Developing A Meaningful Compensation Strategy

Business results are driven by people. And what are people driven by?

Your balance sheet may not have any line items on your employees’ enthusiasm, engagement or energy. However, these intangible factors are crucial to performance.

Your People Are Your Greatest Asset – Reward Them

The right rewards strategies provide employees with more than financial security and can lead to sustainably optimized performance. Finding the right balance can be tricky. In the era of choice, how you design and deliver this cornerstone of the employee value proposition is critical to your ability to attract and retain the workforce you need.

Effective rewards strategy design means embracing the needs of a diverse, multigenerational and global workforce. An even greater challenge lies beyond creating a flexible framework for a diverse workforce: anticipating employee needs for the future of work.

Facts, Data, Insights: Analyzing the 'Unquantifiable'

Mercer has more than 80 years of experience understanding what drives employees and translating that knowledge into results. You won’t find data like ours anywhere else. Our benchmark database is the best in the business for evaluating and creating competitive compensation offerings.

As unique as each person’s career is, we can make your rewards structure easier and more efficient with solutions like job levelling across your organization and the world, job architectures that help your employees build careers, and dynamic strategies that direct all of your rewards decisions.

Optimizing Job Architectures for Desirable Career Progress

An even greater challenge lies beyond creating a flexible framework for a diverse workforce: The workforce for the future will fill roles that don’t even exist yet. But how can you plan for what you don’t know?

Mercer relies on proven science. Our International Position Evaluation (IPE) methodology underpins the job architecture and methodology we use to evaluate brand new roles. So you can maintain your stride even as the future of work changes before your eyes.
