Effective ERG, as part of the organization in which it operates, needs goals, plans, structures, communication channels, and KPIs that are monitored. Above all, it needs relationships with key organizational stakeholders. The ability to build and maintain good relationships is one of the most important competence of an effective ERG leader. They need to build and manage relationships with:

  • ERG members
  • Senior management
  • Middle management
  • HR department
  • D&I team
  • Executive sponsor(s)
  • other ERGs in your organization

These relationships are of different kinds and can be formal or informal. For more information see ERG Playbook >>
