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.
Mercer’s range and depth of experience means we can offer you a more holistic approach to employee benefits design. We provide strategic advice and brokerage services that help you minimize risk, optimize benefit structure, and maximize employee engagement. With our team by your side, you can streamline administration, better evaluate compliance needs, and boost employee engagement — often resulting in meaningful cost savings.
Mercer has substantial relationships with nearly every major health provider. This creates great value for our clients by allowing us to anticipate trends and enhance our negotiations around costs, terms, and resolutions. It also helps us build innovative programs such as Mercer Health Advantage® and Mercer Marketplace℠.
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.*
