United Kingdom, London

Mercer Marsh Benefits (MMB) today announces the launch of Elect Engage, an online employee benefits platform enabling small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to purchase and manage employee benefits anytime, anywhere. Through this new digital solution, companies in the UK can access favourable rates for insurance quotes and benefits, as well as manage employee data all in one place.  

While simplifying the process for HR professionals, Elect Engage also provides employees with 24-hour access to information on their benefits, enhancing their understanding and engagement with the perks available to them.

Commenting on the launch, Tony Wood, UK Leader of MMB, said: “As the volume of daily tasks continues to soar for HR professionals and small businesses, streamlined tools to ease the burden of benefits management are crucial to driving employee engagement and in turn, productivity”.

“Many employees remain unaware of the vast array of benefits available to them. Elect Engage provides a direct link between employees and their benefits, while also easing the daily administration and management for the employer. The platform brings together the best of our benefits in one place for the mutual benefit of businesses and their workforces.”

Benefits of the Elect Engage digital solution include:

  • Easy access - all employers have to do is sign up to start accessing the platform for their business and employees
  • Access to favourable rates for insurance quotes and benefits purchased online from Mercer Marsh Benefits’ providers
  • Employee data can be stored in one place, with simple tools to add and remove new joiners and leavers, and a store for all related benefits documentation
  • HR professionals can create reports, scheduling them to run automatically, as required
  • Possibility to upgrade to a full HR suite with enhanced HR solutions for running small to medium sized businesses

Mercer’s platform is powered by bob, a transformative HR tech platform that helps high-growth companies engage with their employees and develop their culture.
