Health & benefits


The Marsh Employee Benefits Practice has been caring for New Zealand employees for more than 25 years. In 2014 we aligned with our sister company Mercer to create Mercer Marsh Benefits, thus becoming the largest group employee benefits broker in New Zealand. We are now able to offer our clients an even broader range of employee benefit products and services.  Our experienced team of professionals can help you to differentiate your company by developing a benefits programme for your staff, which can be either employer and / or employee funded benefits.

Protect your most important assets

Every business needs to protect its assets, and your directors or partners and employees are often the most valuable and hardest to replace asset your business has.


Effective planning and communication play an important part in recruiting, retaining, and motivating staff.


An employee benefits package helps you to attract and retain high calibre people to work in your business - by providing them with affordable and valued benefits in addition to their basic salary package.


Our team of employee benefits specialists have a combined knowledge of over 50 years in the industry and can help your business with:


  • Designing benefit packages - for employers to offer to their staff


  • Negotiating policy wordings - to ensure the most appropriate insurance covers


  • Insurance broking services - getting competitive rates for your employee benefits package


  • Scheme administration - leaving your HR and payroll teams more time to get on with people management


  • A benefits portal - easy online access for your staff to access a range of personal insurance products


  • New product design - if required we can tailor products specifically to meet the needs of your staff
