We promote an environment where people and projects succeed.

Our Values

Our corporate values guide our founders and our employees on a day-to-day basis, reflecting our core beliefs and leading the way to our success.

Merjent stands apart from other consulting firms in many ways, but a key difference is our firm’s commitment to a set of core values that guide us in how we run our company and how we work with each other and our clients. These values ensure that Merjent is a workplace where people and projects succeed.

Empowerment

Our entrepreneurial culture empowers each professional to pursue new business opportunities and explore new or innovative ways to serve our clients. We provide all employees with the opportunity to participate in corporate strategic planning, business processes, and business development, and we encourage professional growth in areas that improve client service. We support staff in their efforts to learn and grow so that they can pursue their own career paths.

Respect

Part of Merjent’s mission is to promote an environment where people and projects succeed. Respect is a core component to achieving this. We care about employee wellbeing, and management is proactive in promoting safety, providing workplace flexibility, and supporting programs and events that enable healthy lifestyle choices. We treat each other fairly and kindly, we encourage contributions and ideas from all staff, and we acknowledge hard work and strive to ensure a work-life balance.

Integrity

We expect personal integrity, honesty, and ethical behavior from all our employees. Period.

Safety

Safety is a big part of Merjent culture—we truly care about the welfare of our colleagues, sub-consultants, clients, communities, and the environment. Our internal safety program meets or exceeds the highest industry standards and we are very proud to have been selected by Environmental Health & Safety Today magazine as one of “America’s Safest Companies.”

Sustainability

We operate in ways that create employee value and lead to the development of long-term clients. Our founders established a business model that has carried us through market fluctuations, regulatory changes, and constantly evolving industries. They continue to seek sustainable outcomes and work to ensure stability and long-term viability for our company. Our strategies always consider ways to foster corporate culture, benefit our local communities, and reduce our corporate impact on the natural environment.

Quality

We pride ourselves on attention to detail and the quality of our professional services and deliverables. Our team members maintain certifications and training, stay current with best practices, and keep informed and up-to-date on changes in regulations. Merjent’s internal quality program ensures that the documents we prepare are clear, accurate, and consistent. All aspects of a project or service, from staffing to cost controls and schedule, are carefully considered, tracked, and managed.

We have also implemented many supportive and innovative measures to promote employee health, wellness, and wellbeing. From ergonomic “standing” and “walking” work stations to a healthy snacks program and telecommuting options, we have been recognized for our efforts through multiple workplace effectiveness and flexibility awards, including the Alfred P. Sloan Award, When Work Works Award, and the Star Tribune’s 150 Top Workplaces award.
