Our commitment to Corporate Citizenship and Sustainability is more than a corporate imperative. They’re the pillars upon which we’re building the Now of Work—using our focus on human agility to ignite opportunity and impact for people and the planet.


Taking Care of Our Planet

We believe that environmental sustainability is good for our planet and our bottom line. As a global professional services firm, our environmental footprint is relatively small and we remain committed to reducing it even more.

Our Goals

    Minimize our carbon emissions:

    • We reduce employee commuting through our use of virtual offices, hybrid approach to remote and in-office work, and maximizing technology for virtual meetings.

    Decrease our global real estate footprint:

    • We reduced our global real estate footprint by over 31,000 square feet during fiscal 2023 by creating designated virtual offices, utilizing shared work spaces and expanding our use of technology to allow more employees to work virtually.
    • Since June 2020, we have reduced our global real estate footprint by over 143,000 square feet.
    • We plan to reduce our physical footprint by an additional 88,000 square feet over the next few years.

    Reduce our reliance on print materials:

    • Beginning in 2022, we distribute our proxy statement and annual report digitally.
    • Nearly all client invoices are processed via electronic billing.
    • We deployed electronic pay stubs for all US employees.
    • We reduced print-based marketing materials in favor of digital assets.

Putting Diversity, Equity & Inclusion to Work

At RGP, diversity, equity and inclusion are critical underpinnings of our shared values. As a Human First company, we recognize diversity as a strength that is cultivated through our culture, our people, our business and our clients. We are working to protect and promote inclusion and equity in the workforce and in corporate leadership. We are proud of the gender balance of our workforce and the diversity of our executive team. We continue to focus on building and advancing diverse leaders at all levels of the company.

At RGP, our core values are L.I.F.E.A.T RGP (Loyalty, Integrity, Focus, Enthusiasm, Accountability and Talent). These guide our day-to-day interactions with each other and our clients to strengthen our inclusive culture and create a sense of belonging for everyone. We prioritize inclusivity to ensure that every employee can have the skills, access and resources needed to succeed in the Now of Work. Our ultimate goal is that all of our employees, regardless of their background, know and feel that they belong and are valued at RGP.
