Workplace Health

Strategic Health Solutions

Investing in well-being makes business sense. Today, employers must support a diverse workforce of employees who are working until later in life and with increasing health risks.

The future of public provision of health care is uncertain; and the cost of private health care is rising as it becomes more and more expensive to treat sick employees.

To meet these challenges and remain competitive, employers must think differently about the health care benefits they provide.

We are working with employers of all sizes to help them target and address the specific health risks within their organisation and measure the effectiveness and ROI of their initiatives, building a sound business case for health.

An Integrated Approach

The aim is to help employers improve their bottom line through improving the physical, mental and financial wellbeing of their employees by:

  • Facilitating sustained behavioural change to improve health
  • Providing robust benefits for when ill health does arrive

The framework is built around the 5 key segments:

  • Benefit design
  • Brokerage
  • Engagement
  • Internal measurement
  • Health incentives

Group Risk Consulting

Managing risk for employee benefits is an area of increasing concern. The unpredictable nature of benefits provided in the event of death in service and prolonged or serious ill health sets them apart from similar offerings. Pension scheme trustees and employers who are responsible for providing these benefits must, therefore, seek professional advice on cash flow and the ultimate cost of these benefit provisions.

Mercer places more insurance of this nature in the Irish market than any other adviser. Our significant portfolio and advanced relationships with insurers give us the technical and market expertise to:

  • Develop exclusive market offerings
  • Influence insurers’ policy decisions
  • Ensure you receive the most competitive terms, coverage, claims and administration support
  • Objectively benchmark and challenge service levels based on the best offerings available
