At lunchtime on the 1st of February, Do Nation hosted an engaging conversation on climate employee engagement trends in 2023, using data points from the Greenprint report.
The discussion provided the audience with insight on climate and employee engagement from the various industries and sectors of the panellists.
The conversation was moderated by Flo Parker, a coach and ex-partnerships manager at Futurelearn; and involved Julia Chalmers, head of sustainability at SSE; Nicky Browning B Corp and talent manager at Graze; Paul Lewis, CEO and founder at Seismic; as well as Do Nation’s founder and CEO, Hermione Taylor.
Below we summarise the illuminating points made during the discussion. If you like, you can watch the full recording.
SSE entered Do Nation’s metaphorical HQ (we’re fully remote) back in April 2021 looking for a programme that could help connect and engage employees with their net zero strategy and partnership with COP26.
Julia Chalmers led the charge and, with a helping hand from the Do Team, designed a brilliantly successful engagement programme. Let’s find out how they did it.
Here at remote-Do-HQ, we’ve taken a little of our lock-down time to learn from our clients’ wealth of experience around communicating with their people and encouraging them to try out new healthy, environmentally friendly habits.
What have they learned about engaging employees in their Do Nation pledge challenges? And how could this help others to run effective pledge challenges during the corona crisis?
UPDATE: We’ve extended the deadline for signing up to 15th February!
For those of you who were at the B Corp retreat this summer, you’ll know that if it wasn’t for B Corps, Do Nation probably wouldn’t still be around. You’ll know how much I love working with businesses like you who share our passion and drive for using business as a force for good. And how when it comes to B Corps, it’s more true than ever that small actions add up to make a big difference.
That’s why I’ve decided to run another B Corp challenge this January, helping to build a sense of the movement’s impact with your staff, allowing all members of B Corp teams to feel like an active part of this amazing community.
