Hodges-Mace, LLC is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia and is a leading provider of employee benefits communication and custom enrollment services to large U.S. employers.

Founded in 2004, the company’s strategy remains the same: work with fewer, larger clients than our competitors, so that we can dedicate the best resources to each client. Ultimately, our high-touch service philosophy and thorough approach to solving our client’s challenges translate to an exceptional customer service experience.

As a company, our culture shines when it comes to helping in and around our communities. We don’t just encourage our employees to volunteer, we pay them to. Each employee can take two paid days off each year to perform community service. Our company culture values people and relationships above all else, beginning in the workplace and continuing into the areas where we live and play. Our community service efforts are as diverse as our people – from packaging lunches and dinners through Open Hand Atlanta and running BINGO at a homeless women’s shelter to sorting and packing one ton of books for Books for Africa and cleaning up at a local pet rescue – our employees take pride in giving back and we are proud to support them in doing so.
