Bea Boccalandro helps people mess with their jobs for good.
Specifically, Bea works with Aetna, Allstate, Caesars Entertainment, Disney, FedEx, HP, IBM, Levi’s, PwC, Toyota and many other brands to increase the social impact of jobs. “Job purposing” as this practice is called, has been shown to heighten employee engagement, performance and wellbeing while alleviating hunger, poverty, environmental degradation and other societal issues.
Bea is founder and president of VeraWorks, a global firm that helps businesses job purpose or otherwise support the community. She is also author of the Job Purposing blog, teaches corporate community involvement at Georgetown University and is a frequent keynote speaker.
When not delivering presentations or helping brands increase workplace purpose, Bea surfs (poorly), snowboards (a little better) or draws cartoons of innocent people (you’ve been warned).
