EnterpriseAlumni invites you to join this one hour webinar with panelists Carrie Melissa Jones, author, community builder, M.A. researcher, and community management consultant and Lisa Morris, the founder of XPLOR, an experience design and innovation firm dedicated to bettering the human experience of work and of workplaces

Building a business case to launch an Alumni Program or trying to create additional budget for your existing program?

Why do Alumni Communities for many organizations seem like a disposable nice to have vs a fundamental requirement based on recognizing that investing in relationships is good for business.

Retaining employees is a privilege not a right that an employer has to earn every day, this includes setting them up for future success wherever that might be.

For everyone building their business case, creating their financial view of how having an Alumni program will impact the bottom line, this hour is for you. Successful programs recognize you don’t need a business case, you need a vision statement and it has to start with the impact on your community.

What does it even mean to engage? How do you qualify engagement? How do you even qualify success? What we are talking about here is engaging people as humans not transactional objects.

If you think about this as a transaction you are done, if you are thinking about ROI you are done, it starts with a social drive, community drive and then there is a payoff. Where does human behavior and business ROI intersect. What is the equation?

Thinking about Alumni Communities needs to move from thinking about the money to thinking about the mindset. Every Alumni is a human first.

This webinar is a 45 minute panel discussion and a 15-minute Q&A.
