In addition to working with Emtrain on its internal education program , SAFE is sponsoring an initiative with the Sacramento Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce to make Emtrain ’ s training and corporate culture indicators survey tools available to other regional businesses .
“ SAFE is working with Emtrain to ensure success with its companywide diversity , equity and inclusion strategy ,” says Colleen Nerius , EVP / chief human resources officer at SAFE . “ We ’ re committed to creating a culture that brings diverse voices and experiences to all levels in our organization .”
SAFE sought to bring the right training and expertise to its 700 employees and found Emtrain to be a perfect fit . This femaleowned , Sacramento-based company is committed to creating healthy corporate cultures through various consulting and training opportunities .
“ Emtrain integrates questions within the training that surveys employees about their experience with core indicators of DEI ,” says Nerius . “ The anonymous responses are displayed on a heat map that shows the health of our company culture in various areas . SAFE leaders will use that heat map to chart the continuing improvement of our culture .”
