At Intuit, we celebrate diversity and value inclusion. Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are an important part of our diverse and inclusive workplace and offer an opportunity to learn from role models, mentors and peers. ERG members help create a culture of diversity and inclusion across the organization.
In 2020, the ERGs had an amazing year full of high-impact programming and incredible outcomes transitioning to 100% virtual programs. It grew membership by 38% in the year globally. In India the ERGs saw 133 members joining our thriving communities.
The Intuit India Steering and Leadership Team (IILT) are key to bubbling up collaboration concerns, accomplishments and learnings from across business units. All our VPs and Directors meet once a month and use the forum for collaboration across teams. This group plays a key role in ensuring every business unit has a voice at the table, receives consistent messaging in the true One Intuit spirit and gets the opportunity to contribute to site-wide outcomes.
The pandemic has been a difficult one for all of us and leaders have been in constant discussion to make sure we are doing all we can to support our people through it. The key themes that our leaders focused their energies on this year have been balance and well-being for their teams and themselves.
The Intuit India Engagement Council brings together our employee networks and community leaders to collaborate for the overall engagement agenda. In the last few years, the Council has been instrumental in planning key engagement offerings.
Widening employee participation through the Great Place To Work (GPTW) Ambassador Community, creating delightful experiences for employees and members of the family through offerings like the Little Intuit Day and #IntuitLifeLive – all of which has greatly contributed to us being recognised as among the best companies to work for consistently over the past decade.
Our Engagement Council and the WCGB team came together to organize a Mindful Yoga session for our employees. Conducted virtually, this effort demonstrates how our teams join hands to organize activities for the wellbeing of the employees and help them cultivate a healthy way of life. Apart from Mind Yoga the two groups partnered to organize multiple virtual engagements like Zumba, Meditative yoga among others.
The NGN community has been partnering with various sets of employees, teams and groups to launch virtual engagement activities
In collaboration with the GPTW Ambassadors community, the team launched the first ever virtual quiz event – Inquizitive, to bring a sense of fun and community while we worked from home.
In collaboration with our onboarding and talent acquisition teams, they organized Virtual Sessions for New Hires, to educate the new hires on the various initiatives and programs they can contribute to as part of NGN.
From being a GPTW ambassador, conducting floor activities to now being a part of the core team, it gives me immense pleasure to give back to Intuit. Very excited to be working with the community which has kept us engaged with so many innovative initiatives even during the pandemic.

Collaboration doesn’t just mean helping, it means coming together to make a mission successful. It doesn’t matter which team you belong to, we all are moving towards a mission which can happen only if we have the One Team mindset.

The GPTW Core is a family working towards a common goal. It feels empowering to work with such a diverse group of brilliant, driven, and enthusiastic people. Team GPTW makes me feel like I belong here.
