At Marsh & McLennan, we’re proud of our culture of innovation, collaboration and working for the greater good. Veterans share these qualities, which is why we’re committed to hiring and supporting them.

And now, our efforts have been recognized by one of the top rankings of veteran employers. We’ve been named the #1 overall Military Friendly® employer by Victory Media, which champions positive employment outcomes for veterans and their families. The ranking, a data-driven survey of leading US companies, reflects our commitment to the military community and our veteran colleagues, as well as the constant improvement of our Veteran Talent Initiative (VTI).

Our VTI connects qualified veterans with career opportunities across our operating companies and MMC. One unique new aspect of our veteran hiring program is the “Silver Medalist” initiative, in which we identify talented military veterans who have not received a job offer after their first round of interviews with us, and help them hone their interviewing skills and “redeploy” them to apply for other open positions across the firm.

“Marsh & McLennan Companies is pleased to be recognized as the number one Military Friendly® Employer,” said Dan Glaser, our President and CEO. “Veterans have served our country with distinction, and we are proud to provide them with meaningful opportunities to contribute to our firm. And with every hire, my conviction grows stronger that it is not only the right thing to do, but it is also the best thing to do — for our company, our clients and our colleagues.”

On December 7, the ranking was officially awarded by Chris Hale, CEO of Victory Media, to Dan, the executive sponsors of the VTI, Mercer’s President and CEO Julio A. Portalatin, Marsh & McLennan’s EVP and General Counsel Peter Beshar and Marsh & McLennan’s Chief Human Resources Officer Laurie Ledford.

“We’re honoring Marsh & McLennan because you recognize that veterans are better for their service and are giving them a hand up — not a hand out — to build careers in the corporate world,” said Chris.
