When we launched Chezie in June 2020, our goal was to help diverse job-seekers find careers that they love. We wanted to do this by gathering Stories (reviews) from employees at major companies and making those Stories publicly available so people could find companies that valued them.
While we had some success - 1500 sign ups, 1500+ stories, and a handful of amazing employer partners - after over a year, it became clear that this would be a difficult model to execute on.
For this reason, we are shutting down our Story platform and focusing 100% of our efforts on our employee resource group management software. While this decision is a difficult one, we’re know that it creates a much clearer path towards our vision: to create the most inclusive workplaces on earth.
Employee resource groups (ERGs) are the backbone of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) programs. The issue is that these groups are often under-resourced and under-utilized. From conversations we’ve had with over 200 DEI and ERG leaders, we know that too much time is spent updating membership lists and building reports, and not enough time is spent on what matters – creating community for employees. Our ERG software is designed to help companies recruit and retain diverse talent by giving them an all-in-one solution for tracking membership, events, and engagement.
If your company has employee resource groups and you’re looking to make them stronger, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Onward and upward!
