Intent Consulting Founder launches EquityPulse.io to help track the progress of 181 U.S. corporations whose CEOs signed the 2019 Business Roundtable “Statement of the Purpose of a Corporation”.

There’s a lot of talk about justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion transformation in companies today, but how many companies are walking the talk? – Former GM, Intent Consulting and EquityPulse.io Founder and Bestselling Author Omar L. Harris

Intent Consulting Founder, Former GM (GSK, Allergan), and Bestselling Author Omar L. Harris launches EquityPulse.io to help track the progress of 181 U.S. corporations whose CEOs signed the 2019 Business Roundtable “Statement of the Purpose of a Corporation”. EquityPulse.io evaluates their results in the four J.E.D.I. Leadership areas of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion using a 10-question anonymous employee survey. The platform transforms this data into a company profile that transparently shows their evolution and issues following through on commitments, actions, and impacts – from the employee perspective.

The Business Roundtable members include many Fortune 500 companies and corporations, who currently employ 20 million people, generate revenues of $9 trillion in annual revenues, and constitute a stock market capitalization of $18 trillion (SOURCE: Business Roundtable). Companies include JP Morgan Chase, Johnson and Johnson, Vanguard, Ford and more, whose CEOs all signed the Business Roundtable “Statement of the Purpose of a Corporation” to focus on Stakeholders vs Shareholders.

Harris believes: “There’s a lot of talk about justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion transformation in companies today, but how many companies are walking the talk?”

With the current “Great Resignation” trend where 9 out of 10 employees are thinking about leaving their job (Monster.com survey) as a result of toxic ego-driven leadership, it’s even more important for businesses to prioritize social justice, equity, diversity and inclusion.

As a Black Business Leader for global pharmaceutical companies and Intent Consulting Founder, Harris designed EquityPulse.io to give employees a voice on J.E.D.I. results. Harris’ new tracker raises the question: “What if there was a company profile, completed by workers that held companies accountable for their stated commitments to change?”

As a Mission, EquityPulse.io transforms anonymous employee survey data into insights on the impact of these initiatives so that all stakeholders benefit.”

In a recent Real Leaders article, Harris outlines the 5 Business Sins of Employee Inequity and solutions to reduce this toxic boss behavior:

1. Privileged Hiring – that creates the perception of scarcity and inequity

2. Sink or Swim Onboarding – indifference to new hire’s initial success

3. Talent Whitewashing – one size fits all approaches to talent development

4. Corrupted Compensation – with disenfranchised people still not being fairly compensated

5. Targeted Termination – employees are subject to involuntary termination while executives get golden parachutes

Harris’s goal with EquityPulse.io is to change the narrative, and create a positive work environment with J.E.D.I. Leaders who make all Stakeholders (employees, customers, community – and shareholders) versus only Shareholders a priority.

Harris believes that J.E.D.I. Leaders:

1. Hire for Behaviors, Not Pedigree – hire based on work-ethic, heart, optimism, and maturity (W.H.O.M.)

2. Go Overboard on Onboarding – spend quality time with their new hires to outline the expectations and provide support

3. Turn Talent into Strength – train to enhance employee strengths vs. weaknesses

4. Compensate Consistently – insist on an Internal Pay Equity Audit to eliminate pay inequities

5. Make Termination the Last Resort – view employees as the productivity and efficiency center of the company versus an expense that must be cut.

To put people first, companies must shift by making J.E.D.I. (justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion) initiatives a top priority. Harris believes the profits will come naturally and everyone will win by following the original intent of the 2019 Business Roundtable “Statement of the Purpose of a Corporation” in 2021 and beyond.
