Like many of us, I’m sure you wish you had an extra pair of hands and a few more hours in the day.
If you’re trying to manage employee benefits, compensation, and health and safety for more than one country, with all the recent governmental programs, your head is probably spinning. How many websites or sources do you have to scour to make sure you’re in compliance while still adhering to your employee value proposition and optimizing your resources?
Don’t you wish there were an easy way to keep track of the many countries under your purview — a report or “dashboard” that would let you identify any changes that impact your employees? One source that would mean you didn’t have to call local management or spend hours on government websites trying to keep up?
Used in conjunction with Mercer’s Worldwide Benefit & Employment Guidelines, or “WBEG” for short, our new Government Assistance & Supplemental Programs, aka GASP, gives you the added insight to understand what impact COVID-19 is having on workplaces around the world. Yes, you read that right, with an additional subscription, the GASP tool gives you 12 months access and is regularly updated by our researchers, analysts, and consultants, and includes publicly available data as well, to ensure you have the best information at your fingertips. As the pandemic and its impact evolves in various countries, you’ll be able to easily keep up and make changes rapidly.
“Why do I need both tools?” you may be thinking. Well, that’s a good question! Put simply, WBEG will provide you with guidance on the regulatory requirements and provisions that you as an employer need to provide your employees. In addition, where available, we also provide you with insight as to trends in benefits and compensation that we’re seeing from companies — offerings that meet requirements, and maybe go beyond. Think of WBEG as the tool you need every year.
GASP, however, is providing you with additional insight given the current labor market and economic climate. What support is being provided by governments in Europe? What is the impact on employee benefits across Asia? Each country is experiencing a different level of impact and has, therefore, made different provisions for workers and employers. And what they’re providing is constantly changing — let Mercer help you keep track.
Here are a few examples of how GASP can help you stay up to date on temporary changes due to COVID-19.
