AusLSA Launches Staff Engagement Toolkit

16 September 2013 4:16 PM | Anonymous member

The eternal challenge with sustainability is getting people to change behaviour. How do you communicate with your staff to encourage and facilitate better habits and decision making?

AusLSA is proud to announce the release the Staff Engagement Toolkit which provides AusLSA Members with a structured process for getting your colleagues on-board and is jam-packed with ideas, suggestions and resources that you can use to inspire and engage. 


Start a green team
A green champions group or network enables interested and motivated individuals to become involved in the firm’s environmental objectives. As an adjunct to driving change from the top of the firm, a green team allows a wider range of people to be involved in generating environmental ideas and solutions.

The AusLSA Staff Engagement Toolkit provides guidance on how to establish a green team and take a more strategic approach to your firm's sustainability programs. 


Contribute your ideas

All the ideas and resource in the Toolkit were provided by the members of the AusLSA Staff Engagement Working Group. So, return the favour and take a moment to contribute your suggestions using the comments fields on the website. You could add:
  • your favourite engagement references and resources
  • ideas and suggestions for changing behaviour, and
  • anecdotes of the successful (and not so successful) sustainability initiatives you'be been involved in. 
If all AusLSA Members contributed one idea, we would have another 46 resources we could use!
