Mercer Marsh Benefits

Enterprise solutions

Employee benefits designed for and tailored to SMEs and growing enterprise’s needs can help you protect one of your most valuable assets, your people.

Business owners know that to stand out from the competition you need a strong remuneration package — and financial incentives may not be enough to retain valued employees.

However, many SMEs and growing enterprises are forced to focus on overheads, budgets, costs, and payrolls to survive.

And businesses with lower headcounts often find their ability to provide benefits restricted by what is available in the market. Some can even be left feeling that insurers aren’t interested in, or don’t want, their benefits business.

But the consequences for firms that do not prioritize reward are significant.

Our Health on Demand 2023 research found that just 56% of employees in small firms (less than 50 people) feel cared for by their employer, compared to 72% of people in firms with between 500–19,999 employees.  Employees that do not feel valued are likely to vote with their feet and move to the competition.

Introducing employee benefits can impose a significant additional expense, when not done strategically. Mercer Marsh Benefits has extensive experience and track-record in finding cost-effective and competitive benefits options for small and medium-sized businesses. Our principles of saving you time, money, and getting you and your employees better benefits are our greatest priority.
