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.
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.
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.
Websites are not the only things that need to be mobile-optimized. Today’s increasingly globalized environment means you need to be ready to mobilize people at every level of your organization. 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 organization’s specific mobility needs, with practical advice behind the hard numbers.
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: reorganizations, 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.
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 organization. Maybe you’re changing your pension plan or moving to a private exchange health plan. How you deliver credible information about organizational 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.
