Successful ERGs can help make your organization a more attractive workplace, improve employee retention, and enhance your business strategy.
Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are one way to improve employee engagement and demonstrate your organization’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Successful ERGs can help make your organization a more attractive workplace, improve employee retention, and enhance your business strategy. During our live event on April 20, 2023, Diversity Works managing partner Holly Wittenberg shared best practices and a few examples of companies using ERGs to reach their business goals.
What is an ERG?
An ERG is a group of employees who share a common identity or experience. ERGs are often associated with gender, race, disability, sexual orientation, or other shared identities. However, ERGs can be centered on career development, socializing, health and wellness, community service, or work/life balance.
As discussed during the live event, ERGs are one way to help your organization become more inclusive and competitive. ERGs can connect employees with each other, with the organization, and with resources outside of work that will help them grow professionally.
ERGs are also a great way for your organization to attract and retain top talent by showing that it cares about its employees’ well-being inside and outside the office.
Diversity Works created an ERG Checklist to help you launch a new ERG or improve an existing one. You can download that resource here. Join us on May 18, 2023, at 1:00 PM ET for our next live event, when we’ll dive into equitable benefit design. You can register for that event here.
