It’s the beginning of 2018, and many a New Year’s resolution has not yet been put aside yet. The desire to do something different occupies peoples’ minds and they are searching for the right thing to do this year. Often professional people feel the need to be challenged again, to experience something different at work, to get excited about the next working day… How can we achieve such thing, if we do not want to change jobs or even our career entirely?
Here is an idea: Become the green champion of your company. Differentiate yourself from other staff members by driving sustainability. Motivate and action changes that are not only good for the planet, but good for the company’s financial, too. Help manage risks in regard to operating costs and improve operating inefficiencies. Facilitate positive marketing and greater customer satisfaction. See opportunities to improve staff morale and productivity. Lower staff absenteeism and contribute to attracting good quality staff. Enhance your company’s brand through differentiation from competitors. Inspire your seniors with a sustainable view on business operations and opportunities. Does this all sound like a tall order? Maybe. Maybe it is just the kind of challenge many professionals have been looking for.
Sustainability in companies, offices and hospitality establishments has proven to carry many benefits and affect all areas of day to day business operations in a positive way. Take the example of eliminating chemical pollution in an office space. Studies have shown that staff is less allergic, less tired and most of all less sick and therefore less absent. Another example would be managing energy demand through implementing energy efficient retrofits, as it shows excellent returns on investment and mitigates risk associated to electricity tariffs. There are many more benefits. Learning about all other benefits and how to achieve them takes no longer than 2-3 days. Be inspired through one of our many courses:
