Do employee resource groups increase business performance?
Since its inception in the 1960s as a response to racial tensions in the U.S., employee resource groups functioned primarily to support underrepresented minorities in business by providing a safe networking space to share experiences and challenges and overcome barriers to success.
Yet, this focus is changing as DEI efforts shift from traditional training and internal support to broader talent management goals, with business performance and societal contribution at the forefront of considerations. With DEI integrated across multiple business functions and increases in diversity positively impacting business performance, ERGs have the opportunity to be repositioned as a tool for business success.
