Rich Products seeks to create intimate communities that foster a sense of connection and belonging, including the ability for associates to network, learn and collaborate.
Two decades ago, a small network of associates within Rich’s USA business launched Associate Resource Groups (ARGs). The mission was to embrace and celebrate differences. Today, there are 13 ARGs in total, eight in the USA, four in Brazil and one in Mexico. The groups are open to all who wish to participate, regardless of background or identity. These associate-led cohorts represent different populations, interests and experiences within our global workforce, creating opportunities for allyship, collaboration and development. ARGs also foster thought leadership and partnership opportunities as part of Rich’s overall DEI strategy.
ARGs have proved to be an incredible resource for associates, and helped corporate leaders hear directly from the Rich’s “family” through a vital two-way dialogue. The groups have been instrumental in advancing our culture and deepening engagement so associates feel supported and celebrated. Example programming, career development, learning sessions and social events facilitated by Rich’s ARGs include:
