First-ever survey of employees ranks top 500 US companies
Mercer, a global consulting leader in advancing health, wealth and careers, and a wholly owned subsidiary of Marsh & McLennan Companies (NYSE: MMC), has been named as one of the 2015 Forbes America's Best Employers by Forbes magazine.
"People are at the heart of what we believe makes Mercer a special place to work, and this independent survey – from the voice of employees – is truly a positive moment," said Julio A. Portalatin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mercer. "Together we have forged a values-based culture that is inclusive, respectful and passionate to win. I’m proud of our employees and honored to be awarded this recognition on their behalf. We will continue to work hard to earn the trust of our employees and clients every day.”
Over 20,000 employees at companies with at least 2500 people were surveyed for the America’s Best Employers List. The survey was conducted with global digital data collection partners who use innovative technology and proven sampling methodologies to facilitate a deep understanding of consumer opinions and behavior. Participation in the survey was voluntary, and respondents were recruited from thousands of sources to maximize reach and representation. The rankings of companies in 25 industry sectors reflect a company’s direct referrals -- an employee’s willingness to refer their own company to a prospective employee – as well as indirect referrals from employees of other firms.
