Nov 15, 2017 8:00 AM ET

Marsh & McLennan Companies is a global professional services firm offering clients advice and solutions in risk, strategy and people. This week, the company published its fifth Corporate Citizenship Report.

Our view of corporate citizenship is broad and multidimensional. Through a busi­ness lens, our clients rely on us for trusted advice on challenges that play out across social, political and environmental issues. Beyond commercial success, however, our commitment to living the greater good is reflected in our culture of mutual respect and inclusion — and in our efforts to inspire our colleagues to learn new skills, give back to their communities and act with integrity in all that they do,” said Dan Glaser, President and Chief Executive Officer, Marsh & McLennan Companies
The report is divided into four sections: Our Community, Our Environment, Our People and Our Work.

Highlights from each of these areas include:

  • Marsh & McLennan colleagues volunteered in more than 50 countries in 2016, an increase of 300% in participating countries since 2012.
