Mercer Marsh Benefits

Employee health benefits program

Having a great employee health benefits plan improves the well-being of your people, while also building the health and resilience of your business.

Simplify and improve your employee health benefits strategy to create effective and sustainable programs

The future of work demands healthy, focused employees.

On the one hand, organisations must keep costs to a minimum and protect the bottom line, while also meeting changing regulation, managing complex risk and exposures, and supporting HR teams who are increasingly feeling the pressure.

On the other hand, most organisations want to invest in their people — attracting and retaining the best talent and giving their employees benefits that truly benefit themselves and their loved ones.

We understand the importance of balancing both. Ultimately, you’re fighting for the health and resilience of your people and the health and resilience of your business. Too often this balancing act is viewed as an "either or”. But we see it differently. When both sides of the equation are in sync, you create a virtuous circle whereby one reinforces the other — and your people and business emerge stronger from every challenge.
