firm whose core business is dedicated to serving collectively bargained multi-employer plans. Our multi-employer research department is the standard in the industry, and our publications are commonly used as research tools by attorneys and other plan professionals.

We work with more multi-employer funds than our major competitors combined, in industries including:

     
  • Air and Transportation
  • Apparel
  • Baking
  • Chemicals
  • Construction
  • Electronics
  • Entertainment
  • Food

Segal is, and always has been, committed to your needs

Today, Segal is the undisputed leader in multi-employer benefits consulting, providing services to plans serving more than eight million people throughout the U.S. and Canada.

As our consultants interact with our extensive client base, we are able to develop a comprehensive view of the wide range of challenges our clients face. Our Multi-employer Leadership Group brings together a select team of our leading consultants who have more than 150 years of combined experience serving multi-employer benefit programs. This select group of senior consultants focuses on identifying multi-employer needs, meeting regularly to discuss emerging developments and issues in the multi-employer environment, and sharing knowledge of best practices with all of our consultants. This unique perspective shapes our consulting advice and enables us to deliver solutions that have the best opportunity for creating long-term success for all our clients.

Having an objective consulting approach means we have no stake in providing answers tied to products or pre-packaged solutions. While we draw on the resources and knowledge of the entire firm in our consulting assignments, our advice and guidance is tailored to the particular needs and circumstances of each client. By investing our resources and developing our expertise based on the current and emerging needs of our many multi-employer clients, we have a long track record of creating durable, innovative and flexible solutions.

Our consulting services and approach serve the largest public sector entities and municipal plans equally well.

The public sector is unique

You compete with the private sector for your best people  a situation that leads to critical challenges in recruiting and retaining top talent. Benefits are an interwoven part of total rewards and an important tool in building a relationship between employer and employee. Public sector employees tend to stay in their jobs longer and remain connected after employment through retirement benefits. Meeting the challenge of managing total rewards programs that meet both employee expectations and employer needs is our business.

Quality performance is the result of market leadership and objectivity

Having an objective consulting approach means we have no stake in providing answers tied to products or pre-packaged solutions. While we draw on the resources and knowledge of the entire firm in our consulting assignments, our advice and guidance is tailored to the particular needs and circumstances of each client. By investing our resources and developing our expertise based on the current and emerging needs of our clients, we have a long track record of creating durable, innovative and flexible solutions.

Private employers and Crown corporations recognize the expertise we bring to each assignment.

Sibson offers a comprehensive set of human capital consulting services. Working with organizations in many industries gives us the ability to provide insight to our clients across a broad spectrum of human resource and employee benefit issues.

We understand:

  • The pressures of increasing benefits costs and shrinking profit margins

  • The requirement to meet financial performance goals and exceed shareholders' or board of directors' expectations

Our collaborative consulting approach, combined with our objectivity, provides unique insights into your strategic objectives.

Our approach helps create lasting partnerships built on mutual trust, allowing us to enjoy client relationships that can be measured not just in months or years but in decades.

Although every organization is different, the questions surrounding employee benefits, compensation and other workforce related issues are often similar and are always important to the financial success and growth of your organization:

  • What can I do to keep my employees motivated and productive?
  • How can I make the most of my workforce and get the best return on investment in my people while achieving my strategic business goals?
  • How will I answer to both the bottom line of the business as well as the ever-changing needs of my employees?

These questions are difficult, but finding the right answers is where we excel.

In addition to our benefits and HR-related services, multi-employer, public sector and private employers as well as financial intermediaries benefit from the investment solutions and in-depth research provided by Segal Rogerscasey Canada professionals.
