Mercer Marsh Benefits research: People Risk 2024

Increasing health and benefit costs are the most pressing concern for HR and risk professionals

This report captures the attitudes of more than 4,500 senior HR and risk professionals around the world, about the most significant people risks facing their organisations.

It analyses 25 people risks across five key themes: technological change and disruption; talent, leadership and workforce practices; health, wellbeing and safety; governance, compliance and financial; and environment, sustainability and protection.

 The top risk is the growing cost of health and benefits. Other risk in the top 10 for HR professionals include talent, leadership and workforce practice concerns, such as labour shortages. Risk professionals place a slightly greater focus on technological change and business disruption. 

Key findings

  • The second most pressing concern for both HR and risk professionals is labour shortages.
  • Disparities in reward for executives and workers is also a key risk
  • 97% say HR and risk functions in their organisations collaborate to mitigate people risk.
