Mercer | Gender Diversity Targets

WE’RE ON A MISSION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF WOMEN AT WORK

At Mercer, we are committed to accelerating the advancement of women at work, both inside and outside our firm. We know that when women thrive, businesses and societies thrive.

We are proud to be delivering on our mission to ensure our colleagues reach their own full potential – through bringing their whole selves to work, having diverse successful role models to look up to, and being rewarded fairly and equally.

At Mercer we make a difference in the health, wealth and career of over 115 million people every day around the world. We know that we can do this only because of the efforts of each and every one of our colleagues. That is why rewarding our employees fairly is fundamental to our business.

Our commitment is evident through our EDGE certification, being on The Times UK Top 50 Employers for Women list again in 2018, as signatories to the Women in Finance Charter and our extensive global gender parity research project “When Women Thrive”. In the UK we have introduced targets to increase our most senior female population (at senior Principal and Partner level) to 30% by 2020 and are nearly there already. We have a majority female Board (4 women and 3 men) with a female Chair and female CEO, and a gender balanced UK Executive Leadership team. We have a strong culture of adaptive working and gender balanced Partner promotions.
