Mission, Vision, and ESM Editorial Policies

ESM at is the online trade publication of the field of Enterprise Engagement, the implementation process for the “S” of Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) and Stakeholder Capitalism. What makes us unique is a strategic focus on engaging and aligning all stakeholders with a clear brand purpose, goals, methodologies, metrics, and continuous improvement process, much like Total Quality Managment in manufacturing adapted to people. 

Published by the Enterprise Engagement Alliance (EEA), ESM (Engagement Strategies Media) at is the web version of a print magazine first published in 2009 under the name of is the latest version of an online marketplace focusing on solutions in the market dating to the 1990s. The EEA also RRN at; marketplace, RRN e-newsletters, and library, the leading media platform focusing on Total Rewards.

Our purpose is to create a marketplace of information and solutions to help organizations enhance returns for investors and owners by creating value for customers, employees, supply chain and distribution partners, and communities, as well as for donors, volunteers, and constituents, etc. in the realm of government and not-for-profits. 

Our mission is to apply the principles of Stakeholder Management to help organizations of all sizes enhance performance and create better experiences for all stakeholders through a strategic and systematic approach that fosters alignment of all engagement tactics across the enterprise. We aim to counter attempts by the extreme right and left to claim that Stakeholder Capitalism is the equivalent of “Woke” Capitalism, "creeping communism," "fig-leaf" with the compelling fact that it is simply better business.
We help readers in all areas of business, not-for-profits, investment firms, unions, government etc. enhance the performance of their organizations and their own personal professional growth by providing useful information, advisory and training services, and supplier resources, and we help solution providers crystallize their value propositions and convey their benefits to professionals in an information-seeking, learning, planning, or buying mode.

Our editorial policies. We publish news, new products, and profiles, whether an organization does business with us or not, including useful resources from an organization others might consider competitive. Members of the EEA or our ESM Preferred Solution programs below are covered with the same objectivity as any other company. This means that while ESM writes about the organizations committed to supporting the use of effective practices in Enterprise Engagement and their efforts to share useful information, all organizations are treated the same in terms of having access to editorial coverage for news, case studies, or research. ESM writers may not use content to help settle personal disputes with companies mentioned, nor as a form of "pay back." ESM is strictly non-partisan and only writes about political issues that have an impact on Stakeholder Management and Stakeholder Capitalism.
