Business resource groups (BRGs) were introduced at Newmont in 2014. A Business Resource Group (also known as an Affinity Group or Employee Resource Group) is a company-sanctioned organization of employees with a common background, set of interests and/or goals. Each BRG welcomes all employees. Since 2014, 17 BRGs have been established in our operating regions and at the corporate office. Newmont recognizes BRGs as critical partners for ensuring that everyone’s voice is heard and diversity of thought is celebrated and leveraged with participation open to all employees.
There are at least two BRGs in each of our operating regions, with a global presence of our Women and Allies (W&A) BRG. The Women and Allies groups are focused on enhancing the representation and contributions of women through professional development and building a more inclusive workplace culture. The W&A BRGs support internal training, employee engagement and community programs that champion women.
Employees shared their experience of the W&A BRGs in a year-end survey and submitted feedback that will be used to continuously improve BRG programming. One member said, “The W&A BRG has helped me take charge of my career and […] helped me develop leadership skills and connect with people throughout the organization”.
