MJ Insurance Establishes HR Consulting Practice

INDIANAPOLIS – (February 15, 2011) – A growing client need has prompted MJ Insurance to form a Human Resource Consulting Division to work hand-in-hand with current and prospective clients to assist with the ever-increasing complex world of human resource services.

Citing federal health care reform, understaffed and overwhelmed HR managers in a broad array of industry sectors, MJ Insurance CEO Mike Bill determined now was the time to launch the new HR division. “For some time, we have been seeing an increased demand for our HR consulting services,” said Bill. “This new division will help us assist our clients with their ever-growing HR service needs.”

MJ Insurance, one of the largest privately-held insurance agencies in the U.S., will now be offering a broad and complex menu of services specific to the HR needs of its clients. To lead the consulting practice, MJ Insurance has hired Mellissa Boggs, an industry veteran with nearly two decades of HR experience. Boggs started with MJ Insurance in January and has an impressive background in developing and implementing human resource strategies for a mix of industries.

Boggs said business and company leaders continue to express their frustration in trying to keep up with the on-going changes to HR laws, regulations and policies. MJ Insurance’s HR consulting practice will add efficiencies and value with the many human resource issues companies face today. The consulting practice will include leadership coaching, training initiatives, risk mitigation, policy and procedure development as well as time and resource saving best practices. “We see ourselves bringing significant value to clients who decide to take advantage of our expertise,” said Boggs. “Our process is collaborative and helps company leaders focus on their key areas of strength allowing us to manage the complex world of HR.”

Jon Loftin, president of MJ Insurance, said clients have increasingly been asking for such value-added HR services and feels Boggs is the perfect leader to push MJ Insurance to the next level with its HR service-line. “Mellissa’s experience is unparalleled in the industry,” said Loftin. “We are excited to bring her expertise to our clients.”
