Robert Slayton & Associates, Inc.
Robert has been in the industry for over 15 years and specializes in helping employers manage the healthcare supply chain to create superior employee outcomes while freeing up money to be used to expand an organization’s mission.
He is an expert on health insurance and has been quoted in trade magazines and the popular press (such as Crains, Chicago Tribune, US News & World Report, MSNBC.com, FoxNews, The Washington Examiner, and Yahoo Hotjobs).
Every year, employers see their investment in employee healthcare increase. Most executives feel helpless and are unable to reign in those costs which now represent their number two or number three budget line item.
Historically, it was nearly impossible to predict and control a company’s healthcare budget, but today, due to new solutions, strategies, technology, and a wealth of data, business leaders can (and are) taking back control of their healthcare budgets to reclaim trapped profits while actually creating healthier, happier employees that are more fulfilled and more productive.
As a next generation benefits adviser, Robert has the privilege of helping employers achieve those game-changing results and break through the status quo of just accepting increasing healthcare costs year after year.
Brokering insurance and negotiating the lowest cost increase is no longer a sustainable, viable, or preferred approach to managing a company’s healthcare investment. What’s required today is a legitimate consultative and strategic approach solves the problem long-term.
This new approach is healthcare supply chain management. This model allows companies to apply the same effective cost-control practices they leverage in other parts of the organization to their healthcare costs – the process eliminates wasted expenses, redirects dollars to produce a measurable ROI, and optimizes the employee healthcare experience creating a more loyal, productive, and profitable workforce.
If you want happier and more productive employees, and a long-term healthcare strategy that expands your mission, then let’s chat. It is not certain that his approach will work for your organization, but he’s willing to invest a few minutes to find out and answer your questions.
Robert is Past President of the Illinois State Association of Health Underwriters (ISAHU) and Past Legislative Co-Chair for the DuPage Association of Health Underwriters (DAHU).
He holds a Master’s of Science Degree in Education in Counseling from Northern Illinois University and a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of Michigan (with a minor in International Business).
Robert and his wife Susan live in Naperville, Illinois, with their two children. He enjoys spending time with his family (and dog), reading, and being active in his community. His most recent position is as Chairman of the Permanent Funds Committee at his church. Want to talk about your specific situation?
