Types of reports available

There are two types of reports available in the Mercer BenefitsMonitor application depending on your need.

1. General, high level report

  • Spotlight of Key Benefits provides an overview of key benefits practice trends in the general market. This report is updated yearly, based on information taken from our benefits survey database. It represents all industries and presents results that can be used for making informed decisions on your benefits program

2. Specific, detailed report

  • Benefits Practice Report Summary (BPR-S) provides you with a quick overview of prevalence information and the median values on the survey responses to questions from our benefits questionnaire across all employee levels. It is a useful report to help you quickly identify variations in the benefits policies provided to the different employee levels within your selected peer group.
  • Benefits Prevalence Report (BPR) provides statistical information on the survey responses to questions from our benefits questionnaire. The report allows you to compare your employer's benefits policies and practices against the aggregated statistical results of selected peer groups, based on your subscription. It is an excellent way to benchmark your benefits program to ensure that your benefits strategy remains market competitive. Free-form text type questions are excluded from the report.
  • Detailed Benefits Report (DBR) provides you with the insight to the exact details per benefits plan of a custom peer group of your choice and the exact number of companies providing a certain benefit. It allows you to compare your benefits plan against each individual peer group presented on a side-by-side format and calculates average, maximum and minimum values for you.
