The Trend of Going Global

Even though multinational employers operate in diverse international economies, the challenges translate in a common language.

Driven by costs and enabled by technology, companies are aggressively pursuing global markets. Did you know that 75,000 U.S. companies - many of which are leading law firms, insurance agencies and software corporations -- operate in more than one country? Another 9 percent is expected to expand on this growing trend annually.

As the trend of globalization continues, so does the complexity and need for developing a global benefits strategy. During these challenging economic times, effective management processes will be required to leverage benefits solutions more efficiently on a multinational level.

According to a 2009 MetLife Study of Employee Benefits Trends, 59% of U.S. corporations with multinational operations consider “consolidating all benefits administration onto a common platform” to be one of their top priorities — even higher than their peers from U.S. domestic-only corporations (45%).

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; and 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
  • Mandatory Retirement
