Message from David Meyers
ERG Founder and CEO
A group of 10 of us founded ERG in 1984. Some have retired, but most are still here, working together to serve our clients and do work we believe in. One of my goals in founding ERG was to create an atmosphere of respect, a company where everyone at all levels 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 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 collaborative philosophy. In this atmosphere, our employees 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.
The atmosphere of respect that we apply internally extends in equal measure to client relationships. We listen to and learn about our clients’ goals. We develop and implement practical, cost-effective plans to meet those goals. And we make ourselves available and responsive to changing needs and priorities.
I and other senior ERG staff contact our clients regularly to assess our performance. Over the years, their feedback has been nothing short of phenomenal. You might be interested in what they have to say about us:
“ERG is absolutely the best consulting firm to work with.”

“I am so impressed with your attention to detail, flexibility, imagination, and the professionalism your folks have demonstrated…The personalities and uniqueness that your employees bring to the table deserve recognition and praise.”

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
ERG values diversity and continually strives to provide a work environment where every employee feels welcomed and supported as their authentic self. Our corporate DEI policy, “to continuously advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in who we are and what we do at ERG,” is supported throughout the company and implemented by our DEI committee. Composed of over 65 people (nearly 15 percent of our employees) at all levels of the company, and working with the full support of ERG’s president, our DEI committee develops and implements recommendations in three areas:
- Recruiting, hiring, and retention strategies to increase the number of employees from historically underrepresented populations.
- Internal training, tools, and resources to promote awareness about the full range of diversity at ERG and best practices to help make our workplace as inclusive as possible.
- Pro bono support of community organizations working at the intersection of environmental and social justice.
Our DEI committee is open to all employees. We encourage job applicants to ask us more about the committee’s work and new employees to join the committee if they would like to do so. We thank our committee for helping us continually improve DEI at ERG.
