Mercer Marsh Benefits

Managing people risk

Prepare today to manage the risks that impact your workforce.

When your people are healthy and protected, your business is healthy and protected

People-related risks have risen sharply up the boardroom agenda as a result of the single largest health crisis of our time.  

People are an organisation’s most important strength, but they can bring significant risk to your business if not properly managed. Never before has it been so crucial that HR and risk management break down silos and work together to protect, equip, and motivate this critical asset.

Mercer Marsh Benefits provides organisations with a single source to manage business risks associated with the impact of employee illness and injury (people risks), including; risks, costs, expectations, obligations and complexities.

We partner with hundreds of organisations across New Zealand, to help them better understand their people risks, to ultimately unlock savings and improve employee health and wellbeing.

Depending on where you are in your journey to building a healthy, protected and productive workforce, we can either partner with you on individual class-leading products and services, or as a fully integrated program.

We work in partnership with businesses, bringing deep technical expertise from brokers, consultants and allied health professionals to support:

  • Data analytics and forecasting
  • Insurance placement and risk financing
  • Risk control assessments & protocols
  • Legislation and regulation compliance
  • Training and education
  • Strategic claims management 

Our approach

Our approach is to view the management of people risks in a cycle. We believe there is an opportunity for organisations to change the focus of people risk management to better address keeping employees healthy, well and productive above the health line, to contain costs, improve productivity and minimise the impact of ill health below the line.
