Mercer Talent

The Critical Connection Between Careers, Workforces, and Business Performance


Talent Is the Final Frontier

The market landscape is changing at an unprecedented pace. Customer and client expectations are constantly evolving. Companies are merging at historic rates. Technology is developing faster than the market can keep up with. So what competitive advantage is left?

The answer: people. Your people are your only irreplaceable assets, the ones who will make the difference now and for years to come.

How Do You Build a Competitive Workforce?

What do you need to do today to ensure your organisation succeeds tomorrow?

Maybe the future of your business lies in retaining more of your female workforce, embracing innovation, or developing leaders with a global mindset. Perhaps you’re dealing with multiple generations and working styles, or you’re having trouble finding highly skilled employees in niche fields.

We see these challenges as solutions in the making. By getting to the core of your talent needs, we can provide you the right solutions for a more productive and happier workplace.

It’s hard to find an organisation that understands talent better than Mercer.  Since 1945, when we started helping employees access benefits, we’ve been expanding our talent and HR capabilities to the market-leading position we occupy today.

Mercer Talent Solutions

Talent Strategy

Mercer’s Workforce Planning helps organisations identify critical jobs and skills as well as measure gaps in talent supply.

What’s Your Strategy? A company is only as good as its talent. And a company’s talent is only as good as its talent strategy. Talent leaders can no longer get away with haphazard hiring and ineffective career management. Employees today aren’t interested in just jobs — they want meaningful careers.

Workforce Rewards

Mercer provides clients with an objective, informed, and analytical approach to workforce rewards that align with business strategy.

Look at your balance sheet and you won’t see any line items that reflect your employees’ enthusiasm, engagement, or energy levels. But these intangible factors are key to employee performance. Make them sustainable with the right rewards strategies.

Executive Compensation and Rewards

Mercer combines experienced consultants with big data analytics and advanced technology to help clients make timely decisions about their workforces.

The executive rewards and governance landscape is increasingly complex. These programs need to attract key talent, motivate appropriate performance, and create an alignment with business imperatives and other talent strategies.

Talent Mobility

Mercer can help design a time-sensitive and cost-efficient mobility strategy to meet your organisation’s critical demand for talent.

Websites are not the only things that need to be mobile-optimised. Today’s increasingly globalised environment means you need to be ready to mobilise people at every level of your organisation. Our proprietary mobility data and research are the best of their kind—and so are our consultants. We have the tools and the experience to help you meet your organisation’s specific mobility needs, with practical advice behind the hard numbers. 

HR Transformation

Mercer can help transform Human Resources organisations by developing sophisticated HR strategies, HR technology strategies, and new HR operating models.

Human Resources can’t expect to keep up with a changing world by standing still. HR professionals need to equip their operations, and themselves, to function in a rapidly changing global environment. We think of the future of HR differently than most. Many obstacles get in the way of HR success: reorganisations, M&A, talent shortages, budget pressures, employee demands, and disruptive new technologies. But at Mercer, we don’t just want you to react to these issues — we want your HR team to become an essential business function leading the way in delivering bottom-line results.

Employee Communications

Mercer consultants help organisations create a strategic and engaging approach to communications to help companies effectively communicate and motivate employees about benefits, compensation, rewards, and organisational changes.

When you deliver an important message to your employees, is it closer to a message in a bottle than a direct conversation? Perhaps you’re updating your business strategy or transforming your organisation. Maybe you’re changing your pension plan or moving to a private exchange health plan. How you deliver credible information about organisational changes can keep your key people from jumping ship. An effective communication strategy has the power to boost employee engagement, build internal awareness, drive performance, retain talent, and even make your workforce more open to change. The gap between company change and employee understanding can be wide. Let us help you build bridges.
