"We seek to shape a workplace where colleagues feel valued and are embraced for their individuality. At Marsh, our approach to inclusion and diversity is driven by deliberate diversity, facilitating a culture of inclusion and understanding, and enhancing the colleague experience." — Chris Lay, CEO, Marsh UK&I
Our Commitment to Action
Marsh is committed to creating a truly inclusive and equal workplace, one that inspires authenticity at work and supports our clients, colleagues and communities.
We have a number of a number of business resource groups (BRGs) across our Marsh McLennan businesses in Ireland, to create greater links amongst all of our colleagues in Ireland and to use our collective efforts to promote a vibrant, diverse and inclusive culture.
These include Gender Balance, Access ABILITIES, LGBT+, Parents & Carers Network, Racial & Ethnic Diversity, Mental Health and Rising Professionals. With executive sponsorship at the helm, our BRG groups host events throughout the year to increase awareness and understanding of differences and to help address bias and foster a culture of belonging through communications and educational events.
LGBTQ+ and Equality
We want to actively encourage an open inclusive and supportive workplace allowing our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBTQ+) colleagues to feel confident bringing their whole selves to work, carry out their role to the best of their abilities and further their careers in an environment where they can thrive.
To do this we champion an inclusive and progressive LGBTQ+ workplace and ensure our policies are inclusive and positively impact our LGBTQ+ culture and communities.
Our gender objectives focus on engaging women and men across the organisation to attract, develop and retain women at all levels. To do this we provide a wide range of support to our colleagues, to ensure that they are able to find the needed work/life balance and by building a pipeline of future female leaders.
An inclusive diverse environment is fundamental to ensuring that our colleagues feel engaged, supported, connected and valued. To help to improve race equality within Marsh Ireland we provide inclusion training for all people managers and through our Race & Ethnic Diversity BRG, help to create a more diverse and inclusive work environment for colleagues from diverse cultures and ethnicities.
Our Gender Pay Gap Report
Please find attached, our inaugural gender pay gap report for Marsh Ireland. This report details the gender pay gap at Marsh Ireland, in accordance with the legislative requirements introduced earlier this year, which we welcome.
As part of Marsh’s commitment to creating a truly inclusive work environment, we are taking action to improve diversity and close our gender pay gap. Our 2022 Ireland Gender Pay Report explains the reasons why we have a gender pay gap and the steps we are taking to address our gender pay gap.
