Flexible, agile benefits by design

In a time of continuous change, organisations need their benefits strategy to be as agile as their business goals.

Employees also want the flexibility to choose benefits that suit their lifestyle, rather than accepting a one-size-fits-all package.

Mercer Marsh Benefits consultants, together with our Darwin digital solution, can help you create a strategy that is flexible by design – both for the business and for your employees.

Our first steps might be:

Benchmarking against competitors – attracting and retaining talent is keeping HR directors awake at night. Understand whether your benefits offering is competitive by sector or region, based on Mercer’s extensive, global benchmarking capabilities.

Review your existing benefits – by exploring your current approach to benefits, assessing return on investment and listening to employee needs, our benefits consultants can identify gaps and build a roadmap to address them.
