How can you give public sector employees the compensation and benefits they deserve on a budget you can afford?

It’s all about alignment. By bringing strategic thinking to your compensation and benefits, you can make sure that healthcare reform legislation, collective bargaining agreements and other complex issues are aligned with your public entity’s goals. Some think of it as a delicate balancing act. For us, it’s business as usual. Providing competitive salaries and benefits while meeting your organization’s budget goals — that’s a total compensation approach. And we’re helping public entities make it happen.

Experience makes all the difference.

Budgeting for the public sector can test your resolve when you’re trying to balance competitive benefits with critical organizational objectives and financial goals. And, it’s a complex process —multiple stakeholder groups are involved and you have to account for the ever-changing regulatory landscape. There’s a real need for a partner who understands your challenges and can clearly explain your options, so you can make informed, strategic decisions.

The national Public Sector Practice of Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. is dedicated to public entities —schools, municipalities, state and local governments. We are active members of the public sector community, so we know the market, the players, the legislation and the cost factors. And our team speaks your language. We’ll help you communicate with your varied key stakeholder groups —employees, boards, councils, state and local unions — so they can make educated compensation and benefit decisions.

Your team, our team, one team.
