Are your employees engaged in thinking and acting in a manner that reflects your commitment to sustainability? Green Impact is developing a Web-basedd engagement tool for the County of Ventura.
Green Impact recently developed a new web-based tool for the County of Ventura to harnesses the power of grassroots green teams throughout the organization.
The engagement tool, which can be customized for other organizations, is designed to spark friendly competition by allowing Departments to see how their engagement level ranks compared to their peers. Unlike some of the other cloud-based tools available, our tool is integrated directly into the County’s server.
A key challenge the tool was designed to tackle is how do you engage thousands of employees spread out over multiple locations? It allows teams to easily organize, create customized monthly or quarterly campaigns, develop customized posters with the program branding and track results. Below is a sample of what one of the customized posters looks like; they can easily be customized and placed in break rooms and other strategic locations, ideal for businesses with employees who are not all behind computers.
The poster lists the names of all employees who have pledged, helping to support a culture shift. It has been proven that when we make a public commitment, we are more likely to follow through. In addition, research has shown that the “keeping up with the Jones’” factor helps inspire action. If I know you are recycling, I am more likely to recycle if we are friends or colleagues.
