Employee Benefits and Consulting

Changing the Arc of Employee Benefits

Around the globe, sweeping changes are transforming the design and shape of employee benefits plans. Total annual benefits costs per employee continue to outpace both workers’ earnings and inflation, while new legislation and regulations add layers of complexity and additional expense. On top of all that, a shortage of critical talent is adding pressure to offer competitive benefits that will attract key employees.

Benefit From Our Experience

Mercer’s range and depth of experience means we can offer you a more holistic approach to employee benefits design. We provide strategic advice that help you minimize risk, optimize benefit structure, and maximize employee engagement. With our team by your side, you can better evaluate compliance needs, and boost employee engagement — often resulting in meaningful cost savings.

Strategy First to Optimize Benefits

At Mercer, we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all solution. Working closely, we help you understand the current market dynamics, identify your goals and pain points, and then develop a tailored strategy to meet your business needs. Our approach delivers real-world solutions using Mercer-proprietary tools.

For example:

  • Benchmarking Analysis: We can conduct the most comprehensive benefits surveys in the industry, providing proprietary insights and analysis through a series of surveys to help you make more informed decisions.
  • Mercer Workplace Health: This approach helps employers make targeted interventions to enhance the performance of their workforce and business through improved productivity, engagement and long-term cost reduction in four key areas: benefits design, engagement, internal measurement and health incentives.

Health Management

In countries where employers are primarily responsible for providing health benefits, we advise organizations on how to provide benefits that identify and reduce the health risks of their employee population while balancing corporate cost constraints. 

Mercer provides comprehensive health management solutions covering wellness, care management, absence, and behavioral health that can reduce total costs, improve workforce performance, and be a differentiator in the race for talent. 

Best Practices and Better Service

We work with clients of all sizes, from small local businesses to large multinational organizations. Our extensive experience allows us to identify best practices and scale them to meet your needs, no matter where in the world you are.
