The Science & ROI of Why ERGs are Necessary Now

Thursday, May 25, 2023, 1:00 pm CT

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs and the many other names they go by) are not a new workplace construct but are far from the informal social clubs they used to be. Today’s employee groups have governance, accountability, and funding. They notably help recruit and retain critical talent, develop a leadership pipeline and improve product innovation, market identification and customer support.

However, many executives are still skeptical about investing the organization’s human and financial resources to support the growth of employee groups. This session will explain:

  • What employee groups are
  • How they operate
  • Why so many organizations now consider them a critical competitive advantage
