Our Employee Resource Group (ERG) for women and allies is called [email protected] The group’s mission is to “empower and embolden other women by fostering community, connection and advocacy so that women can advance their leadership potential and enhance their sense of belonging at Guild.” The group seeks to achieve that mission through community engagement, professional development, and policy advocacy. Our [email protected] ERG collaborates closely with our DEI team and other ERGs, including those for our Black, Latinx, Asian-American and Pacific Islander, and LGBTQIA+ communities.
Guild is committed to creating an inclusive workplace that allows employees to feel comfortable and bring their full selves to work. Our current training provides important tools that can help employees advocate for themselves and their team members, while also helping us maintain a culture in which everyone feels confident in speaking up for one another and when they see something that doesn’t align with our values and commitments.
our various ERG’s offer internal mentorship programs.
partnerships with ERGs to highlight open roles for internal candidates to apply to. Current expansion with external DEI partners to ensure we're building the top of the funnel. Work toward posting jobs externally across more diverse outlets/job boards. Build out of data internally to understand gaps and areas for growth. Build out of sourcing team to support bringing in a diverse group of future Guilders. Ongoing partnership between Guild's DEI team and TA Ops team.
employee’s that have been at Guild for 4 years are eligible for a 5 week sabbatical.
since the start of the pandemic, we have experimented with different models of fully remote work and using our office as a convening space (when it’s been safe to do so). We know we aren’t going back to a world before Covid-19 but we will still have physical office locations for “heads up” intentional and cross-functional work, and Guild employees will be able to complete “heads down” work remotely. “Heads down” work entails mostly flexible and independent work that can be done in a variety of places and does not require in-person collaboration. “Heads up” work requires greater connection and innovation, and usually happens with other colleagues or in smaller groups. This combination of philosophies allows for more flexibility, maintains ideal parts of a hybrid workforce, and ultimately will follow public health recommendations as they evolve.
though we do not have formal policies in place we are committed to meeting our Guild employee’s where we can and coming up with solutions that meet both their needs and the needs of the business.
Guild offers 14 weeks of parental leave (for each birth event) to all employees welcoming a new child via birth, adoption, surrogacy or fostering. Employees are eligible for parental leave as well as supplemental pay benefits from their first day of full-time employment.
Guild’s short term disability plan pays 60% of weekly earnings up to maximum of $2,500 per week. Guild will then pay the additional 40% to bring the employee up to full pay.
Guild offers comprehensive health care coverage with low deductibles and co-pays which create an affordable option for our soon to be parents. We also offer a Healthcare FSA and Dependent Care FSA which can provide pre-tax dollars to help pay for health care and child care expenses.
Guild has a lactation room on every floor. Each room is stocked with breastmilk storage bags, pump cleaning wipes and sanitizer systems, microwave, dishwasher and sink. We also have a mirror so employees can feel comfortable prior to leaving the room.
we currently offer fertility benefits through our Cigna medical coverage.
Guild currently offers a Fund available to those that have lost access to their primary caregiver due to COVID- 19. We are also launching a partnership with a provider to offer back up child care days this November.
the Beehive is a new Early Childhood Education Center that fosters a love of learning, curiosity and a sense of community in the heart of downtown Denver. They have a focus on play-based education year-round for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old and offers subsidized childcare to our employees.
