Adviant: Sounds like Advice, but with a spin. Our name incorporates the merits of Advice, Value, Intelligence, and Commitment.
Founded in 1998 to serve our clients’ employee benefit needs, Adviant quickly expanded into a full-service human resources consulting and services firm.
The Firm offers HR consulting services in areas such as, compensation, employee benefits, regulatory compliance, general HR, recruiting and retention, training and communication, and executive coaching and strategic planning facilitation. We also provide group insurance brokerage services, outsourced administration of employee compensation and benefit programs, and full human resource and payroll outsourcing services.
Adviant differentiates itself from larger consulting firms by tailoring its services and fee structure for mid-size employers. Often described as a niche-player or boutique operation, Adviant is large enough to handle substantial assignments, yet small enough to easily flex with a client's changing needs. The Firm's clients are both public and private sector employers and are local, national, and international in scope.
Adviant's founder, Paul Bazell, explains the Firm’s holistic approach to HR and total rewards like this, "The industry has created silos of knowledge wherein employee compensation, benefits, HR, risk management, and workplace safety are treated separately. By combining these disciplines, Adviant helps clients streamline the day-to-day administration of these programs and generates new opportunities to align a client's total rewards package with their business plan and operating budget."
Adviant colleagues are generally graduates of large consulting firms, major brokerage operations, or are tenured HR generalists. Clients draw from a variety of experience and talent, as their needs dictate. Each Adviant colleague has day-to-day client accountability for producing measurable value in excess of their billable expense.
