What’s the typical budget for a resource group? Does it vary from group to group? How do you get an increased budget? How are resource-group leaders held accountable for how they spend their budgets?
Chezie was created with a belief: people should be in workplaces where they belong. We're working every day to turn this belief into reality. We help job-seekers by gathering Stories from employees at prospective companies. Using these Stories, candidates can find out what it's like to work at a company from people that identify similarly to them.
We help companies by giving them the solutions they need to empower their employee resource groups (ERGs). With our software, employers can track membership, events, and engagement to ultimately create more inclusive workplaces and retain diverse talent
