Efficiency and HR Management Services meet risk management!
Your People are truly the foundation of the risk every company has. The Human element of risk is often overlooked, but without your employees, there simply would not be businesses at all!
Compliance is an area of risk that sometimes gets taken for granted or is simply “assumed.” Many businesses are focused more on sales and making sure revenue is showing up, rather than taking the time necessary to understand the various laws and regulations that they need to keep up on.
As the need for compliance continues to expand around businesses, it‘s never been more important to stay on top of the risks. But how?
Our Compliance and Technology practice, called ”Vision,” can help our clients with things like Payroll, Time & Attendance, Employee Retention, Recruitment and HR Managed Services.
We use tools in this area such as:
- Organizational Benefits & Plan Design Analysis
- HR Compliance Risk Reviews
- Technology/Efficiency and Payroll Services
- Safety & Loss Control Services
Your staff should be focused on more productive things than manually tracking data points. We have the technology and the processes to help empower you to be your best company.
Let us help you tie all of this together in a way that simply makes sense!
Digital Risk Consulting
Digital Risk has quickly become the #1 threat that keeps business owners up at night. We feel strongly that a Cyber Insurance policy alone simply is not sufficient if we are going to be effective partners with our clients. We’re focused on driving education to our clients and helping them focus on “what to do” when some sort of digital intruder shows up. Business Continuity concerns like reputational risk and other soft types of damage are areas that we help our clients prepare for. Our Digital Risk Practice can also help provide clarity and valuable insight in the way of providing our clients with ongoing monitoring and tools to continue to improve the stability of this critical Pillar of our 4Sight process.

(Employee Stock Ownership Plans)
We know a thing or two about ESOPs. We are one!
ESOP companies or companies who utilize an Employee Stock Ownership Plan as their corporate ownership structure come with unique risks. Winter-Dent is uniquely positioned in the ESOP community as a leader in cultural development and building out a culture that is set up to thrive in this Business Literate environment.
Today, with the boom of transitional activity going on in corporate America, ESOPs have become a very popular way to put the ownership of a company into its employees’ hands.
This legacy decision should not be taken lightly.
ESOP structures are filled with unique regulations, conflicts of interest and governance structures that can vary from plan to plan. Let us help you evaluate these risks and advise you along the path of success to ensure your company optimizes its structure.
Our 4Sight process will allow you to clearly stay ahead of the risks of being an ESOP. If you’d like to learn more about this interesting and very rewarding business structure, please reach out!
The leadership and governance structures of businesses need to be protected.
Our goal is to protect your executives and to give everyone peace of mind, allowing the best results to flow from the top. Through our 4Sight process, we will evaluate this risk and provide you with an assessment designed to create customized and cost-effective programs meant to support your business’ objectives.
We’re working hard to stay out ahead of our clients to help them navigate the risks for both the executives involved as well as the companies they serve.

Don’t mess around with this huge opportunity to control costs!
Worker’s Compensation is typically one of the largest drivers of cost for most risk management programs. This can depend on the industry but is usually the case. Our goal is to help companies understand exactly how they can affect and take control of this cost driver. It’s all about being proactive.
Our ability to assess claims, provide analysis of your loss history and to help project where you might be able to go in the future is second to none. Any risk management process wouldn’t be complete without the ability to assess, manage and monitor moving forward. We don’t stop there!
