Employee Health & Benefits

Employee benefit plans are under transformation and Marsh provides an approach to benefits management that creates long-term sustainability.

The employee health and benefits sector is experiencing sweeping changes. Total annual benefits costs per employee continue to outpace both workers’ earnings and inflation, while new legislation and regulations add layers of complexity and additional expense. On top of all that, a shortage of critical talent is adding pressure to offer competitive benefits that will attract key employees.

Marsh’s range and depth of experience means we can offer you a more holistic approach to employee benefits design. We work together with Mercer to provide strategic advice and brokerage services that help you minimize risk, optimize benefit structure, and maximize employee engagement. With our Mercer Marsh Benefits team by your side, you can streamline administration and better evaluate compliance needs – often resulting in meaningful cost savings.

By leveraging our relationships with nearly every major health provider, we anticipate trends and enhance our negotiations around costs, terms, and resolutions, creating value for our clients. Working closely, we help you understand the current market dynamics, identify your goals and pain points, and then develop a tailored strategy that meets your business needs.

Marsh counts on a number of tools, including comprehensive benchmarking analysis which provide proprietary insights and analysis, value-based care analytics which is an industry-leading tool suite that provides local insights, and network optimization tools.

We work with clients of all sizes, from small local businesses to large multinational organizations. Our extensive experience allows us to identify best practices and scale them to meet your needs, no matter where in the world you are.
