Employee Resource Groups bond employees, break down silos, and encourage engagement. Today’s companies now expand the scope of traditional ERGs such as diversity and inclusion to include employee communities like intramural sports, wine Thursdays, and travel groups.

Give employees a strong sense of community at work.

Encouraging employees to share the things that make them unique, along with the things they love – and together with their peers – is a robust culture strategy. It says, “we celebrate what makes you, you!”

And this sense of workplace community needs to be promoted, embraced, and participated in by the highest levels of leadership.

Traditional Employee Resource Groups (ERG) are inefficient, impossible to track, and burdensome for busy HR and benefits teams. And there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Each program is as unique as the ERG participants themselves.

Where is the love? Here.

A diverse and inclusive workplace simultaneously improves employee engagement and happiness – all while demonstrating to the world that your company is a place where people come to thrive.

People more than ever need and want a sense of belonging. In this increasingly global and multi-generational workforce, there are more unique perspectives and contributions to observe and celebrate than ever before.

Gain loyalty by delivering the platform for it. Be the culture magnet.

Espresa created the best ERG platform to meaningfully connect people in ways they love while supporting HR teams with everything you need to simplify the process. Most importantly, Espresa-powered ERGs were designed to promote workplace diversity and inclusion, regardless of location, including distributed employees.

Connect online. Connect via Espresa’s mobile app. Schedule ERG events and meetups. Now, HR teams have full transparency of official and unofficial ERGs. They can assign the budget for activities, and track attendance and excitement around individual groups that perhaps should move to an officially supported status.
