Changing habits within the workplace or business processes can be a cost effective way to increase your bottom line. But do you have clear sustainability values and goals within your business? Whilst many people, employees included, will have strong beliefs and values about making the right choice for the environment, it isn’t always easy to act in accordance. As with other key values of your business, clearly communicating sustainability values will support employees to change their habits and meet your sustainability goals.
42% of the UK’s carbon emissions are as a result of individuals actions… so even small behaviour changes can make a big difference. Using strategies such as positive motivation or the challenges and rewards of ‘games’ can make behavioural changes more engaging. Why not challenge your teams to take on the Carbon Pledges or find ways of reducing business costs whilst improving sustainability?
Once change starts to happen, share it across the business. People respond well to social norms being shared – most hotels now have a card to share how many guests on average re-use their towels… because it works. Encourage your employees to share their positive habit changes – social proof (seeing other people share what they value) can be more motivating than policies or guidelines.
Behaviour change won’t always bring direct financial gains to the business, but demonstrating genuinely sustainable practice will certainly bring long term benefits.
