A unique culture

Mercuria’s management recognizes the critical importance of setting the right culture and tone for the organization. Our success in attracting top talent has been possible due to the reputation that we have built. We strive to operate as a responsible business that says what it does and does what it says, as well as maintaining the dynamic and entrepreneurial culture that we’ve had since we were founded.

Empowering our employees

We believe that finding the best path forward comes from ensuring that all employees feel empowered to express their views and to challenge assumptions, analysis and existing practices. We operate a very flat structure and all of Mercuria’s management team actively engage in communications with all employees across the company. 

We strive to maintain a supportive work environment where employees feel valued, heard, and appreciated, and can contribute to Mercuria’s growth and success with the full respect of their peers without experiencing harassment or discrimination.

For example, we have invested in cutting-edge technologies, such as blockchain and artificial intelligence, to optimize trading processes and enhance efficiency. Our commitment to innovation is also evident in our participation in the energy transition. Investing in new and evolving sectors, demonstrates our willingness to adapt, and we are contributing to shaping the future of the energy and commodity trading industry as a whole.
