Employee Resource Group Survey Results

ACCP and Salesforce.org teamed up in the Summer of 2021 to jointly survey corporate citizenship, human resources and diversity, equity, and inclusion professionals, to gather insights into how corporations managed ERGs and how this movement aligned with overall corporate citizenship goals.

Highlights

Employee Resource Groups are grassroots initiatives and are primarily organized by employees for employees.

The primary objectives of ERGs are to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion, and employee engagement.

Most found ERGs effective in meeting objectives, but there is room for improvement.
