While DEI has long been an important business and societal topic, 2020 amplified the need to include specific and measurable DEI initiatives in the workplace. How and what DEI analytics employers look for and measure in their Total Rewards programs varies greatly. Some components of a Total Rewards program such as compensation and Pay Equity have a well-established DEI framework while others such as health plans are in the formative stages. Participants will hear from three Mercer thought leaders each with expertise related to DEI analytics and their development and application to Retirement Plans, Employee Benefits and Compensation.
