Merck is honored to be named a 2020 Military Friendly® Silver Employer, marking the eleventh consecutive year the company has received the Military Friendly® designation. The Military Friendly Employers list has come to set the standard for organizations to provide the best opportunities for veterans and their spouses.

The Military Friendly Employers list provides a comprehensive guide of the finest choices for employment opportunities for veterans and their families. The prestigious designation is determined by the use of both public and government data sources as well as responses from a comprehensive survey completed by the employer.

Merck is proud to give veterans the opportunity to launch a new career while continuing their tradition of service to our great nation.  The company has a number of programs in place to proactively support employees who are members of the Guard and Reserve during active duty mobilizations.

“Bringing veterans into our company is an opportunity to leverage and benefit from diverse perspectives, experiences and leadership capabilities, enriching our organization at every level,” says Sandra Milligan, senior vice president of Global Regulatory Affairs and Clinical Safety and executive sponsor of the Veteran’s Employee Business Resource Group.
