Since Mercer Marketplace was launched in January, it has been expanded to offer voluntary benefits to employees and dependents that are not eligible for company-sponsored medical benefits. This provides added flexibility to employers who are developing strategies for various parts of their workforce.

About Mercer Marketplace

Mercer Marketplace allows employers to continue offering competitive benefits to their workforce, a key attraction and retention tool, while actively managing their spending and administrative responsibilities. Employers have the flexibility to determine how much to contribute toward the cost of their benefits program and can select from a wide range of insured and self-funded products to offer to their workforce. The platform includes full benefits outsourcing and will provide employees with call center and online decision support during the enrollment process and beyond. More information about Mercer Marketplace is available from Mercer consultants and online at www.mercermarketplace.com.
