How to Deliver a Compelling Employee Experience | Mercer US

Strengthening Your Employee Value Proposition to Deliver a Compelling Employee Experience

For employers to effectively attract and retain a workforce for the future, they need to create a meaningful employee value proposition (EVP) that delivers a compelling employee experience and meets the full range of their employees’ needs.

It’s no longer enough for HR leaders to attract, retain and motivate employees with compensation and benefits alone. These contractual rewards remain important and foundational, but are too easily replicated and expensive to change. Your employees expect and need more.

  • 79% of adults trust employers to give advice on planning, saving and investing.
  • 78% of employees would work on a contract basis and 51% want more flexible work options
  • 50% of employees want more focus on health and wellness from their employers.
