Click a button and in fifteen minutes you will be delivered a sandwich. Deposit a check by taking a picture of it on your smart phone. Click your Dash button and laundry detergent is delivered the next day. All around us technology is making our lives easier, yet many companies are still using paper forms and several different systems to manage HR, payroll, onboarding and employee benefits. We see this as an opportunity and we are excited to simplify these processes though our software and education. We eliminate paper and simplify your work by moving these processes to your smart phone and computer.

Our Founding

Our Founding

Michigan Group Benefits was founded in 2002 by Michael Harp. Our early focus was on Benefits Administration and Education. Later we became a Third Party Administrator so that we could administer Flex Plan and HRA Plan claims for our growing list of clients. Today we serve more than 100 companies and continue our passion to make HR and benefits easy for you.

Our Founding

We all loved the portal. It was easy to use for staff, reduced the time spent on open enrollment with paper copies and I loved the dashboard reports for enrollment and FSA reporting.

Employee benefits are one of the biggest expenditures in our budget and one of the best ways we can value our employees. As a small organization spread across five states, bilingual/bicultural, and with employees with highly diverse backgrounds and circumstances, finding the right products that meet both the employee and company needs is difficult. We moved all our business to Michigan Group Benefits over 10 years ago because they work hard to understand who we are as a company, what we value, and how our employees live — and most importantly, changing with us as we change and manifest different needs and concerns over time. This allows them to offer us solid products at an excellent price that people really use.

I have worked with Michigan Group Benefits (MGB) for many years. They have made my HR process easier than I could have imagined. The staff are smart, professional, courteous, and always available to answer any question. If they don’t have the answer immediately, they get it fast and ensure you are making the appropriate decision. I could not do the HR work for an organization with more than 40 people without the help of MGB.
