The Equimetrics® Philosophy

Equimetrics strives to maximize society’s human potential. We believe there’s inherent untapped capabilities in all of us by improving our organizational DE&I culture and competencies.

For many organizations, the greatest challenge in improving DE&I rests not in interest or effort, but in execution. In the United States alone, companies spend approximately $8 billion annually on diversity training. Yet how are organizations measuring whether this investment is successful?

The reality is that many DE&I initiatives are still based on risk avoidance and legal compliance, as well as decades-old talent management approaches which may not be effective at finding diverse ways of innovating and solving complex problems. In other words, many DE&I efforts seem destined to stall and fail before they begin.

That’s how and where Equimetrics is different, and better, by delivering immediately actionable results that can positively change organizations’ DE&I culture and competencies. Large organizations can use Equimetrics to establish a DE&I cultural baseline and then help prioritize improvements, with follow-up measures of progress. Small- to mid-sized organizations which may lack the in-house expertise and resources to drive DE&I results on their own will particularly appreciate the ease and efficiency of the Equimetrics application.

 

Equimetrics History

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Equimetrics started through the efforts of its CEO, Art Johnson. Through Art’s time with companies such as IBM, US West (CenturyLink) and Medtronic, Art realized, in order to drive real organizational effectiveness, he needed to better align his organization to its Mission, Vision and Strategic Plan. He noticed how intentional and consistent words and actions to align his organizations drove effectiveness and performance to market leading levels.

Data-Driven Results

Art wanted to develop a tool that could measure how aligned and effective teams were so other organizations could benefit from greater effectiveness. Soon, clients were asking to not just assess their teams, but help them with the improvement process. Because it’s one thing to know where there are issues; it’s another thing altogether to commit to the work to align an organization, drive its effectiveness and tie those efforts to internal performance metrics that matter.
