“Business as usual is dead. Green growth is the answer to both our climate and economic problems.” ~ Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen, 2009

Engagement is critical in transforming your organization into a Sustainability enterprise, albeit, it will take time, patience and learning from experiences from your people. Engage your employees and make all of your employees accountable. Strong cultures empower their people, they recognize their talents, and give them a very clear role with responsibilities they’re accountable for. General George S. Patton Jr. was interviewed and shared this thought; “Don’t tell people how to do things, tell them what to do and let them surprise you with their results.” When these positive changes have been observed, its important to keep the momentum going and celebrate by:
•    Publicly recognizing their work
•    Monetary rewards (bonus, promotion, trips, etc.)
•    Just saying “thank you” also goes a long way

But, employee engagement is more than praise and recognition. It is enriching what your culture already possesses and builds on employee experience, education and personal responsibilities for the environment and social sectors. Sustainability’s future will be driven by a social business model influenced by economic, environmental, social issues, and swayed by generational mores.
