Diversity & inclusion fuels our mission

We are deeply committed to fostering an inclusive environment that embraces and values varied skills, experiences, backgrounds, and cultural perspectives. MSD has a long-standing commitment to creating an organisation that is diverse and a culture that is inclusive and socially responsible.

 

Our workforce represents the people we serve

 

Diversity and inclusion (D&I) are not just words – they are the reason we are able to deliver on our promise to invent for life. We foster a diverse workforce where employees feel comfortable bringing their unique perspectives and their whole self to work.

But diversity is only half of the story; inclusion is just as important. Inclusion means a sense of belonging. When our employees know they are crucial to our mission, not only will they thrive, but our company will, too

Flexibility

Flexible working means our employees don’t have to choose between work and leading fulfilling personal lives. At MSD, flexible work plans include part-time, job sharing, compressed work weeks, flexible work hours, purchased annual leave, remote working and other hybrid arrangements to fit both individual needs and those of our business.

Our suppliers should be as diverse as the patients we serve

Our diverse supplier base helps us understand the needs of our people and patients. That’s why we engage a wide range of partners.
