Primary Products and Services
The Enterprise Engagement Advisors Network provides a directory of solution providers, free education, information, and other resources to make sure that organizations achieve a sustainable return-on-investment from all engagement strategies and benefit from effective, measurable practices.
The Enterprise Engagement Alliance was launched in 2008 by a small group of business people and academics who believed the research finding that organizations could achieve more sustainable results and better experiences for all stakeholders by applying a strategic and systematic approach to engaging all stakeholders.
Within its first year, the EEA held a conference bringing in experts from around the world in all areas of engagement to test out a new framework and implementation process for a 360-degree approach to organizational engagement. Two years later, the first formal course was born with the publication of Enterprise Engagement: The Roadmap, now in its fifth edition. This year, it published an abbreviated version for the C-suite: Enterprise Engagement for CEOs: The Little Blue Book for People-Centric Capitalists.
We care so much about promoting this field that we never trademarked the term “enterprise engagement” and give away all of the information organizations need to profit from the framework.
We are evangelical in enthusiasm, humanism, and spirit but focused on the need to build a solid business case for these principles from the standpoint of return on investment and enhanced experiences for all stakeholders.
EEA is a nonpartisan organization and will not endorse political candidates–even if when they share our views about the need for organizations address the needs of all stakeholders–because we believe these principles cut across partisan lines. In fact, the idea of partisan politics is contrary to the facts-based, sensible approach to decision-making that is baked into the culture of ISO standards, which are created by groups of people spanning all religions, cultures, and political systems.
The EEA community attracts people who believe as we do that capitalism can benefit from a more strategic and systematic approach to valuing and managing human capital, meaning customers, employees, distribution partners, suppliers, communities, volunteers, donors, etc. Anyone in any type of organization can benefit from these principles, from the largest public company, trade association, university system, or religion, to the smallest retailer, wholesaler, or volunteer organization.
Organizations that successfully engage all their stakeholders have more sustainable success because their customers are more loyal and often become brand ambassadors; employees want to stay, give their extra effort, and encourage others to join the organization; vendors want to go the extra mile to help because they value the business, communities welcome these organizations because they are good neighbors, and all stakeholders of a mind to offer new ideas and suggestions.
Until recently, everyone in the EEA community was cutting-edge, as this holistic stakeholder approach to branding and organizational management hadn’t caught on. Now that leading organizations such as ISO and the Business Roundtable have also embraced these principles, the buyer persona is no longer “bleeding” edge, but rather “leading” edge.
The EEA welcomes all professionals in any type of organization without regard to type of organization, nationality, years in business, resources, etc. The only exceptions are of course for any type of controversial or hate organization focused on doing damage to any particular group, no matter how well justified the cause might be. In the spirit of the ISO, consensus-based process, which can require tremendous patience, we believe that effective solutions to our world’s challenges will only come when people are ready to sit down and focus on finding a consensus rather than winning one for their side.

Engaged people are at the heart of every great organization and brand.
As highlighted in the new Business Roundtable charter and in ISO human capital standards, your organization will achieve the best results from its incentive, recognition, loyalty, promotional or business gift program if these tactics are part of properly designed programs or, better part, part of a strategic and systematic approach to engaging all key stakeholders. Brands and experiences will have the greatest impact if used as part of a formal and measurable process.
