Employee Green Program Strategies

How do you get employees to buy into change? Even green and sustainable change?

Self-interest always gets attention, and when you couple self-interest with the need for getting comfortable with change, companies have an interesting opportunity to lay the groundwork for workplace greening.

By starting with an employee benefit program that saves money, energy or air quality AT HOME first -- you get personal buy-in.

For example, provide financial support for adding a solar thermal or solar PV system to employee homes. Out of this specification, buying, installing and maintenance process, a few employees will rise as leaders, and more employees will feel comfortable with the technology. And they will tell stories to their coworkers. And you will have stories to add to your employee meetings and newsletters.

There's reason to believe that educational research is applicable to this phenomenon. Siblings and fellow students learn from one another more than they learn from parents and teachers! Coworkers also learn from one another!

Once employees are comfortable with "change" required for the new green initiatives, and they see the savings in their own wallets, they will be willing and able to apply their knowledge at work. Everyone wins, you have happy employees, you have new leaders, and your employees have added new skills and knowledge base to their capabilities.

And you save money and natural resources in not just one many!

PROBLEM: People resist change.

SOLUTION: Personal experience at home is the foundation for change at work.
