Barilla Group: Engaging Employees through Employee Resource Groups

June 2020 | Case Studies

During the COVID-19 crisis and recovery, Barilla's D&I team leaders are working with their ERG leaders and more than 1,000 members around the world to organize feedback sessions, understand how different groups are affected by the pandemic, and develop solutions to support them. Key issues that emerged during the initial discussions include working mothers navigating the challenges of school closures and employees dealing with xenophobia and racism.
