Why are corporations and nonprofits putting so much emphasis on employee resource groups and employee volunteerism? The answer is business value. In this session, you’ll hear directly from business and community leaders about their employee initiatives, market trends and the results of these efforts. You’ll learn about Employee Resource/Affinity Groups, their purpose in the large corporate structure, and how community engagement and volunteerism can help to drive business growth and retain top talent.
