Donald Trump has won the 2016 presidential election and will be sworn in on January 20, 2017. Mercer will be carefully analysing the health, wealth and career policy implications for employers and their employees.
This page will be updated frequently as Mercer develops and publishes these insights.
In this post-election Washington Update, Mercer experts review the results and assess the potential policy effects on healthcare, retirement plans and investments, executive rewards, and talent and employment issues. Topics include likely legislative and regulatory priorities for the new president and Congress in 2017 as well as benefits and workplace issues expected to see action during the lame-duck congressional session.
“What about jobs?” Employment-related issues have been front and center of the 2016 Presidential campaign. In early 2016, Mercer collaborated with other thought-leading organisations to produce the World Economic Forum’s The Future of Jobs Report. This is a must-read for employers seeking insights and analysis on the candidates’ views on employment-related issues as well as on the general employment environment.
