Mercer announced today that it has been named a first place winner at the Eddy Awards in the ongoing investment education category from Pensions & Investments magazine for “Uncover the Numbers”, an innovative online retirement planning and education campaign for employees whose 401(k) plans it administers. The Eddy Awards recognize the best practices in educating defined contribution plan participants.
Using a theme of numbers related to retirement, Uncover the Numbers offers game-like interactivity to engage individuals’ natural curiosity while delivering helpful retirement planning insights. The website features an inviting, tile-based design modeled after leading social and consumer websites, offering participants a fun and familiar experience that captures attention, encourages exploration, and allows for easy sharing with colleagues, friends, and family. In addition, visitors can use the site’s “SmartSort” functionality to instantly group content by career stage or investing topic.
“We are very pleased and proud that our Uncover the Numbers campaign has won an Eddy,” said Michael Murphy, National Sales and Marketing Leader of Mercer’s Benefits Administration business. “Planning for retirement can be daunting for many so we wanted to create a campaign and tools that would engage participants and encourage exploration while educating them in a way that would help them embrace their retirement reality. We therefore designed Uncover the Numbers to offer accessible and relevant information that helps participants grow their confidence in successfully saving for retirement.”
