Our business is about protecting people’s lives and livelihoods, while enabling growth and innovation – often in areas that need it most. We apply our professional skills and the energies of our more than 60,000 colleagues to the communities around us.
Every year, Marsh & McLennan Companies gives all employees around the globe a day to volunteer.
We have donated more than 184,000 hours to volunteering in 2016.
Here are some of the ways you can make a difference at Marsh & McLennan:
STEPPING UP TO LOCAL CHALLENGES
People at Marsh & McLennan companies are prodigious volunteers. We admire colleagues who play a role in their communities, and give them time to do so. Every one of our hundreds of offices embraces local causes where we can have greatest impact. Individual colleagues use our offices as hubs to rally support for causes that move them.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN CRITICAL MOMENTS
When disaster strikes, our colleagues are often among the first responders. Marsh and Guy Carpenter make detailed impact analyses public to help local leaders prepare and respond more effectively. We partner with Red Cross/Red Crescent and the International Rescue Committee, too.
BUILDING HEALTHIER, MORE RESILIENT SOCIETIES
We use our know-how to improve how people live. Our experts on pandemics play key roles in preventing and containing outbreaks. We use our analyses of aging populations, refugee flows, and healthcare outcomes to advise on policy and help our clients and our communities apply best practices.
We are working to bring microfinance and mobile banking to scale, helping people in some of Earth’s poorest areas start small businesses and save. We advocate for opportunity for women and girls around the world — $13 trillion in untapped economic potential. And we support educational programs that prepare at-risk youth for the world of work.
MULTIPLYING THE POWER OF NONPROFITS
We enjoy enduring worldwide partnerships with The Red Cross and Red Crescent Society, Junior Achievement, and the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women, whose mentoring programs are creating more financially independent women and stronger societies in 80 countries.
Our colleagues around the world help hundreds of other nonprofits strengthen their organizations and manage risks, so these often financially fragile organizations can maximize the good they do for years to come.
Corporate citizenship is a core part of our commitment to acting for the greater good, and it's also a business issue. — Dan Glaser, President and CEO, Marsh & McLennan Companies
THE ENVIRONMENT IS EVERYBODY’S BUSINESS
We advise clients on how environmental factors affect location, operational and strategic decisions. As risk advisors, we are documenting the effects of climate change, and shaping mitigation strategies. One example: by reducing the uncertainties of renewable energy sources, we are enabling wider adoption by providers and utilities to bring them to scale. Meanwhile, our “people” experts are helping transform client organizations to make sustainable practices part of the culture.
Before we advise clients, we try to lead the way ourselves. Marsh & McLennan Companies has improved its performance in the CDP S&P 500 Climate Disclosure Leadership Index every year since 2010.
