Australia leads MMC’s global push for more innovative and collaborative workplaces and workforce
Marsh & McLennan Companies (NYSE: MMC), a global professional services firm with 57,000 employees worldwide, today announced the relocation of its Sydney office to the International Towers Sydney, in the landmark harbour-side green star rated Barangaroo development. Currently located at Darling Park Towers, Marsh & McLennan Companies will move to International Towers Sydney in late 2016.
It is expected that 1,000 Sydney employees working in Marsh & McLennan Companies’ wholly-owned subsidiaries, Marsh, Guy Carpenter, Mercer, and Oliver Wyman, will occupy floors 19-23 of Tower 1 – one of three buildings under construction at International Towers Sydney.
MMC Chairman for Australia, David Anderson, said, “The relocation is a part of Marsh & McLennan Companies’ continued investment in our Australian businesses and will create a leading edge workplace for employees of Marsh, Guy Carpenter, Mercer and Oliver Wyman.”
“Our people are our greatest asset and our new Sydney residence will empower colleagues and clients to work and interact in smarter ways. New technology will facilitate more collaborative, productive and flexible work practices and fuel innovation,” he said.
“In recent years our workforce has grown and the way we work has evolved. We are shifting from a traditional office environment to a more collaborative and creative work space that will improve productivity, create efficiencies and inspire our people to create the products and services of the future for our clients and customers.
“Our operating companies will benefit from the role International Towers Sydney will play in enhancing Sydney’s position as a major centre for global financial and professional services, and our people will experience Barangaroo’s state-of-the-art social, cultural and environmental features,” said Mr Anderson.
