HR’s role in sustainability is changing. The Human Resource function is uniquely positioned to assist in both developing and implementing a sustainability strategy, and 82% of HR executives believe sustainability can positively affect corporate profits (Source: MIT Sloan Management Review). But what exactly is influencing this?
As sustainability becomes an ever increasing priority and source of pressure for organizations, many leading companies are taking an “all-hands-on-deck” approach to strategy planning. The timing couldn’t be better for HR sustainability initiatives. Appropriate technology can easily be sourced to cultivate a workforce aligned around common goals, objectives and brand values. As a result, it is easier than ever to incorporate sustainability planning into established employee engagement programs.
Our latest white paper outlines the best practices employed by today’s forward-thinking HR leaders to unlock the potential of employee engagement via sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs.
