Dip Your Mind Into the New World of Stakeholder Management...

Enterprise Engagement Alliance The Enterprise Engagement Alliance offers free or low-cost ways for people to get started down the path to learning about the formal principles, economics, implementation, and reporting processes of stakeholder management, the implementation process for Stakeholder Capitalism. This learning program is even more important now that the European Union has established stakeholder management as a business norm in its new Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive requiring disclosures on all areas of stakeholder engagement of large companies (over 250 employees) doing business in Europe.

Perhaps you’ve heard about the concepts of human capital management, Stakeholder Capitalism, ESG and wish to learn more but aren’t ready yet to begin a formal learning progress. The Enterprise Engagement Alliance offers a variety of free to low-cost ways to get started on your path without joining the EEA’s individual or corporate learning program or considering certification.

The program is designed to fill a serious void in professional business education: the need for an interdisciplinary strategic and systematic approach to stakeholder management across the enterprise that enhances returns for investors by creating value for employees, customers, supply chain and distribution partners, communities and the environment. The education can be tailored for everyone from board members, asset managers and analysts and C-suite management to front-line managers in finance, sales, marketing, human resources, operations, logistics, administration, etc. seeking to find new areas of value creation in their organizations.
More akin to total quality management than it is to corporate social responsibility, stakeholder management will set you and/or your organization apart from others that still manage people as a sunk cost with little to no return on investment for their engagement efforts.
The EEA resources are specifically designed to help organizations and their management teams move toward a stakeholder approach to enhancing returns for investors by creating value for customers, employees, supply chain and distribution partners, and communities. It is no more complex or difficult than the transition to total quality management in manufacturing.

Here are all the ways we help.
