Here is the perfect opportunity for you.
Thanks to social media, a more socially conscious public and a workforce demanding brands and employers to reflect their own values, here is a campaign with the perfect way to show your employees, stakeholders and consumers what’s important to you.
By getting involved with the Small Action Big Impact campaign, your efforts can continue for the next 12-months, providing your business with more than just environmental benefits beyond the campaign.
REDUCE WORKPLACE COSTS
Positive changes in workplace behaviour can reduce energy costs by 10% (Carbon Trust) not to mention the ongoing benefits of improved waste disposal and travel costs.
By engaging employees in sustainability measures, they’re more likely to factor it into their workday — unlocking significant innovations and commitments.
Having a network of sustainability champions in your business is valuable for any workplace. By asking people to take action and lead change, you can identify who is most committed to sustainability and recruit them as champions for broader sustainability measures within your business.
ATTRACT AND RETAIN TALENT
78% of millennials want to work for an organisation that makes a positive social impact. (Kin & Co, 2016) Therefore there’s a real HR benefit to making existing employees aware of the work and involvement, and making the involvement part of your brand strategy.
ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS
By taking part and getting employees to take action, the awareness of your sustainability work is raised and making your team feel more valued.
There are also benefits to your public image; if an organisation builds sustainably measures into regular business practice, the benefits will last long after the campaign ends.
CONNECT TO GLOBAL GOALS
Involvement with this interactive, high profile, digital campaign means your business is demonstrating a commitment to towards sustainability, and connecting your employees to the Sustainable Development Goals.
Each month has a theme in line with a different sustainability goal, contributing to the UN’s SDG goals. By joining #SmallActionBigImpact, you can proudly say you’re already working towards a better world by 2030.
Leading by example towards positive change means inspiring others to do the same across your workplace, with organisations you collaborate with and with those you seek to work together with in the future. Your workplace achievements will feed into your organisation’s overall impact, boosting your business goals and overall public image.
