    Pandemic accelerates employer voluntary benefit offerings, Willis Towers Watson survey finds

    Growth seen in critical illness, identity theft and pet insurance benefitsARLINGTON, Va., May 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The pandemic is driving more employers to offer voluntary benefits, with nearly all employers (94%) expecting these employee-pay-all or unsubsidized benefits to hold great importance in their organizations during the next three years, according to a survey by Willis Towers Watson (NASDAQ: WLTW), a leading global advisory, broking and solutions company. The Emerging Trends in Health Care Survey found that employer interest in offering voluntary benefits has been burgeoning, with 94% of employers finding voluntary benefits to be important to their employee value proposition and Total Rewards strategy three years from now, compared with just 36% of employers deeming them to be important in 2018. “Employers view voluntary benefits as a cost-effective way to offer employees a wide range of benefit options that best meet their needs,” said Lydia Jilek, senior director, Voluntary Benefits Solutions, Willis Towers Watson. “The pandemic has given rise to an increase in benefits that protect employees against big hospital bills and loss of income, and provide personal protection.” Survey identifies top five fastest growing benefits As employers face a different landscape, they are proactively expanding their voluntary benefits to address new trends and better meet the needs of a diverse workforce, especially those affected by the pandemic. The top five fastest growing benefits are: Voluntary benefitCurrently offered Will offer by 2022 or beyondPercentage point changeIdentify theft53%78%+25%Hospital indemnity42%65%+23%Pet insurance47%69%+22%Critical illness57%76%+19%Group legal58%75%+17% The survey also found that the following voluntary offerings are among the most widespread benefits, services and perks that employers currently offer or are planning to offer over the next two years: Financial planning/counseling through an existing vendor (93%)Tuition reimbursement programs (88%)Telephonic financial planning/counseling (77%)Onsite fitness center (54%)Backup childcare (48%)Elder care (44%) “Our research shows that employees are craving more voluntary and flexible benefits,” said Jilek. “Employers are supplementing existing core benefits with more personalized benefits to provide additional ways to support their employees’ overall wellbeing and enhance the perceived value of their benefit offerings — including adding voluntary benefits to the core benefits administration flow.”About the surveyA total of 446 employers participated in the 2021 Emerging Trends in Health Care Survey, which was conducted between February 23 and March 12, 2021. Among those, 238 employers, who employ 3.7 million workers, responded to the voluntary benefits section of the survey.

    Willis Towers Watson launches working group to explore "new breed" of investment manager

    ARLINGTON, Va., May 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Willis Towers Watson has launched a dedicated working group that brings together expertise from both its public and private equity investment research teams, to assess the potential for what it calls a “new breed” of investment management firm that invests across the entire equity spectrum. The working group, which was established in March 2021, will actively evaluate opportunities in the public/private equity space. In its recent paper, titled “Institutional allocation to private equity,” Willis Towers Watson has shown that while there are strong structural tailwinds to support the continuing rise of private equity in institutional portfolios, the private equity industry itself needs to evolve more actively the way in which it structures its investments in order to fully capture the growth potential. One of the focus areas for Willis Towers Watson’s working group is the potential for a new type of passive, or beta, offering within private equity that allows asset owners to access and hold these investments in a cost-effective way. Since many private businesses are already well established with strong management in place and strong cash flows, the working group believes those businesses are well positioned to compound earnings over a longer time horizon than current structures allow. Furthermore, Willis Towers Watson is challenging private equity managers to take additional steps to improve their environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards. As part of this effort, it has developed a set of guiding principles to help them formulate their own frameworks, including assisting them to report on the carbon emissions being generated by their investments as a first step on a route toward net zero. “What we currently have within the private equity space is a model that hasn’t changed in the past few decades,” said Andrew Brown, head of Private Equity Research at Willis Towers Watson. “While that structure has performed well over this period, we are increasingly seeing capital moving away from defined benefit pension schemes into defined contribution, so there is a need to innovate in order to identify a structure that enables a wider investor base to access opportunities. “This could mean relooking entirely at the way that some private equity funds are structured. For example, specific fund terms can mean that private equity managers may be under pressure to sell out of investments prematurely in order to facilitate further fundraising, whereas long-dated funds and evergreen structures could be a way of mitigating the need to do so. This could facilitate the creation of a form of ‘buy and maintain’ private equity that may better suit an investor with a longer-term investment horizon.” About Willis Towers Watson Willis Towers Watson (NASDAQ: WLTW) is a leading global advisory, broking and solutions company that helps clients around the world turn risk into a path for growth.
