How can employee resource groups (ERGs) lead to higher employee engagement and satisfaction?
As financial cooperatives with a mission of “people helping people,” we believe our employees’ different cultures, lifestyles, and perspectives collectively strengthen our entire organization. ERGs offer employees opportunities to build a network of support, act on strategic priorities, and celebrate diversity. ERGs can have a leading role in designing and implementing all of our DEI initiatives.
ERGs can fulfill organizational and individual goals for outcomes including:
- Creating safe spaces
- Enhancing community impact
- Providing a voice to leadership as a business resource
- Fostering a sense of belonging and connections with the organization
- Generating opportunities for personal growth and professional development
