The number of companies in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) offering flexible benefits continues to increase as employers look to remain competitive in the labor market and enhance employee engagement, according to the EMEA Employee Choice in Benefits Survey 2014 by Mercer Marsh Benefits. The survey of 636 employers in 17 countries across EMEA examines the role that employee choice plays in organizations’ health and group benefits programs, and allows companies a look into competitive offerings in individual markets.
“There’s a growing trend of employers offering employees a greater say in selecting benefits that are most important to the individual,” says Damon Robinson, a senior associate in Mercer’s Health & Benefits business in the UK. “We expect this wave to continue as more companies discover that they can implement choice at little or no additional cost and are safe in the knowledge that their employees will be highly satisfied with the greater range of benefit options.”
