In August 2016, I announced MRCT’s decision to join OneDigital Health and Benefits, one of the nation’s leading benefits advisory companies. We saw the move as an enhancement of what we’ve always done best—serve our clients and deliver forward-thinking strategies to help them succeed in an increasingly challenging world.
Since our partnership with OneDigital was focused on expanding our client resources and increasing the capacities of our local client service team, we decided not to make a shift to a new brand until 2017. This allowed us to focus our energy on client needs during our busiest season—4th quarter. We recognize the co-branding created some confusion about our brand. Were we OneDigital? Were we MRCT? The answer to both questions was and continues to be a resounding “YES.”
Six months later I am proud to say our team has had sufficient time to understand and leverage the new tools and resources. All of our new solutions, along with our own SmartBenefits planning process allow us to maintain our personal service to clients.
In what I feel is an important evolutionary move, we’ve decided to officially change our name to OneDigital Health and Benefits—St. Louis. Adopting the OneDigital brand will feel a lot like the brand you have come to think of as a strategic partner since you joined our family as a client.
You’ll continue to see a significant focus on a model that:
- delivers fresh-thinking approaches to benefit plan design,
- is responsive, optimistic and trustworthy,
- works relentlessly to drive the impact you expect, and
- is clearly invested in you, your people and your success
Over the coming days, weeks, and months we will be unveiling much more of the OneDigital story; we are confident you will see why we are so excited about this change. Within the week, you will receive your first official client communication entitled “Compliance Confidence.” You will later receive two other monthly communications “Healthy People” and “Better Benefits.” These e-news updates, and the OneDigital Freshthinking Blog will give you a glimpse into the latest in benefit plan design, as well as news about enhanced services and resources available to you, your leadership team, and your employees.
Join us in celebrating this next evolution of the MRCT story and why we believe OneDigital helps us deliver even SmarterBenefits!
