Corporate governance of employee benefits is an increasingly important consideration for multinational companies. It is critical for managing costs and risk regardless of whether a company operates in a centralized or decentralized manner.
In the 2012 Corporate Governance of Global Employee Benefits Study, we asked business leaders of multinational organizations about how they make and execute strategic policy decisions related to their employee benefit programs worldwide. We consider levels of centralization of benefit management and satisfaction levels of corporate oversight, and assess how firms measure against effective execution of benefit strategy metrics.
The primary goals of the study are to understand:
1. Why companies want corporate involvement in local benefit decisions.
2. How they exercise corporate oversight and control over local benefit decisions to manage business risks in the three key policy areas: design, financial management and operations.
