Ongoing Anonymous Feedback
The ability to receive ongoing qualitative data directly from your team will enable you to take action, incorporate suggestions into your processes, and proactively identify potential issues.
As a neutral third party, we will aggregate and summarize the information to ensure it remains anonymous. Your team will be assured that their feedback will be processed without bias, while you will be assured that you are getting honest, uninhibited comments from your people. Incident reporting will be sent immediately to the appropriate parties within the company upon submission.
Culture & Engagement Survey
Feedback from your team is an invaluable tool and gift that enables you to see the health of your culture.
Culture is the set of behaviors, beliefs, customs, and actions collectively performed by a group. They may be communicated through written policies or observed in group behavior. These behaviors can enhance and enable a group to work collaboratively, or they can insert friction that hinders achieving business objectives.
By understanding how engaged your team feels and their opinions of the work environment, you will have the clarity to drive deliberate change. The results will provide you insight into cultivating an inclusive environment, strong employee engagement, and positive interaction amongst each other and with your customers.

Inclusive Employee Resource Groups (I-ERG)
Strategy, Creation, and Implementation
It is imperative that companies bring a business approach to inclusion and an inclusive approach to business. In order for tangible benefits to materialize, the successful organization is called to utilize its diversity in ways that connect diverse groups with the business objectives of an organization.
A Business or Employee Resource Group, or BRG/ERG – is a voluntary, employee-led group that fosters a diverse, inclusive workplace while still maintaining alignment with an organization’s goals, mission, and objectives.
These groups provide a safe environment for employees to learn how they can make a difference in their company culture, foster support amongst their colleagues, and learn ways to advocate for equity within the organization.
With I-ERG, we will:
- Educate and inform decision-makers on the importance and objectives of a Business Resource Group (BRG/ERG)
- Provide guidance on group creation and best practices
- Act as a subject matter expert and liaison with the BRG/ERG leaders and business sponsors
- Provide Enrichment activities, such as cultural competence and other DEI learning opportunities driven by the BRG/ERG and benefit the entire organization
As a trade group, chamber of commerce, or industry association you understand that DE&I will give your members a competitive advantage. We will partner with you to give your community a step-by-step guide to achieving greater levels of maturity.
DEI Maturity Assessment
We use the International Organization for Standardization for Diversity and Inclusion (ISO 30415) to assess your company based on different dimensions including D&I Framework, Inclusive Culture, and various stages of the Human Resource Management Life Cycle. In addition, we paired these standards with Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) to help prioritize your DEI strategic plan and implementation.
Based on your score, we’ll walk you through solutions and actions to take at each level: Foundational, Advanced, Champion, and Advocate.
Inclusive Change Management
Change is a fact of life. In a business setting, it can be caused by growth, new ventures, and management turnover or policy changes. Most people are unsettled by change; however, the better change is managed, the easier it is to quickly realize its benefits and mitigate the risks associated with it.
We understand the need to create sustainable Change Initiatives to rally the whole organization to support the objectives. We will help you set the course to successfully develop a resilient and innovative organization through a well-planned approach and flawless execution.
