Multinational organizations are rethinking their approach to managing their global benefits, from program design to governance and administration. The need for a strong global structure, with the ability to tailor benefits for simple and agile local execution and employee engagement, has never been greater.
As employers of all sizes expand their operations globally, they need to look at the scope and level of benefits they provide for their increasingly diverse and mobile workforces. This includes understanding the range of health and well-being risks present in each location and their impact on employee productivity and engagement.
Many organizations pay the price for a fragmented, ‘multiple-national’ approach to benefits broking. In fact, 81% of multinational benefits leaders say ‘global consistency’ is their number one priority according to Mercer’s Benefits Tech Trends report.
