Managing Benefit Programs for Internationally Mobile Employees
An important, but complicated, aspect of international assignments is protecting the health and retirement benefits of the key talent sent abroad. Employers need a manageable and transparent process that provides a positive experience for assignees, whilst at the same time controlling costs and complying with local legislation. As mobility programs expand, diversify, and become more complex from assignment policy segmentation, the complications grow harder to manage. International assignee benefits need to be carefully assessed and defined for each assignment type. Mercer Marsh Benefits is uniquely qualified to provide consultation solutions with these priorities in mind.
