Guilty As Charged: Enterprise Engagement Is About the Bottom Line

By Bruce Bolger on August 3, 2015

The attack we have been waiting for on the concept of engagement has finally come, after almost seven years.

Beware of Engagement Buzzwords

By Bruce Bolger on July 29, 2015

When the Enterprise Engagement Alliance was founded in 2008, only a few human resources or marketing solution providers were using the term “engagement.” In fact, some company principals in the traditional incentive and recognition field openly questioned our use of the word.

By Bruce Bolger on July 7, 2015

While the Enterprise Engagement Alliance and its sponsors have toiled away mostly under the radar in the U.S. to promote the field of Enterprise Engagement, in Great Britain it’s another story. Backed by the commitment of David Cameron, the country’s recently re-elected Prime Minister, the topic of employee engagement, it’s safe to say, is a […]

Achievers’ Valuation Promising for Rewards and Recognition Firms

By Bruce Bolger on July 2, 2015

The report that Blackhawk Network paid $110 million cash for Achievers was good news for the private equity companies moving into the rewards & recognition industry (and the broader engagement space), as well as for the owners of such companies, since that valuation appears to be well beyond the standard 5-times EBITDA of most businesses, […]
