At Marsh, we believe that it is essential to embed diversity and inclusion in our day-to-day business operations, creating one mission, vision, and purpose across the organisation. Deeply rooted in our values and principles is the need to respect each colleague as an individual at Marsh. Colleagues are our most valued asset.
Diversity of thought, opinions, and skills set Marsh apart and help enable us to improve the services we provide to our clients.
We deliberately chose “inclusive” as one of our operating principles because we believe that being open to diverse ideas, experiences, and backgrounds is good for our colleagues, clients, and, ultimately, our business.
In New Zealand, Marsh has established a Diversity and Inclusion Council comprising colleagues from different backgrounds, practices and regions within the business. The aim of the Council is to “recognise, respect and value people’s differences to contribute and realise their full potential by promoting an inclusive culture for all colleagues” - Alison Bamford, Mercer Marsh Benefits Leader and Diversity Council Leader NZ.
