When Merit Medical® Founder and CEO Fred Lampropoulos established the Merit Garden at our Salt Lake City global headquarters in 2016, he envisioned a place that improves employee health, boosts morale, and ensures team members have access to fresh and nutritional food. Since then, it has also become a place where sustainability and philanthropy intersect.
Each year, the Merit Garden Program undertakes a number of initiatives designed to benefit employee and community well-being. This harvest season, we compiled garden accomplishments into one exciting video. Join us as we take a look back.
