The Engagement Agency

The Engagement Agency is creating a growing network of engagement solution-providers working together to bring the latest engagement resources to their clients and to help businesses, not-for-profit and government institutions achieve greater results through a systematic approach to engagement.
The Engagement Agency is the first advisory service designed to help employers profit from ISO 9001 and ISO 10018 Quality People Management standards and certification, and to support quality consultants, auditors and engagement solution-providers bring the benefits of these standards to their clients.
Because the ISO 9001 and ISO 10018 standards and the field of Enterprise Engagement are so new, many companies and solution-providers aren’t aware of all the solutions or opportunities in the field. The Engagement Agency is designed to help employers and solution-providers conduct a gap analysis, develop a formal strategy and connect them with the resources they need to accomplish their goals. Our clients include corporations, not-for-profits and government organizations seeking engagement solutions, as well as a growing number of engagement solution-providers to meet their specific needs.
Engagement Agency partners consist of a growing number of specialists in all areas of engagement, including full-service agencies and specialists in coaching, learning, survey and assessment, communications, innovation, collaboration, gamification, technology, analytics and other areas of engagement – all dedicated to bringing formal engagement solutions to their clients. 
We are trained in the framework and implementation process of engagement, supported when desired by a national team of experts selected specifically based on client needs and resources. All of the Engagement Agency’s solutions are designed solely to address the needs of end-user clients. We offer no “pre-packaged” solution other than an engagement framework already available at no cost from the Enterprise Engagement Alliance at, upon which our methodologies are based.
Engagement Agency partners receive advanced training in business development, consulting, and other support services specifically related to clients’ needs, including help with mergers and acquisitions. We work with solution providers in all aspects of engagement, from assessment and coaching to learning and communications (including digital, web, face-to-face, etc.), as well as innovation and collaboration, rewards and recognition, analytics, etc. 
The ultimate goal is to help organizations seeking to profit from engagement align all of the tactical tools needed to engage people to achieve measurable results.
