Webinar one
Staff engagement: two steps to create change

Before pressing print on your switch-off campaign posters or sending out details of your new staff competition, there are a few things you need to know about when it comes to human behavior that will help you design and implement the most effective staff engagement activities within your organisation.

This first webinar will give you insight into:

  • What influences the way we behave?
  • How to create the ‘ask’ when it comes to sustainability actions
  • How to talk to staff and understand their drivers
  • Engagement resources and tools to help get people on board.

Webinar two

This webinar will give you an understanding of:

  • The sad but true story of green teams – from excitement to extinction
  • What gives a green team purpose?
  • What support does a green team need?
