Civilian and Military Personnel at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard enjoy a host of resources designed to support those who support the mission.

Employee Resource Groups
ERG Logo

     Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are employee led, shipyard sponsored groups that focus on removing barriers for current and future shipyard employees. 

     ERGs use methods such as outreach events, training, employee development opportunities, and management involvement to accomplish this task. ERGs are completely voluntary and open to all shipyard employees, active duty military, and tenant commands. 

     ERGs have proven to help with employee engagement, developing future leaders, and creating a more diverse, inclusive workplace that aligns with mission goals.

Learn more about specific ERGs here.
