Several years ago, this company nearly lost several of its young, Latino managers. A cultural communications gap had left them feeling so uncomfortable that they considered leaving the company for better prospectsthat is, until Accenture’s Latino employee-resource group took the initiative and met with corporate leaders to address the issue.

In Employee-Resource Groups & Retention, DiversityInc reveals the details behind this retention best practice and provides five key lessons to understanding and solving cultural-competence through employee-resource groups. These best practices are must-learns for employee-resource groups to successfully improve retention among all employees, especially people from traditionally underrepresented groups who leave at faster rates than white men.
