4. Diversity & Inclusion are a top priority.
In 2020, Marsh and McLennan was awarded one of the best places to work for LGBTQ Equality by the Human Rights Campaign and was included in Bloomberg’s Gender Equality Index. Amy Huang, a Senior Manager for Onsite Technical Support at Marsh and McLennan says “diversity and inclusion unlock potential and create a space where talent can thrive,” which is something she has found while working at Marsh and McLennan.
The company has also taken bold action to take a stand against racial injustice and established a Race Advisory Council to meet with the Executive Committee on a regular basis.

5. Marsh & McLennan thrives on a culture of integrity.
Executives encourage all colleagues to live The Greater Good, which focuses on three key pillars that define success at Marsh and McLennan: win with integrity, know that you are never alone and speak up if something is not right. These culminate into a culture that is committed to the fundamental principles of human dignity, equality and mutual respect, all of which are demonstrated through the company’s dedication to giving back.
