Complex benefits across multiple countries
Our consultants support a varied portfolio of employers in industries including;
- Financial Services
- Non-Governmental Organisations
- Natural Resources
- Professional Services
We have unrivalled expertise and a strong track record delivering complex international benefits advice across multiple jurisdictions. We support our international clients in four key ways:
1. Benefits cost management
In addition to monitoring and controlling benefit costs, we also offer risk analysis and mitigation, plan design optimisation and claims data analysis to assist employers in managing and monitoring spend.
We will ensure that your plans are exploited to their optimum benefit level and that each product or service is used in the most cost-effective way possible to minimise the increasing cost of premiums.
2. Employee engagement
We help you to raise employee awareness and appreciation of their benefits via the latest technology such as online health portals and feedback mechanisms.
By leveraging every touchpoint with your employees to educate and inform them on key benefit features, (for example, the breadth and quality of hospitals and consultants available to them in each country), we use technology at each point to make the claims journey and your employees’ lives as easy as possible.
3. Global governance and oversight
We provide clients with up-to-date compliance and regulatory information for their internationally mobile employees. Where necessary, our representatives on the ground assist with additional governance, which is increasingly required in highly regulated jurisdictions. At present, countries which mandate expatriate benefits to stringent regulations include:
- Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
- United Arab Emirates (including Abu Dhabi)
- United States of America
- The Netherlands
In some cases, fines, revocation of trade licenses and employee work visas will be levied if employers fail to comply with legislation.
4. Client support and strong insurer management
Our highly proactive approach to account management means that we often become a virtual extension of our clients’ HR and global benefits team.
Far from merely broking benefits, we negotiate on your behalf with our insurer partners across the globe, achieving the best possible outcomes for our clients.
