The way the world works, individuals are much more likely to be quicker in innovating their lifestyle, than a group will ever be. This is the wonderful world of capitalism, where you can choose what products and services help to improve your life.
Many businesses around the world are trying their damndest to make sure they are achieving eco-friendly targets.
This could be something small and probably unnoticeable such as switching the light bulbs to something less demanding for electricity, and something large with company-wide goals of meeting a recycling target.
Don’t forget the largest minority you are in constant contact with, the individual. Despite you yourself setting aims for the business to go green or be greener, your employees’ lives should be made easier too. Especially if they have gone the way of being more eco-friendly also.
A business that can facilitate its workforce to be independently more efficient and greener, then they are more inclined to meet company green goals too.
#1 Assisting the Manpower
Having an office in the city is great for a number of reasons. You’re within earshot of lots of subways and other public transportation routes.
You’re close to different businesses and the financial districts. It’s also great for employees as they don’t have to drive to work and instead can come to work off their own steam. Bicycles are the common choice for people who work in cities, they are nimble and very cost-effective.
Your business should build a bike storing rack for all your workers. They should be able to rely on you to keep their bikes safe while they work. This means erecting strong metal guards, racks and perhaps providing the best padlocks on the market together with chains.
A covered walkway by a metal canopy can be supplying the bikes with shade all day long as well as protecting them from the rain. There are some excellent installation choices that are made from aluminum, a light, and strong material. The workmanship is of high quality so you won’t see the structure bend in hard winds or being easily destroyed by vandalism.
#2 Electric Charge Ports
Electric cars are taking over, it’s just a fact. We thought that it would take perhaps another decade, but we were wrong as they’re here right now. Now only are they here and being bought by masses of people, the battery technology is catching on really quickly.
For your workers, you can build electric charging ports so those with electric cars can charge up their vehicles in the company parking lot. You can make a scheme where workers have the charge bill cut from their wages or they simply opt into a program where they pay for this service.
It doesn’t take too long to fully charge a modern electric car, so if you strategically place the chargers between two parking spaces, one person can take it off their car and hand it over to another employee with an electric car.
Lifestyles are changing and thanks to technology, sooner than we expected. Build a bike rack for your workers to safely store their bicycles to encourage more people to trust you and go green. Electric charge ports for cars are valid for much the same reason and fashion and should be being built outside your building.
What are you doing to make things for eco-friendly outside for your staff?
