About

Our company began as Pal Benefits in 1997, when Michael Worb and a small group of like-minded professionals came together. From the beginning, we strived to take a more hands-on, personal, proactive approach to our clients and their businesses.

Deepening our expertise

Every time a client had a question, we looked for ways to help. In 2002, we began advising on Investment & Retirement programs; in 2007, we launched our Broad-based and Executive Compensation practice. Today, we address the full range of strategic, financial, and regulatory issues surrounding our clients’ programs.

Attracting the right people

Across Benefits & Health, Investment & Retirement, Executive Compensation, and Broad-based Compensation, we have sought out colleagues who exhibit a rare combination of very deep expertise and an instinctive talent for personal service. Sometimes, it takes eight or nine interviews to make sure they’re just right. Take our President: In 2012, Sarah Beech joined the team, after a number of years leading the Canadian consulting business at a prominent global HR consulting firm.

Becoming Accompass

In 2014, after an in-depth process of discovery with our clients, partners, and employees, we changed our name to better mirror the experience we offer. Accompass represents how we accompany our clients at every step, what we accomplish together, and how all encompassing our approach is.

Focused on you

Today, there are dozens of us, working fluidly across areas of expertise. We’ve grown with our clients, whose operations now span the globe. Many have been with us since the beginning.

Our team may not fit around one table anymore, but we are united in this commitment: to provide a level of service that will never be found anywhere else.
