On Monday, our Mercer and MMC teams arrived at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting to connect with clients and government and business leaders. As the week of collaboration and discovery got under way, the MMC dinner made for an energetic start to our ambitious agenda. Over the next few days, our team is focused on the key drivers of economic growth being discussed here at the WEF: talent, financial stability, and the role of cities. After all, the global risks and opportunities in our rapidly changing world of work require robust conversations and solutions that reflect the new realities of living, learning and earning longer.
