Mercer offers employers the unparalleled advantage of local market knowledge, cost-efficient processes, and access to expertise on innovations and compliance.

Employee health and welfare benefits are a critical component of any organization’s total rewards offering. By country, employers may be primarily or only partially responsible for providing employee benefits, but universally, they want sound ideas on how to support business and talent objectives and meet the needs of different demographic groups while balancing corporate cost constraints.

Mercer uses a rigorous methodology to help clients develop benefits strategies that are targeted to their distinct employee populations and budgets and aligned with business and talent objectives.

Mercer uses a rigorous methodology to help clients develop benefits strategies that are targeted to their distinct employee populations and budgets and aligned with business and talent objectives. This includes strategies to influence and manage employee behavior, communicate the value of benefits, and fully integrate health benefits into the total rewards package.

 

With the strategy set, we then work with the client to develop specific benefit plan designs. This can include medical, dental, vision, pharmacy, behavioral health, life, accident and disability, absence, flexible benefits/employee choice, and voluntary benefits, as well as other innovative benefits programs (for example, telemedicine, sleep therapy, or worksite clinics).

 

Our ultimate goal is to enable clients to:

 

  • Improve employee health, productivity, engagement, motivation, and performance.
  • Improve the organization’s financial well-being by increasing the value for money spent on benefits.
  • Ensure that benefit programs are competitively financed and effectively administered.
  • Offer competitive and compliant benefits within budget.
