Make Your Employees Work For You (For Themselves)

Make Your Employees Work For You (For Themselves)
Employee Emeritus Employee Emeritus ‎07-06-2011 09:10 AM

jen.JPGIt’s July and we’re excited to introduce another expert in the Verizon Authors Series: Jennifer Prosek who wrote Army of Entrepreneurs: Create an Engaged and Empowered Workforce for Exceptional Business Growth.

 

Jen is the founder and CEO of CJP Communications, where she leads many of the firm’s key accounts. Under her leadership, the firm has become a leading international public relations and financial communications consultancy with offices in New York, Connecticut and London.

 

The secret to CJP's success has been Prosek's ability to develop, motivate and deploy her employees to be more entrepreneurial within their own positions. This strategy is the premise of her first book which is based on CJP’s unique business model and is now available from AMACOM, a division of the American Management Association.

CJP and Prosek have won numerous honors. CJP was named an Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing company, has been recognized as one of the "Top Places to Work in PR" by PR News, and was named "Small Agency of the Year" by The Holmes Report and one of the tri-state area’s 2011 “Great Entrepreneurial Places to Work” by New York Enterprise Report.

Prosek lectures frequently at business schools including Columbia, and entrepreneurial and business groups, such as the Yale Chief Executive Leadership Institute, Forté Foundation, The Royal Bank of Scotland Marketing Summit and British-American Business, Inc. 

She is a graduate of Miami University of Ohio and the Columbia Business School.

You can follow Jen on Twitter and Facebook.
