Mercer and Marsh today announced that they have established a new brand for international markets outside the United States, Mercer Marsh Benefits(TM). This new brand, featuring benefits brokerage and consulting capabilities, has been established to address employee benefit cost growth around the world and to reflect the global collaborative expertise and resources that Mercer and Marsh can bring together to solve this client issue.
“Mercer Marsh Benefits provides clients with a single source for managing the costs, people risks and complexities of their employee health and benefits programs,” said David Rahill, President of Mercer’s Employee Health & Benefits business. “Our global network consists of dedicated professionals, on the ground, who are deeply knowledgeable about local markets — a global structure that embraces the local unique qualities of cultures, currencies and languages and provides seamless advice and implementation.”
“Controlling benefits costs — particularly those for health care — is one of the biggest challenges facing employers,” said Greg Arms, Marsh’s Global Leader of Employee Health & Benefits. “Multinational companies can capture cost savings in a number of ways that aren’t available to other types of companies, and our Global Benefits Management Solution (GBM) is one of the most effective. Mercer and Marsh pioneered the global benefits management solution ten years ago and the number of companies electing to manage their programs globally through Mercer Marsh Benefits has increased tenfold over the last five years.”
