Here are some key takeaways from this episode:
Organisations are making mistakes on their websites that undermine their inclusive efforts
“The paper makes a strong argument about how the representation of employee resource groups on websites is ill conceived and that organisations that may think that they are being inclusive are potentially damaging their relationships with their own employees”
The important relationship between employee resource groups and employee engagement
