IRVING, TEXAS—Affirmity, a leading provider of diversity analytics, benchmark, and reporting tools and services, has partnered with Teleskope to help organizations manage, scale and measure employee resource groups (ERGs).
ERGs help foster employee engagement, retention and development by joining together employees who have shared experiences, interests or identify with underrepresented groups, such as people of color, veterans, LGBTQ+ or people with disabilities.
“ERGs offer tremendous value to both employees and organizations by empowering and equipping talent with the resources needed to grow and develop,” said Bruce Kile, co-managing director of Affirmity. “However, HR teams are often faced with the challenge of how to manage and measure the business impact of these groups. Affirmity’s ERG Management Platform addresses this by providing the tools to track how ERGs contribute to D&I progress, employee retention, employer brand and overall return on investment.”
Affirmity’s ERG Management Platform, powered by Teleskope, unifies leaders and employees in a central online community that offers the following features:
- Event planning and management
- Real-time analytics, custom dashboards, and on-demand reports
- Budget management and tracking
- HR management system integration
Employees are also able to access personalized resources, communicate with other ERG members, and view upcoming events within the platform.
“An ERG management platform reduces gaps in D&I data by measuring ERG activity and outcomes, while also increasing communication and visibility between employees and ERGs,” said Maneet Singh, vice president of Product at Teleskope. “The platform is able to adapt to the unique needs of any organization and use intelligent analytics to exceed diversity targets.”
Affirmity’s ERG Management Platform can help build a diverse workforce and inclusive culture that ultimately boosts innovation and productivity internally by:
- Developing leaders through mentoring programs
- Cultivating and preserving existing diverse talent
- Increasing employee referrals and recruitment rates
- Improving the employee onboarding process
The platform brings greater capabilities to Affirmity’s leadership in the workforce compliance and diversity marketplace. Affirmity was recently recognized as a leading D&I analysis and monitoring vendor by a Mercer and RedThread Research report for equipping organizations with expert analysis, consulting, training and software solutions to quantify D&I progress.
