The authors argue that embodiment of these roles should be supported through the delivery mechanism of the OEIs, rather than assume them as given traits in organizational environments.Practical implicationsProponents of OEIs should expand their focus from supporting engagement of building occupants to fostering engagement of BMs and senior executives.Originality/valueThis study adopts the perspective of the building management profession to expose a gap in the design of energy-related occupant engagement interventions.
