Top Employer certificate: We are one of the world's best employers

Our company is one of the world’s best employers. This has now been officially verified with the Global Top Employer 2017 certificate. This award is conferred by the independent Top Employers Institute. In its annual international research, the Institute recognizes those companies that provide excellent conditions for its employees, nurture and develop talented people throughout all levels, and always strive to optimize its employment practices. In 2017, only ten companies around the world were awarded the global certificate.
Specifically, the Netherlands-based Top Employers Institute assesses the following criteria:
  • Talent development
  • Workforce planning
  • Integration of new employees
  • Learning and development
  • Performance management
  • Executive development
  • Career and succession planning
  • Compensation and benefits
  • Corporate culture
In addition to the global certification, we received regional certifications in Asia/Pacific, Europe, the Middle East, Latin America, and North America.

Publication of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany.
There are two different, unaffiliated companies that use the name MERCK. Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, which operates this website, uses the firm name “Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany,” in the United States and Canada, and also uses “EMD Serono” in biopharma, “MilliporeSigma” in life science and “EMD Performance Materials” in materials business. The other company, Merck & Co., Inc. holds the rights in the trademark MERCK in the United States and Canada. Merck & Co. is not affiliated with or related to Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, which owns the MERCK trademark in all other countries of the world.   To reflect such fact and to avoid any confusion, certain logos, terms and business descriptions of the publications on this website have been substituted or modified, such as by referring to “Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany” instead of “Merck” standing alone.  Publications on this webpage, therefore, slightly deviate from the otherwise identical versions accessible outside the United States and Canada.
