Global ERG Summit

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are playing an increasingly valuable role in organizations as they directly address the growing social needs of businesses which leads to higher employee satisfaction. By creating affinity groups around identity, interest, or other shared traits, companies actively encourage deeper involvement by the workforce, which has not only a positive impact on culture, but also strategy and performance. 

We can all take action today to include everyone in growing our people and organizations.

Participants learn from faculty, experts in the field, and peers. The formal and informal learning leads to on-going improvement in the ways ERGs impact their businesses.

Dynamic strategies call for new organizational forms that pose complex new design challenges at all levels and in all sub-systems of the organization.
