Diversity and inclusion are an integral part of our business practices, and we value and foster diversity and inclusion in our workforce. At Merck, we hire and develop the best people, who together understand the varied demands of a global market.

CELEBRATING DIVERSITY

Our commitment to diversity doesn't stop at hiring: To ensure that we foster a culture of inclusion, we design educational programs and encourage leadership behaviors around perceptions of fairness and respect, value, and feeling a sense of belonging. We actively leverage the wealth of knowledge, insights, and perspectives of all employees in an open, trusting, non-judgmental workplace—one where everyone feels they are known, valued and respected.

We are working to encourage diversity and inclusion in everything we do to benefit our customers and our company.
