The Why? Since joining Pyramid Consulting in January 2022, Solomon has prioritized advancing the company’s commitment to creating an intentionally inclusive community and launched Belong:IN, the staffing industry’s first Employee Resource Group program for consultants and corporate employees. Her ability to collaborate across multiple business units, build business relationships and lead with influence resulted in a complete launch of seven employee resource groups to celebrate and elevate the diversity of the company’s 7,200+ employees and consultants.

She Says… “Support for an employee resource group starts with executive leadership.”

What makes for a successful Employee Resource Group? Support for an Employee Resource Group starts with executive leadership. Having engaged executive sponsors that demonstrate a commitment to DEI are the foundation to building ERG engagement and fostering inclusive and psychologically safe spaces for its members. The business reason why companies with diversity focused initiatives outperform other companies 36% in profitability is because employees feel safe, valued, and included when they come to work. Therefore, they can bring their full selves to work and apply their best to their job. Employee resource groups support organizations efforts to improve retention and recruiting, increase productivity, and contribute to equitable product development. Successful Employee Resource Groups have programs that positively impact the careers of it’s members, raise awareness of social and cultural issues, contribute to business impact, and benefit the community.
