Our Company Culture

Simply put, we come to work because we want to make a difference in people’s lives.

Our fundamental values unite us as a firm — across offices and geographies, businesses and solutions, generations and cultures. More than 28,000 companies and their employees around the world thrive by engaging with Mercer because we believe:

  • People are at the heart of everything. They drive our innovation, our solutions and our passions.
  • The future is made in the actions we take today. Together, we have the power to create healthier, happier and more rewarding tomorrows.
  • This purpose unites our colleagues around the world, and these principles reflect our commitment to the individuals and families whose lives we impact every day.

    We Value Diversity

    Respect for diversity is one of our core values. It’s so important to us that we have a strategy in place to increase the diversity of our workforce and make sure that every unique voice is heard. This is good for our business — diverse work teams tend to have greater success — and good for our colleagues. You know that you can bring your whole self to work every day and that you will be celebrated and appreciated for who you are.
