The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the world. Whilst the pandemic has severely curtailed international travel, many companies continue to operate in global talent markets and we have seen an upswing in cross-border deals. We have shared global perspectives in our webinar, with voices from Mercer experts from around the world.


On Tuesday, 13th July 2021 at 13.00-15.00, UK time, Amanda Flint chaired a Mercer | Kepler Zoom call, with presentations from our team below. The focus was on global remuneration. We looked at business-as-usual trends and considered the immediate and medium-term implications emerging from the recent explosion in Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) and Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC) transactions. Our speakers were:


  • Teresa Bayewitz, a Partner in Mercer’s New York office, presented recent developments in the US market, including the rise of IPOs and SPAC transactions;
  • Nishant Mahajan, our Asia Practice Leader explored trends in the various main Asian markets, including remuneration practices in both local companies and multinationals; and
  • Peter Boreham, our European Practice Leader, discussed remuneration developments in the rest of Europe.
