LONDON—Edelman has appointed Nigel Miller as co-chair, Europe and CIS employee engagement and global director of Edelman talent engagement. Miller will co-chair the regional employee engagement practice alongside Nick Howard and will develop the practice outside the UK.

Miller will also be responsible for global talent engagement working alongside chief talent officer, Claudia Patton, supporting the talent team with best practices on employee engagement and change for the firm's ever growing employee base.

“In today’s attention economy it is increasingly difficult for businesses to engage their employees,” says Michael Stewart, Edelman’s CEO, Europe and CIS. “Employees are connecting and sharing information 24/7 with each other, customers, citizens and the media. Managing this is tougher than ever yet the employee advocacy opportunities for businesses are powerful.”

Miller joins Edelman from Coca Cola Enterprises, where as vice president human resources he has been a member of the leadership team and provided HR business partnership and labour relations stewardship for the company's European operations of 13,000 employees. He previously worked with Labatt Brewing Company, based in Toronto, and later moved to Belgium with Labatt's parent company, Anheuser Busch InBev.
