International Benefits Case Study #2

A Nashville-based retail company has international operations in 10 countries. The benefit programs in these countries have been managed by local HR representatives with very little oversight from the HQ Benefits group. In recent years, the cost of these benefit programs has increased significantly. Questions are being asked by the VP of Human Resources regarding the cost efficiency as well as the overall global governance associated with these programs.

 How Spectrum Helped

  • Evaluated global benefit funding strategies such as multinational pooling and captive financing

  • Assisted with implementation and management of benefits funding strategies

  • Developed a benefits governance model

  • Built and maintained a global benefits inventory database to store plan details

  • Created a compliance checklist to ensure local country as well as global compliance 

International Benefits Case Study #1

An Atlanta-based textile company acquires a company with a small manufacturing facility in Mexico. The U.S. Benefits Manager is asked to assume global benefits responsibility for the 30 employees living/working in Mexico. While she has extensive benefits experience in the U.S., she has never been involved in managing benefits outside the U.S.

 How Spectrum Helped
  • Evaluated the plans in Mexico for cost efficiency and competitiveness

  • Benchmarked the plans against industry and proxy peers

  • Analyzed plans relative to company total compensation objectives

  • Created a compliance checklist to ensure local country compliance
