What's Next for Employee Groups?

January 2020 | Research Report

Participation in employee-led groups is growing globally as the groups evolve and expand from their traditional focus on demographic similarities to include a wider range of group types, cross-group pollination, and outreach to interested allies. At the same time, D&I leaders are finding new ways to align the purpose of these groups with the company's overall business strategy. Employee groups are helping to build communities across groups and inclusion beyond groups, and many organizations are discovering new ways to keep these groups from stagnating.
