Authored by Bukaty Companies on July 2, 2019

We’ve refreshed Bukaty.com to showcase all we do to keep your business on track. Learn for yourself how we use technology, data analytics and communication services to help you build and manage a quality, cost-effective employee benefits package. These tools recognize that benefit management has evolved from a focus on cost shifting and benefit reduction to a reliance on medical and prescription data to guide strategic benefit decisions.

Our HR Consulting division also has a new home on our website highlighting our expanded HR services. As our clients have identified HR needs that can’t be affordably provided in-house, we’ve responded with cost-effective, sensible solutions. Whether you’re a startup or an established business with an HR team, our services can be tailored and priced to meet your needs.

Looking for a quick overview on trending topics affecting the HR and benefits world? Visit our growing podcast library, To The Point. Hosted by Managing Director Mary Amundsen, podcast topics address new overtime rules, narrow network myths and referenced-based pricing.
