Consulting and Education
The Tarpey Group has unique consulting capabilities and expertise in-house, enabling us to engage with our clients not only around the creation of a benefits solution, but at a fundamental financial management level. We have direct experience serving on non-profit boards. We assist our clients in preparing key financial reports, analyses, interpretation of ratios and presentations in preparation for board meetings. We allow our clients to focus on their core businesses, by providing support in complex financial management areas.
Creating the benefits package is only part of the solution. After an independent review of providers is undertaken to determine (or reaffirm) that the right partner is selected based on desired outcomes – at the Tarpey Group we believe the education of faculty members, administrators and staff members is critical so that the financial plans and positive outcomes of the individual, are maximized. Creating an understanding of wealth building, retirement planning, debt management, long term planning and overall financial decision making is what we deliver, when we engage with an independent school. Through formal classes, seminars, individual consultation and day to day communication we work to ensure that faculty within our client schools, become more informed, and in turn, develop a greater appreciation for the benefits being provided to them.
Unique Client Management Platform
Using consulting best practices, the Tarpey group engages clients through the ‘discover, design and deliver’ approach recognizing that each client has unique needs thereby requiring a tailored benefits solution.
Beginning with an internal review as part of the discovery process, we collaborate with our clients through policy design, plan modeling and plan architecture to complete a profitability program that identifies cost savings. The creation of a customized educational open enrollment and new hire material and a detailed implementation plan culminates in an accountability timeline all backed by the Tarpey Group guarantee.
We believe this attention to detail and continuous search for cost efficiencies on behalf of our client represents a unique approach in the industry.
