Reimagining the Employee Experience and Our Digital Workplace: A Mercer Perspective

Employees expect their employers to provide sophisticated digital tools to enable them to focus on their work and develop fulfilling careers. How can employers ensure they’re designing experiences that will engage employees and win the talent war?

The digital age has afforded many opportunities to enable employees to work remotely and on the go while improving their ability to build their networks, collaborate with their clients, and share content and learning opportunities. What is the digital workplace roadmap — critical to success in the next five years?

Mend the Gap: How to Bring Financial Security to an Aging Workforce in Latin America

Global retirement systems play a critical role in society and impact virtually every major stakeholder group as well as the broader economy and financial system. Historically, public and private institutions had managed and pooled the risks of individuals and guaranteed certain outcomes to individual participants, but that system has slowly been supplanted by one where each individual is personally responsible for his or her retirement and financial well-being.

This is a serious concern in Latin America, as, in general, there is a limited retirement savings culture, the social security systems provide limited coverage and are generally underfunded, and the population is aging. Retirement readiness has become a critical topic for organizations across the region to support a multigenerational workforce, succession planning, attraction and retention.

In this session, we highlight key aspects of Mercer's latest research and explain what these evolving trends mean for the future of retirement. We discuss what stakeholders can do to drive change — from the individual level to the corporate level to the government level. In this discussion, we also share an overview on public and private systems tracked by the Melbourne Mercer Global Pension Index (MMGPI), the world's most comprehensive comparison of global pension systems, measuring 27 systems against more than 40 indicators to gauge their adequacy, sustainability and integrity.
