Leading the Change We Want to See

Our commitment to diversity is critical for attracting talented people, serving clients, and generating creative business solutions.
"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.

Gender Equality

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. 

Race Equality

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

Marsh McLennan Group is one of the world’s leading professional services firms with a focus on risk, strategy, and people. Marsh McLennan Group Ireland includes the legal entities Mercer (Ireland) Ltd, Mercer Global Investments Europe Ltd, Irish Pensions Trust Limited, Marsh Employee Benefits Ltd, Marsh Management Services (Dublin) Ltd and Marsh McLennan Innovation Centre Ireland. This report details the gender pay gap at Marsh McLennan Ireland in line with the rules laid out by the government, which we welcome. The gender pay gap is measured using broad means and medians drawn from the entirety of our team. It takes no account of the different roles and levels occupied by individuals. The gender pay gap does not measure whether pay is equal. Equal pay requires that individuals within particular roles are paid equitably for the same work, allowing for differences in factors such as experience, performance or skills we review pay for colleagues as part of our annual compensation process. It is perfectly possibly for an organisation that applies equal pay principles to have a gender pay gap. This typically arises where men and women are unevenly represented in different roles and levels of the organisation. This is the case at Marsh McLennan Ireland, where our gender pay gap arises primarily from having more men than women in our most senior grades. We are committed to moving towards a more even gender split at all levels of the company.
