Improving employee retirement incomes and employer outcomes

Defined contribution (DC) arrangements, both DC pensions and workplace savings plans such as a Group RRSP or TFSA, support employees to manage financial volatility, market volatility, and long-term financial uncertainty. However, they continue to demand time and resources from employers as the regulatory environment evolves. For employees, defined contribution arrangements need to continue to optimize flexibility, in order to promote financial confidence before retirement and provide access to competitive fees.

A holistic approach to DC plans

Mercer believes that DC plans should be managed holistically, as decisions made in any one area can affect other areas of the plan. To achieve a holistic approach, we believe in aligning organizational objectives with workforce demographics and employee behaviours to identify how employers can help improve retirement outcomes for their employees while meeting workforce management needs.
