EEA: Your Resource for the How of Stakeholder Capitalism

is about enhancing returns for investors by creating value for employees, customers, supply chain and distribution partners, communities, and the environment. The Enterprise Engagement Alliance
may be the only organization in the world with a complete how-to guide to implementation.
Did you know that Stakeholder Capitalism has its roots in the implementation of Total Quality Management by early business innovators starting with W. Edward Deming
in the 1950s? The EEA curriculum is based on decades of practical research and the same general principles embodied in the Annex SL
framework of the International Organization for Standardization
(ISO) calling for a CEO-led strategic and systematic approach to management that addresses the needs of all interested parties.
Founded in 2009 based on a decade of research linking employee and customer engagement to financial success, and well before ESG or Stakeholder Capitalism became topical, the Enterprise Engagement Alliance offers four practical ways to get started on the implementation process for the “S” of Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG), increasingly known as Stakeholder Capitalism.
The education program prepares professionals and organizations for the growing pressure for stakeholder management strategies and disclosures and the new European Union Corporate Responsibility Reporting directive
, which requires disclosures on practices and metrics with customers, distribution partners, employees, and communities for all EU companies with 250 or more employees, and many that do business with them in the US.
