The Trend of Going Global 

Even though multinational employers operate in diverse international economies, the challenges they face are universal. Driven by costs and enabled by technology, companies from all over the world are aggressively pursuing global markets. For example, 75,000 U.S. companies — many of which are leading law firms, insurance agencies and software corporations — operate in more than one country. With some many employees spread across the globe, effective management processes will be required to leverage benefits solutions more efficiently on a multinational level.

Among U.S. employers with international operations…

71% of those who use multinational pooling feel the benefits they offer are “better than competitors or the best in the industry in meeting the diverse needs of employees.” Only 41% of those who do not use pooling feel the same way

More than half (55%) of U.S. employers with international operations believe wellness programs are a very important benefits strategy

Companies that implement a global benefits strategy may see results on many levels including:

  • An increase in employee retention and loyalty through competitive offerings on a global level
  • More effective administrative controls and information flows
  • Economies of scale through multinational pooling
  • A competitive advantage through local and global recognition as a desirable employer

The Global Benefits Conference® will address:

  • Global Employee Assistance Programs
  • New Advances in Benefits Tools & Technologies
  • Global Governance
  • Going Global -BRICS & Beyond
  • Global Wellness
  • International Assignments
  • Multinational Pooling
