Employee Benefits Management


When we first opened our doors in 1854, employee benefits as we know them today were nonexistent. Workers put in 65-70 hour weeks. Modern day labor laws covering hours, wages, and safety did not exist. Health insurance, unemployment, sick days, and vacation time didn’t evolve until decades later. In 1938, Franklin Delano Roosevelt established the first federal minimum wage at 25 cents an hour.


Today, employee benefits are a vital component of the employment compensation package, including both statutory benefits – those mandated by federal, state or local laws – and optional benefits, offered by the employer to attract and retain employees. With today’s profusion of benefits, things are vastly more complex. Employers face a labyrinth of employment laws, compliance issues, policies, processes, and tracking.


At Gilbert’s Risk Solutions, whether we’re serving a Pennsylvania technology firm with a half dozen programmers or a manufacturer with hundreds of workers, our goal is the same: to become your one-stop expert partner as an adjunct to your internal Human Resources department.

Just some of the employee benefits we offer include:


  • Insured and Self-Funded Health Insurance
  • Consumer-Driven Health Plans
  • Long and short-term disability insurance
  • Dental Insurance
  • Vision Insurance
  • Long-term Care Insurance
  • Life Insurance
  • Section 125 Plans
  • Voluntary Benefits
  • Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
  • Wellness Programs

Our goal is to be your outsourced risk management partner

Business owners know that there’s always something that can go wrong.  Whether it’s a production delay due to a problem in the supply chain or a worker injury on the plant floor, you need to protect your operations, your productivity, and your bottom line. Gilbert’s Risk Solutions can help.

We’d like to be the outsourced Human Resources partner for your Pennsylvania business

We offer a full complement of benefits from the nation’s premier insurance partners, and our experienced Pennsylvania employee benefits consultants can help you develop a package that is right for your workers and your budget. Our approach is consultative and solutions based.

Value added

In addition to your having access to our highly experienced benefits and HR consultants, we think you need another layer of protection. A 2015 study reported that U.S. employers have about a 12% chance of an employee claim that could result in a lawsuit. Compliance, documentation and HR best practices are your main defense. That’s why we provide our Employee Benefit clients with state-of-the-art technology, trainings, and tools at no additional cost.

HRIS: Gilbert’s Benefit Portal

We provide our employee benefit clients access to our Gilbert’s Benefits Portal, a robust Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS). This cutting-edge technology tool allows you year-round, paperless benefit administration, including on boarding and new employee enrollment, benefits administration, PTO tracking, payroll and benefits integration, templates for job descriptions and handbooks, and much, much more.

HR Compliance

Our benefit clients have complete access to HR360, an online compliance resource offering step-by-step guidance and tools, including federal and state labor law posters, 500+ forms, and more. It affords at-your-fingertips access to laws related to the Affordable Care Act (ACA) , FMLA, COBRA, HIPAA, harassment and discrimination, leave laws, immigration laws, benefit laws, file maintenance laws and more.
