Engaging employee benefits solutions

Workforces everywhere are increasingly multigenerational, diverse and global. Our Health on Demand research found that the more varied the benefits you offer, the more loyal, engaged and energised your workforce will become.

Critical to meeting these demands, is introducing automated benefit admin solutions. Not only does this reduce the administration burden on teams, but digital tools enable programmes to be tailored to employees’ unique needs and interests.

Our employee benefits consultants, with deep expertise at both a global and local level, are not tied to any specific solutions. This means we can help you build a strategy and select the programmes and vendors that are right for you, wherever you’re based.  

Employee benefits solution challenges

Navigating the increasingly complex world of employee benefits, people risk and employee benefit cost management, requires addressing the following issues. 

Soaring inflation and medical costs means employers need to carefully manage employee benefits spend to ensure they are affordable for organisations and employees alike. We’ll help you design plans for value; this means designing plans to maximise health quality and accessibility to reduce wastage while also managing underlying health risk, leveraging economies of scale and making sure benefits are delivering a return. Our benefits analytics, audits and benchmarking tools are designed to help. 

We help you put in place governance structures and automate and simplify HR processes with a range of digital solutions. This leverages our local market and global knowledge to ensure your benefits remain compliant and effective. 

What gets measured gets managed, so it’s important you understand your risk and what’s driving sickness absence and health claims. Our tools allow you to track absence rates, claims, costs, and the impact of interventions. We can also help you assess predominant health risks to inform your employee benefits strategy.

Employees want to work for employers that make them feel valued and cared for. The skills shortage means that meaningful, personalised employee benefits are now vital for attracting and retaining the talent needed for business success.  

Engaged employees are not only more loyal to their employers, but they are also more productive. Critical to this is increasing choice, with flexible benefits and digital administration, so everyone feels like there is something for them.
