Marketing Executive, Each Person
Almost half of UK employees want to work for environmentally conscious companies. Implementing eco-conscious values and recognition within your organisation is paramount to the wellbeing of your people and our planet.
According to the Office for National Statistics, the unemployment rate in the UK has fallen to 4.1%. A drop of 1.1% from this time last year. Employers now have to look for more imaginative ways to attract and, perhaps more importantly, retain talent accordingly. With nearly half of the UK wanting to work for companies that care, becoming more sustainable and greener makes companies more appealing to potential employees.
Improving wellbeing and engagement
We all know an employee’s worries, stresses or tensions are reflected in their work. These apprehensions, of course, include the looming grey cloud of the climate crisis. The Mental Health Foundation says the effect it can have on wellbeing “must not be underestimated.” Therefore, by looking after the planet, you are helping to look after your employees.
Moreover, having sustainability at the heart of your company will undeniably help tackle the climate crisis. There is no plan B, only planet Earth.
Implementing digital, accessible and creative ways to say thank you, such as ecards, is a perfect way to lessen waste.
Eco-conscious rewards and recognition
Trees are essential to the fight against the climate crisis. Like Prezzo and Bupa, many companies have added them to their rewards and recognition schemes. Planting a tree as a way to thank your people for a job well done allows you to offset your carbon emissions and boost engagement simultaneously.
Did you know employee reward schemes often include unnecessary waste? Implementing digital, accessible and creative ways to say thank you, such as ecards, is a perfect way to lessen waste.
In summary, it may be easy to overlook the roles we all play in the fight against the climate crisis. However, it’s just as easy to start righting some wrongs. In doing so, your people will thank you, and so will our planet.
