Our company’s greatest strength is the collective talent of our people. The more diverse our backgrounds and experiences, the more we can achieve working together. We believe that inclusion means more than acceptance – it means belonging. We deliver our diversity and inclusion ambitions through our Colleague Resource Groups (CRGs), which includes PRIDE and Young Professionals.
We are committed to investing in programs which benefit and support the communities in which we work and belong. Through our relationships, we’re able to make a positive, sustainable impact on our global and local communities. In Australia, this includes our relationship with The Clontarf Foundation, whilst globally this includes The British Red Cross, The Cherie Blair Foundation, and Junior Achievement.
All employees at Marsh have access to one paid day each year to participate in volunteering. In May, we celebrate Global Volunteer Month, where our colleagues across the globe take part in giving back to their communities. You’ll also have the opportunity to participate in extra volunteering days with your graduate cohort from across Australia.
The Marsh PRIDE Resource Group strives to foster an inclusive environment by raising awareness of LGBTIQ+ issues, building a culture of empowerment, providing networking opportunities and helping to drive business development. Marsh Australia PRIDE was launched in 2019 and works closely with Marsh PRIDE Resource Groups globally as well as PRIDE networks across other companies in the insurance industry and the Barangaroo precinct.
Reconciliation Action Plan
We live by the principles of diversity and inclusion. We’re dedicated to making a sustainable contribution to the greater inclusion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the communities and workplaces in areas where we operate. In alignment with our global core commitment of ‘Living the Greater Good’, we have committed to a journey of reconciliation and are proud to share our inaugural Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). Our RAP is a blue print for our work with colleagues and contacts within our sphere of influence, which aims to build an increased awareness and recognition of the importance of reconciliation actions. Learn more about our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan.
Our Women and Allies at Marsh (WAM) Colleague Resource Group was launched last year. This year, WAM ran an entire week of events around the International Women’s day theme ‘Choose to Challenge,’ where we celebrated the diversity within our organisation, and working with our allies, champions and engaging external experts to build real practical skills. WAM is proud to support the Share the Dignity Charity
Marsh is a proud member of the Australian Network on Disability (AND). Partnering with AND helps us to create an inclusive workforce and reflect the community in which we operate. You can learn more about AND here: https://www.and.org.au/
In 2020, Marsh put the call out for colleagues to participate in a colleague-led resource group called Mental Health @ Marsh (MH@M). MH@M’s mission is to promote mental health and wellbeing, challenge stigmas and encourage change at Marsh to facilitate a safe and open environment that enables all employees to bring their full selves to work each day. Underpinning this mission was the theme of connection and making it common-place to ask those simple, but impactful, words – “RUOK?”
