Title:Facilitating Employee Engagement in Sustainability Initiatives
Author(s):Jones, Erin
Subject(s):behavior science
behavior change
Abstract:Erin Jones - Consultant with sr4 Partners LLC. Employee engagement in institutional sustainability programs holds multiple benefits to both the organization and the community. Increasing employee awareness and participation in sustainability efforts allows the individual to feel greater ownership; this often increases productivity, innovation, and efficiency. When more people become aware of such initiatives and have the opportunity to deepen their understanding of those initiatives a greater sense of ownership is developed allowing programs to be more successful, employee retention to increase, and overall reputation to improve. The concepts of project sponsorship, a network mindset and behavioral change were discussed as a means by which to increase awareness and participation in sustainability efforts. Jones' intention was to provide insight into the pathway to engagement and ownership of these programs.
