Corporate Consulting

Support on employer related benefits to review risks and identify opportunities in relation to HR corporate strategy.

Our clients face complex challenges in a world that is constantly changing economically, geopolitically and demographically. The risk profiles facing companies are becoming increasingly interrelated and this recent dynamic also creates new opportunities. Reviewing the approach to risk management that has a direct impact on business strategy, in a world where these risks are now more severe, is now a priority for our clients.

Getting access to clear insights

The needs of our clients are changing, especially in the rapidly changing benefit and retirement landscape of Switzerland. The level of information available in the public domain and on the Internet continues to grow at a record pace. Finding and identifying relevant information to establish a clear vision of current challenges is becoming difficult in a world where companies are increasingly risk-averse. Today, making the right benefits management decision, both from a human and financial point of view, has become more difficult.
