McGrawWentworth helps clients align their benefit programs with their people strategies and business objectives.

They focus on mid-sized organizations that have from 100 to 10,000 employees tend to have the same problems as Fortune 1000 companies, but they have to face those problems with the resources of a much smaller organization. Such companies may also have outgrown their current insurance consultant yet cannot afford the big international consultants with the knowledge and resources they need.

That’s where McGraw Wentworth can help. They are large enough to offer you all of their resources of a world-class international consultant but at economical prices. At the same time, they are small enough to give you the personal, quick-response service you must have to stay competitive.

They put their Vision into action via their Benefit Stewardship Process and Three Discipline Team approach.
