A group of 10 of us founded ERG in 1984. All but one of us, who retired in 2007, are all still here, working together to serve our clients and to do work that we believe in. One of my goals in founding the company was to create an atmosphere of respect, a company where everyone at all levels of the organization would be treated with kindness and compassion. With each year, I'm more convinced that our commitment to this goal is what makes our success as a company possible. How does this work? We look for people with similar goals, skills, and dedication to client service. We look for people who embrace our cooperative philosophy. In this atmosphere, people can develop, grow, and diversify their skills. They can participate on project teams that pull together different specialties and strengths to meet specific client needs. One key result of this philosophy is that we have very low turnover of staff or clients.
