How Do Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) Help You Build A Diverse Workforce? With Suzan Morno-Wade from Xerox

Listen to this interview with Suzan Morno-Wade, EVP and CHRO at Xerox, and Sultan Saidov, Co-Founder and President at Beamery. Suzan works in partnership with senior leadership to drive a human capital strategy that facilitates the company’s transformation, future growth and success. Specifically, she is focused on instilling best practices around organizational capability, diversity and inclusion, talent management, learning, total rewards, and the work environment.

Suzan discusses how she measures success in acquiring talent, creating a safe space for employees, and the critical role ERGs are playing at Xerox to promote diversity and inclusion.

“I will say, one of the things that is a real differentiator for us is our approach to how we engage people before they join. And that is, we offer access to various diversity talent to meet and speak to, to learn about the company and the culture, before someone comes in the door. The culture piece, the culture fit, the culture complement is so important. And so we offer candidates the ability to speak with like peers before they join, so they can get a sense of the culture.” – Suzan Morno-Wade
