Janet Swaysland


Janet brings expertise and passion to her work as a workplace culture, employee engagement and change communication consultant. She has worked as a corporate leader and consultant for over 20 years with a strong track record in increasing understanding, aligning interests and influencing behavior among all stakeholder groups to make real impact on organizational performance. Clients rely on Janet to help them attract and keep the best talent, move through change with minimal disruption, navigate urgent issues, and serve customers better. She believes that creating a culture of feedback is at the heart of any successful employee engagement strategy: data-driven insights and an ongoing “voice of the employee” inform decision-making and help leaders see around corners and build trust.
Her broad experience makes her a valuable advisor with both deep industry and functional knowledge and fresh thinking that engages teams and fosters valuable new solutions. Her work has spanned HR, marketing, IT, finance and legal functions, and in sectors including biotech, retail, manufacturing, technology and more, with organization size from fewer than 100 employees to more than 20,000.

Janet is a graduate of Wake Forest University, with a B.A. in Education. She is finding rising demand for her expertise in developing employer brand/value proposition strategies, employee feedback programs, change communication, workshop facilitation, cross functional collaboration (HR, marketing, communications), flexible workplace strategies, and supporting leaders as engaging communicators.

Janet is based in the Boston area where she loves to host boating adventures with friends and family.

“The deeper analysis of the data gave us a better overall understanding of where the issues were. That allowed us to engage where we needed to make changes in a more focused way.”

“Energage is the one system that consistently gives me reports that are digestible, that are asking the right questions. Because some of these surveys, quite honestly, don’t ask the right questions.”

“Our wins are a direct reflection of our team and the great work they do every day. And frankly, it’s about how accountable they hold all of us for creating a great experience for their peers, for candidates, for alumni, and for our customers.”
