Change and uncertainty in healthcare are the new norm. Thousands of organizations choose Mercer as their ally to devise innovative solutions that can control costs, strengthen employee engagement and improve health outcomes. We’d like to do the same for you.
Go from strategy to action with a disciplined approach
Whether you’re driving HR and benefits strategy for a Fortune 500 company or a midsize nonprofit, we can help you advance your goals.
Our unique, five-step consulting starts with understanding your objectives and goals. With your data and our deep knowledge of the market and benefits programs and vendors, we customize a strategy that’s right for you and your people.

How we help
Just as important, we rigorously measure outcomes to make changes that keep you on a path to achieving your goals. In our experience, four critical areas can make a meaningful difference:
Pay for value
The new approach to benefits is about paying for outcomes, not transactions. As an example, Mercer Health Advantage can help companies save up to 15% in healthcare costs.1
Drive to quality
Help your employees get the care they need when they need it. At the same time, protect your bottom line by leveraging tools that provide a wide-angle view of developing challenges.
Personalize the experience
Use data and analytics in completely new ways to personalize health and benefits.
Together, we discover and unleash new, exciting approaches to digital health and other innovative solutions that are disrupting the status quo in health and benefits.
Healthcare is complex. Costs are rising. Your people want more — and savvy organizations offer it. Mercer works as an extension of your team to analyze your goals, employee needs and risk, and deliver customized solutions that provide long-term value.
Stewarding your employee health and benefits program demands rigor and discipline. Seeing what’s on the horizon requires wide-ranging vision, along with the relationships to make sense of new and established offerings.

365-Day benefits solutions
Staying on top of healthcare and benefits trends is tough. Benefits require year-round action, from planning through enrollment, education and support. We put guidance, strategic expertise, technology tools and benefits counselors on deck 365 days a year.
Engaging employees to lead healthier lives and play a role in managing their benefits doesn’t happen just during open enrollment.

And your employees and their families need a better experience to manage their benefits, make smarter decisions and lead healthier lives throughout the year.
