ERG Economy ToolBook 2nd Edition

book

The ERG Economy ToolBook, Second Edition features concise tools and applicable industry success practices that boost the effectiveness of ERGs. It incorporates models and systems traditionally reserved for executive leadership to help ERG leaders transform their organizations. This is made exclusively for members of the Elevate ecosystem.

This pioneering book on Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) defines this vital space as it positions ERGs as drivers of their own economic engines, which contribute to the larger economic marketplace. The ERG Economy is defined as the flow (concentration and distribution) and management of resources within a community—in this case, ERGs and related stakeholders. ERGs generate, facilitate, and propagate economic resources that advance individuals, organizations, and communities around them.

Analogous to our global economy, the ERG Economy reflects how ERGs interact with their environment to produce results for their organizations. Like any trusted guide, the book features clear and concise visual tools that ERGs can apply immediately.

Further, the necessary conditions for innovation are diversity of thought and engaged people, and ERGs inherently are diverse and empower innovation. The book challenges ERGs to think of themselves as more than volunteers, but as investors and creators of both their own economy and the broader economy. With the success of the first edition, the second edition of this book features several key augmentations:

  • Guest Executive & Expert Tools: These tools highlight practical insights at the executive level and feature subjectmatter expertise.
  • Triple the Tools: The second edition includes over triple the number of tools.
  • Enhanced Formatting: The tools are now more streamlined and enhanced visually
