GLOBAL - Mercer Human Resource Consulting has broken up its international consulting team led by Giles Archibald.
In a private memo to employees, Michael Caulfield, president, Mercer HR told staff the new organisational structure will better leverage the skills of the international group to assist in growing business with global organisations.
In the old model, the international team sat within Global Market Development, a structure which did not maximise its impact and potential, wrote Caulfield.
The majority of the group will move to the retirement practice, where Archibald will have responsibility for global client development.
A number of other consultants will move to the Human Capital, Health and Benefits, or Client Management units of Mercer. Caulfield added: “While this change will better deploy our international capabilities and seed that talent to help the businesses grow global revenue, the Communication specialty business will continue to work in close collaboration with the geographies and businesses to maximise revenue for Mercer.”
The changes are effective 1 January, 2006.
Caulfield took over as president of Mercer HR in September succeeding Brian Storms who was transferred to Marsh Inc.
The Pensions Regulator (TPR) and Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) have launched a refreshed ScamSmart campaign to warn savers about unsolicited pension communications.
Ann Harris OBE and Mike Dailly have been appointed non-executive directors at the upcoming single financial guidance body (SFGB).
Pension schemes are "placing too much focus" on a narrow section of the private debt market where competition is driving down "compelling opportunities", according to Willis Towers Watson.
