Group Employee Benefits

We design and manage group benefits programs that prioritize the health and wellness of your employees.

Protect Your Employees with the Right Benefits Plan

A well-designed employee benefits plan will contribute to higher employee satisfaction, retention, and recruitment success. Do your employees view your investment in benefits as a valuable part of their compensation package, or do they take them for granted?

Penmore’s Group Benefits Team focuses exclusively on employee benefits. Our decades of experience and long-standing relationships with Canada’s leading and most innovative insurers enable us to design benefits plans that are tailored to your organization’s unique demographic and aligned with your goals and financial considerations.

Benefits Audit

We review your existing programs. Based on our review, we prepare a report detailing the results of the audit and clearly articulate the recommendations.

Plan Design Consulting

We advise on new developments in employee benefits and recommend incorporation of these options into your existing benefits program. Solutions are based on market comparisons and benchmarking.


We negotiate your renewal rates. Our spreadsheets detail your current renewal along with alternatives. The implications to your plan’s costs and its benefits are explained, to ensure the greatest value for your benefits dollar.

Plan Marketing

We gather and review information for submission to a specific list of insurance carriers. We analyze all proposals and prepare a benefits and cost comparison


Customer service is our key differentiator. We assist with conflict resolution of claims, billing, enrolment/terminations and general administration.

Plan Communication

Communication of the implementation, plan design, or and plan amendments to employees is crucial in managing employee benefits programs. We prepare employee communication materials and facilitate education sessions with them to ensure a clear understanding of the program.

Who We Work With

We know that companies care about their employees, whether it’s one or one thousand. Penmore Benefits’ Consultants work hand in hand with our clients to design group employee benefits programs that focus on their needs.
