As businesses and individuals look to manage risks and mitigate losses during times of change, the insurance industry always plays a critical role. While each sub-sector of the industry is experiencing today’s changes differently, evaluating the technical skills needed to better engage clients while at the same time handling an increase in request volume is common. A competitive pay strategy is key to finding and keeping the talent you need to effectively address these needs and stay ahead of the competition.

The US FSS: Insurance module arms you with the robust data you need to compensate top talent competitively. Benchmark your strategy against data from more than 260 organizations on over 140 jobs across 17 position families.

Analyze the data by industry type, such as:

  • Commercial Bank
  • Diversified Financial
  • Life Insurance
  • Property & Casualty
  • Workers Compensation

Current, reliable data
In light of the economic and workforce changes brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, Mercer conducted a “data refresh” in August to address any market movement that occurred after the initial survey participation period. You will receive the results of the refresh free with your purchase.

This added step to ensure you have access to the most current, reliable data means you can move forward confidently with your pay decisions knowing that your data accurately reflect the market.

Are you ready to embrace a data-driven compensation strategy?
