Evaluating your pay strategy

As you advance along your digital journey, your compensation strategy and the type of positions critical to your organization will likely change. Identifying new skill sets, hiring strategically, and effectively motivating employees will be vital to taking your company into the future. Mercer's financial services salary surveys give you the data you need to ensure that your compensation strategy is appropriate now and well positioned to support your future growth, paying what you need to pay, both now and into the future.

Listening to your people

Employee engagement is key to leading with empathy, which according to Mercer's Global Talent Trends report, is a top concern for employers. But employee engagement is not a one-size-fits-all approach. And deploying an engagement survey is not the first step. Ensure your human resources team takes a look at engagement tools that can help you get the best out of your brightest by listening to your employees across the financial services industry.

Refreshing your policies

Do your policies and practices need to be revamped, given how quickly the work world has changed? Mercer's reports cover that and more, such as relocation, compensation administration, paid time off, flexible working, and benefits and perks. All go into creating an employee value proposition that supports your talent strategy. Find the information you need today for the financial industry.
