Join the Enterprise Engagement Alliance to Support and Master the Principles of the “S” of Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG), Increasingly Known as Stakeholder Capitalism.

Why join the Enterprise Engagement Alliance? To help yourself, your organization or your clients profit from a new, more efficient approach to people management that organizations such as the Business Roundtable, the US Securities & Exchange Commission and the World Economic Forum state is now critical to the success of any size organization.

If you or your company are committed to the principles of success through stakeholder engagement and wish to master the concepts, share ideas with a community of like-minded people, and demonstrate your passion for this emerging business strategy, the Enterprise Engagement Alliance membership probably makes sense for you.

The Enterprise Engagement Alliance is the only organization specifically focused on educating management and college students on the practical application of the “S” or Social of Environmental, Social, and Governance management and that integrates Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion into the fundamental implementation process. Members learn how to design and implement formal human capital strategies across the enterprise and benefit by having the opportunity to share their expertise with others.

Who can benefit. Anyone on boards of directors or holding roles in senior or front-line management (including general management, sales, marketing, human resources, or Diversity, Equity Inclusion), as well as at engagement solution providers, academics, and students who believe that it’s time for a strategic and systematic approach to achieving goals by fostering the proactive involvement of all stakeholders–increasingly known as Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) or Stakeholder Capitalism. This movement is completely non-partisan and has no affiliation with any political parties.

An emerging new field and profession. The EEA is for boards, executives, professionals, academics, and students in all areas of management and all organizations and solution providers seeking to benefit from a transformational time in business: the need to implement a strategic, systematic, and measurable approach to engaging the broadest possible audience of people across the enterprise to support ESG and Stakeholder Capitalism principles. The EEA is the world’s only education and outreach organization specifically focused on the implementation of a practical, people-focused approach to business increasingly known as Stakeholder Capitalism that makes it profitable to address racial and social inequities. Founded in 2008, the EEA has developed the only information platform, solution provider marketplace, learning platform and certification program to support the practical implementation of this emerging new field.

This field is increasingly important to management in finance and accounting, as more companies will be compelled to disclose their human capital management and reporting processes, according to the Journal of Accountancy.

In fact, the Securities and Exchange Commission already requires public companies to report on human capital to the extent it is material to their businesses, and the new SEC Chair Gary Gensler has begun the process to update the disclosure requirements to include specific metrics on workforce engagement and turnover; pay and benefits; professional development; wellness and safety; diversity of the workforce, management, and boards.

Become informed and part of the community. By joining the Enterprise Engagement Alliance as an a student or academic (free), individual practitioner ($350 per year), or organizational member ($995 per year), you can access an array of information, learning and other opportunities; platforms to market yourself or your organization as an expert and/or supporter of this essential new approach to people management and measurement, and to obtain the learning material necessary to master the practical application of the field. Certification programs are available to address the return-on-investment of human capital and DEI. Members can learn how to create formal human capital reports as well as evaluate those of other organizations.

Enrolled students and active professors interested in ESG and Stakeholder Capitalism can enroll below under the free EEXAdvisor category and by clicking on the Academic category: they receive free access to member-only education and certification preparation material, as well as discounts on books, learning, and certification opportunities, as well as potential access to internship or jobs. Students who join can get involved with creating Stakeholder Capitalism Societies on their campuses to share educational opportunities and to promote Stakeholder Capitalism principles in their communities.

Training on human capital management, metrics, and reporting and ROI-based engagement strategies and technologies that bake DEI into all processes. The EEA trains sales, marketing, human resources, DEI, operations and general management on a strategic and systematic approach to optimizing performance through the broadest possible audience of people by more efficiently aligning the multiple engagement tactics siloed in most organizations. The recently updated education program includes an overview of the new Securities & Exchange Commission human capital reporting rules; the World Economic Forum Stakeholder Capitalism metrics, the new ISO 30414 human capital reporting standards, and others.

The opportunity to launch an Engagement Agency advisory service. The EEA’s Engagement Agency service helps solution providers adapt, create, market and support engagement agency advisory services to help their clients profit from the new human capital disclosure requirements and standards by creating an ROI-based, proactive strategy to people management and reporting.

What’s included. Paid membership includes a free copy of the Enterprise Engagement Alliance’s two books, Enterprise Engagement for CEOs, an abbreviated overview of the definition, benefits, and implementation framework, and Enterprise Engagement: The Roadmap, the field’s only textbook; free access to the five-part training program and a complimentary consultation session to ensure you or your organization profit from your membership.
