Merz Aesthetics today announced that the company has received two distinctions from Great Place to Work® and Healthiest Employers®. Great Places to Work®, the global authority on workplace culture, has certified the business as a great workplace in the United States. This is the first year Merz Aesthetics, which maintains its global headquarters in Raleigh, North Carolina, has received this designation.

Merz Aesthetics was also recognized as the #1 Healthiest Employer of the Triangle in the mid-size category by Healthiest Employers®. The Healthiest Employers program was created to honor people-first organizations that prioritize the well-being of their employee population. Award applicants were evaluated across six key categories: Culture and Leadership, Foundational Components, Strategic Planning, Communication and Marketing, Programming and Interventions, and Reporting and Analytics. This is the business’ third ranking by Healthiest Employers and first selection as the top spot. Last year, the business ranked nationally in the Top 100 across all companies in the U.S.

“These designations are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our employees who remain driven by our purpose to fuel confidence by helping people look better, feel better and live better,” said Bob Rhatigan, CEO, Merz Aesthetics. “This year in particular, they have shown our culture of connection and innovation thrives no matter the circumstances.”

Merz Aesthetics’ unique culture is supported through empowering employees to engage with confidence, encouraging collaboration across functions and assuming positive intent in all interactions. These values are part of the reason that 98 percent of surveyed employees shared they are proud to tell others they are a part of Merz Aesthetics. Furthermore, by building relationships through trust, respect, and integrity, 94 percent of employees said Merz Aesthetics is a great place to work, compared to the industry average of 59 percent of employees at a typical U.S.-based business.

“These are exciting milestones for our organization and a wonderful reflection of our employee experience,” said Patrick Urban, President, North America, Merz Aesthetics. “The combination speaks volumes about the efforts put forth to establish our business as one of the best places to work and our commitment to talent retention.”
