Greetings from Mercer!


A lot has been happening around us with market volatility acting as an accelerator! India continues to grow as an economy leaving behind some of the front-runners like UK and is now the 5th largest economy in the world in terms of Global GDP ranking. We also saw mobility at a different level with Cheetahs returning to India after a gap of 70 years!


Skills are the new business currency to fuel or support economic growth. Competency building, performance linked pay, empowerment, globalization, and workforce diversity etc. are some of the focus areas for the HR function. 


We have put together a compendium of Mercer’s viewpoints on diverse topics ranging from Talent, Flexible Policies for mobile workforce, Survey Report from a mobility perspective, Global Trends in employee Benefits and Managing Inflation Risk. Hope you enjoy reading it


Happy festivities!
