Companies today expand the scope of traditional ERGs like DEI to include employee clubs such as intramural sports, wine Thursdays, and travel groups. The landscape has changed for the better. At Flex, we elevated ERGs to advance business objectives strategically. Most importantly, if you've done great, set the bar higher."

Sparking authentic connections

With Espresa communities, companies can drive inclusive workplace cultures by bringing groups together with varying affinity and diversity in heritage, background, experiences, and interests. In today’s global workforce, multi-generational employees seek more than a job. They want connective experiences.

Be the culture magnet

With communities, also called affinity groups or Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), companies do more than galvanize their cultures. They increase productivity, profitability, and overall organizational health. Including mobile-first connectivity, HR and people teams can enable access to communities and turn on social sharing for a greater depth of familiar communication. HR and community leaders can also schedule and promote events directly on the platform.

Connect online. Connect via Espresa’s mobile-first apps for Apple and Google Play devices. Now, HR teams have full transparency of official and unofficial communities. Assign a budget for activities and track attendance and excitement around individual groups that should move to an officially supported status.

Communities that deliver culture momentum

Espresa communities can also offer event attendance and challenges incentives redeemed in our integrated and zero markup marketplace or rolled into a Lifestyle Spending Account (LSA) wallet with our unique LSA Plus™.

Empower and encourage people to be their authentic selves

With a people-first model, future-thinking companies can see ‘individuals’ immediate and long-lasting impact on an organization.
