Employee Resource Groups
What is an "ERG"?
An employee resource group (ERG) is a body of employees with a shared diverse identity or interest who meet on a regular basis. Research has shown that organizations with ERGs experience increases in:
- diversity in new-hires
- employee retention
- talent discovery and development
ERGs enhance the quality of being different and unique; create and sustain an environment in which employees can achieve his or her potential; provide an intellectually rich and engaging forum where diverse views, perspectives, support and experiences are recognized, respected, and valued; and foster excellence in working, teaching, research, service, and community partnerships while contributing to our institutional initiatives, mission and vision.
