In 2010, executive leadership at Marsh committed to making the company a great place to work. Their solution involved using cutting-edge social technology to create a global community where employees could tap into the collective experience, networks and resources of the firm. This was a bold move in the traditionally conservative insurance industry. The result, Marsh University, launched in 2010 and has had a significant impact.
Since its inception in 2010, Marsh University has proven a valuable tool for Marsh employees, as well as for the company as a whole. In fact, Marsh now leads in employee engagement across all Marsh & McLennan companies. According to Ben Brooks, Marsh’s SVP and Global Director, Enterprise Communications and Colleague Engagement, some of the other benefits realized include:
- Improved performance on growth initiatives.
- Year-over-year improvement in career and employee development.
- Improved perception of leadership.
- Reinvigorated company culture.
