Englebardt finds joy in creating and sustaining a rich and varied culture where all employees know that when they bring their authentic selves to work, their individuality will be celebrated. Under Englebardt’s direction, the team manages multimedia communications across channels including company events, intranet, email, desktop, screensavers, and Microsoft Teams. In her time at Monster, Englebardt has overseen the implementation of a new company intranet, Happeo, and email service provider, Contact Monkey.
