Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) December 15, 2011
The Kennion Group, a global consulting, administrative services and outsourcing company that has been in operation since 1969, today announced the appointment of Julie Dollar as Director of Account Management. Dollar was previously Director, Operations/Provider Relations at The Kennion Group.
“Julie has been affiliated with my company for over 15 years and we are excited to have her leading a team focused on our clients during this period of growth,” said Hal Shepherd, CEO of The Kennion Group. “Her group will provide client-dedicated support across the Employee Benefits, Human Resources, Insurance, Payroll and Risk Management areas of our business.”
The Kennion Group’s growth has been fueled by health care reform and the affects of the tight economy. As changes in the U.S.’s national health care system continue to develop, The Kennion Group has seen an increase in the number of new clients specifically concerned about how health care reform will impact their businesses in the short and long term.
“Businesses need help managing the burden of health care costs,” said Shepherd. “Our defined contribution approach and proven administration helps companies manage benefit dollars and deliver value to their employees.”
In recent years, The Kennion Group has also seen double digit growth in their HR Outsourcing Services. In the U.S., Human Resources Outsourcing is the fastest-growing segment of business process outsourcing (BPO). “I think the growth is driven by the economy and our client’s desire to save money and align their staff with value-generating activities,” said Dollar. “At the end of the day they want access to greater expertise and a single point of delivery.”
The Kennion Group known for their award winning client support recently gave iPads to their Premier level clients in order to give them real time best-in-class service. “Our team is always looking for new ways to use technology to deliver our services and we feel our client iPads push this home,” said Dollar. The Kennion client iPads are part of Kennion KonnectTM, a powerful and award winning employer and employee support platform. The platform includes a suite of offline, online and mobile support services including an award winning call center and online ticketing system.
