New Zealand, Wellington

For most customers, retirement seems a long way off, and many are reluctant to make short-term sacrifices in service of their long-term interests.

Mercer is delighted to be recognised for the sixth consecutive year at the Workplace Savings NZ Awards last night in the “Best Other Communication (Workplace Savings or Kiwisaver)” category, for customer communication excellence and innovation. Our “Top up to Cash in” campaign was developed to encourage Mercer KiwiSaver members to obtain the full value of their available member tax credits.

During the campaign, over 10,000 KiwiSaver members topped up their accounts with 1,300 doing so for the first time – what a fantastic result!

Judges' comments      

We are very pleased the judging panel of members from the Commission for Financial Literacy, Write Limited, Alexander & Associates and an independent Journalist, Helen Twose, recognised Mercer. They noted this year’s submissions were of a very high standard, so to take out a top award and be a finalist in two other categories was an incredible achievement

Mercer KiwiSaver Scheme Annual Report was also recognised as a finalist in the “Annual Reporting of the Year – KiwiSaver” category.
