Mercer Human Resources bringing actuarial jobs to city
New York City-based Mercer Human Resource Consulting LLC, which previously announced tentative plans to add 103 jobs with an estimated annual payroll of $6.56 million, has decided to bring those jobs to Louisville.
The international HR firm sought state tax incentives for the local expansion, in which Mercer will consolidate much of its actuarial work in Louisville.
As Business First reported in late September, the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority granted Mercer preliminary approval for up to $2.8 million in tax credits for up to 10 years.
But at the time, firm officials had not determined whether the positions would be located in Louisville and were considering locations in other countries, including Ireland, India and South Africa.
