Behavior change and employee engagement are some of the first places to look for low- or no-cost approaches to achieve cost savings and reductions in environmental impact. In addition, increasing employee engagement brings other important co-benefits, such as boosting employee morale, increasing job retention, and enhancing your company’s brand. In many cases, investment in energy saving technologies or sustainability measures does not reach its full potential due to incomplete employee engagement. Similar to the rule of thumb that says implement energy efficiency projects before renewable energy to reduce overall energy demand, the behavior change rule of thumb suggests looking at how employees use resources and equipment before spending money on technology upgrades. EcoShift’s climate change consultants identify strategies to implement management changes and employee incentive programs in order to reduce your energy consumption.
