Creating an Employee Resource Group (ERG) can be confusing, especially if you’re new to it. It may seem easy to start one, but there’s a lot to consider before you ever have your first meeting. SGO Facilitator Kia Rivera will talk about the importance of ERGs, best practices to set your ERG up for success, and suggestions for ways to keep it thriving after that first meeting.
- Build a business case for ERGs within your organization
- Discuss how to start an ERG
- Use frameworks to develop a plan to start and successfully run an ERG
- Describe how to measure the success of your ERGs
