HOW WE OPERATE

Our goal is to lead the way to a healthier future. But we also care about how we get there together.

As a company whose products touch the lives and well being of people around the world, we hold ourselves to a high standard. And we expect others to hold us to that same high standard.

We believe in operating openly, honestly and with the highest degree of ethics and integrity. This includes:

  • making sure that the company complies with all applicable laws and regulations globally;
  • continually reinforcing our overall commitment to ethical business practices and behavior, at every level of the company, through the Merck Office of Ethics and our company's code of conduct; and
  • safeguarding individual privacy expectations through our global privacy program.

Diversity at Merck

We also value the diverse contributions of our employees around the world, and are committed to creating a workplace that is open, welcome and respectful of all of our employees.

These values and principles are at the heart of who we are as a company.

Ethics in the Workplace
