The Enterprise Engagement Alliance appoints Allan Schweyer of the Human Capital Institute to set its operating agenda as new Chairman.
The recently formed Enterprise Engagement Alliance (EEA) has named Allan Schweyer its Chairman. The EEA, founded in 2008 to support research, education, and outreach related to the emerging field of Enterprise Engagement, focuses on improving financial results through a strategic emphasis on customer, distribution partner, and employee engagement. Schweyer was most recently Executive Director and Vice President of Research of the Human Capital Institute (HCI) and is a principal in the Washington, DC-based Center for Human Capital Innovation.
“The EEA is not an association or institution—it is an alliance of organizations whose common goals include developing the field of Enterprise Engagement,” Schweyer says of the EEA. “Enterprise engagement involves numerous issues, it’s impossible for any one organization to be a primary resource for everything. It is our intent to work with organizations representing all of the disciplines of Enterprise Engagement to help make corporate America aware of the critical role played by engagement and the tools necessary to profit from it.”
“We’re excited to have Allan on board,” said Don Peppers, a founding member of the Executive Council. “He brings with him a deep appreciation for the role of human capital, and tremendous experience building successful organizations.”
The organization’s portal, EnterpriseEngagement.org, will go live later this month. In the meantime, for more information, go to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enterprise_Engagement, or follow the EEA on Linkedin at www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=1926267 or on Twitter at @EEA_Org.
