Leading Employee Practices for Sustainability Series


New practices, policies and tools for employee engagement are all playing a role in meeting the organization’s strategic sustainability objectives. These efforts include employee performance management, sustainability training, benefits programs, and broad employee engagement in resource efficiency. In addition, these are helping to create a culture of awareness and innovation, and better to attract, retain, and tap into the ideas of top talent. Organizations find themselves at very different points, in terms of identifying and incorporating new practices for sustainability.

This series presents a variety of employee engagement approaches and examples from leading organizations. The series offers useful information for those looking to expand employee roles in institutionalizing sustainability in day-to-day business practices, as well as those who are just beginning in this process.

  • How have leading organizations structured and aligned performance incentives to incorporate sustainability? How effective are performance incentives in engaging employees in sustainability?
  • How can employees support organizational sustainability? How can employee "green team” members be "agents of change” for sustainability?
  • What data is available to support the claim that sustainability contributes positively to employee recruitment and retention?  That 'engaged' employees have higher morale and productivity? 
  • What information solutions are available to help engage employees in sustainability and support behavior change? How have leading organizations implemented these solutions? What are the benefits and challenges and what have they achieved?
  • What types of green benefits are currently available? How have they been implemented by leading organizations? What have been the successes and challenges?
