We are thrilled to announce an exciting engagement between MJ and Ardent Mills, a leading flour-milling and ingredient company headquartered in Denver. Ardent Mills engaged MJ after seeking a brokerage and consulting firm that would ensure a people-first approach, that was also grounded in strong analytics to help drive their employee benefit program. With over 40 locations, Ardent Mills employs more than 100 certified millers, supports thousands of local jobs and recognizes that a thriving workforce is the cornerstone of their enduring success.

To provide its team members with a high-quality and comprehensive benefits package, Ardent Mills sought a brokerage and consulting firm who could provide an approach aligned with Ardent Mills’ vision and values. Through MJ’s nimble and client-focused methods, we were able to offer Ardent Mills the personal attention of a smaller firm, combined with the resources of a global operation.

“Ardent Mills is a people-driven organization. It was important to us to find a brokerage and consulting firm that not only understood our values but could provide us the tools and support to help us better put them into action for our team members,” says Heather Dumas, chief people officer at Ardent Mills.

As part of this engagement, MJ will help design and maintain a competitive, innovative, and financially sustainable benefits package that caters to the diverse needs of Ardent Mills.

“As we at MJ strive to enhance how corporations deliver exceptional benefits to their employees through innovation and efficient processes, the engagement with Ardent Mills will allow us to combine our resources and expertise to showcase what’s possible when we lead with a people first mindset,” said Courtney Hutchison, market president-Colorado of The MJ Companies. “I’m excited about the possibilities that lie ahead and the positive impact we hope to create together.”

At MJ, we are driven by our commitment to enrich the lives of those we serve. Together with Ardent Mills, we will help to foster positive change, continuous improvement, and a shared vision of excellence for their team member experience.
