Businesses are becoming more and more aware that workers favour working for organisations with robust environmental practices. Studies have indicated that companies that use green practices can have workers who are 16 per cent more productive than the average.
But it can’t just be down to their green credentials, can it?
Well, there’s room for discussion here. There is no denying that organisations that demonstrate sustainability can draw in more talent; millennials, in particular, have a strong preference for working for companies that promote sustainability.
Of course, these businesses still need to adopt performance management, training, and a transparent communication plan with their staff. For some organisations, this will go hand-in-hand. They may utilise their ‘green’ strategies and methodology and the mechanisms that are built into these policies in other aspects of the business, therefore, as a consequence improving overall productivity. Additionally, they profit from being able to draw in greater talent, which enhances the organisation and draws in even better talent.
Any organisation that is genuinely implementing green practices must, by default, train and inform its staff of this, fostering a sense of trust and equipping them to work toward a single corporate objective. Just this alone can increase productivity and, in turn, motivation.
One thing is for certain: integrating sustainable practices into your company can have a positive impact on the environment as well as your output and, ultimately, your bottom line. Something to give some thought to!
