Businesses today not only compete for customers. They also compete for employees. Yet attracting, retaining, and maximising productivity of talent can be as challenging as building the business.
Mercer Marsh Benefits™ is a collaboration between two operating companies of Marsh & McLennan Companies: Marsh Pty Ltd and Mercer Consulting (Australia) Pty Ltd, which between them have more than 50 years’ experience in the employee benefits brokerage, consulting, and HR outsourcing businesses. Together we represent one of the largest employee benefit consultancy and brokerage businesses in Australia.
Our experienced team of professionals can help you to differentiate your organisation by taking the time to understand the unique needs of your business and the problems you are facing. We can then develop a bespoke employee benefits program — with a single source for managing the associated costs, risks, and complexities.
The result? A collaborative based approach providing a competitive benefits program that can better serve your employees, who in turn, help your business thrive in a competitive marketplace.
Life and Disability
As a critical component of any organisation’s total rewards offering, Mercer Marsh Benefits™ assists clients with plan design, benchmarking, placement, and ongoing management in relation to life, disability, trauma, personal accident, and sickness benefits.
We also assist superannuation fund trustees with the design, governance, and placement of insurance solutions for their members. In addition, we have access to specialist claims advisory services tailored to the specific regulatory needs of managing claims in the superannuation environment.
With corporations increasingly transcending conventional borders, employers are required to consider benefits for overseas and mobile workers in addition to their local workforce.
With more than 17,500 benefit consultants and administrators globally, we can help you understand each country’s competitive practices, culture, and governance to structure a cost-effective approach to funding and administering benefit programs, including:
- In-country and expatriate benefits.
- Regional or global benefits management.
- Multinational pooling to leverage your combined global buying power.
Health and Wellbeing
Employers increasingly recognise the correlation between employee health and absence costs and their effect on productivity. Introducing health and wellbeing programs can help minimise such costs while increasing employee engagement.
Employers can fully or partially subsidise employee health insurance schemes, which employees highly value. Mercer Marsh Benefits™ can design a plan specifically for your organisation and use our market knowledge and relationships to arrange extensive, cost-effective coverage.
Our integrated approach to developing corporate wellness programs increases the efficiency and effectiveness of how these programs work with one another. Specifically, we:
- Identify health risk factors of your particular workforce.
- Analyse absence and sickness records to determine the cost to your business.
- Use findings to design a corporate wellness program that suits your needs.
