How Employee Resource Groups Drive Diversity, Inclusion, and Business Outcomes

    How ERGS Drive Diversity, Inclusion, and Business Outcomes

    Across all industries, organizations commonly leverage employee resource groups (ERGs) to drive diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Also known as affinity groups, business resource groups, or employee networks, what’s more important than what ERGs are called is how they function. While creating a sense of community and belonging is a key benefit of ERGs, too often organizations perceive the sole function of ERGs as a social gathering mechanism for employees with a shared identity or interest. For underleveraged ERGs, this can sometimes be the case. However, many organizations have tapped into the power of ERGs as an impactful vehicle to drive strategic priorities and business outcomes, in addition to diversity, inclusion, and employee engagement.
