James Farley’s client coined a phrase about his ability to find innovative solutions, calling it “The Farley Magic.”

His client struggled with operating a strong benefits program, noting, “Our former employees declared our benefits to be the number one reason they left our company.”

Farley took on the challenge and worked closely with the client to brainstorm innovative ways to enhance their benefits program.

“Finding the solutions to our issues required stepping outside the box and coming up with ideas that were untried, helping us build a plan to get to a healthy program,” the client said. “Dealing with a company that had some real financial difficulties also required him to work the ‘Farley Magic’ to keep our carriers on our side.”

Another of Farley’s clients, a large trucking company with 7,000 employees, is on track to save $1 million this year thanks to Farley’s suggestion to add a high-performing network as an additional surgery option for employees.

With a challenging year with supply chain issues, maintaining competitive employee benefits while managing medical inflation costs is a constant concern for this client.

Farley also helped this client raise employee satisfaction levels with the benefit plan offerings by adding an employee advocacy group, providing customer service and personalized case management to every member. Employees feel supported and the company reduced costs and can expect to see future savings.
