Having a sustainability strategy isn’t enough; we need to engage with staff to create buy-in and move people towards a common goal. Communication is the key to engagement. It contributes to the successful delivery of a scheme by stimulating and helping to maintain an interest in how individuals can better manage their waste and contributes to a healthier environment.
Climate change is a topic taking centre stage nowadays. Almost everyone wants to play their part, big or small in creating a more sustainable future for our children and our children’s children.
In our experience, engagement starts with internal communication and training for key stakeholders. By sharing our knowledge of key sustainability issues, people will understand and support change. A creative, bespoke campaign that inspires, motivates and makes everyday actions relevant will ultimately determine whether our customers achieve their environmental aspirations and deliver a truly sustainable future.
We have a proven track record of success in engaging and delivering against our customer’s environmental aspirations. For interested customers, we work with you to apply for awards so that your efforts can be externally validated and your successes recognised.
We will often hear our clients’ staff say “I didn’t know which bin to put this waste into” or “I didn’t think this could be recycled”. We recognise that education and training are essential to ensuring your business achieves its environmental goals.
Some of the training tools that we can provide you with include:
WasteSmart Training courses can be delivered at a Foundation or Advanced level supported by the Chartered Institute of Waste Management (CIWM). The course content is reviewed regularly to ensure it is up-to-date and reflects best practice, available technology and current legislation. They’re designed to be easily digestible with a delegate workbook to use during the course which can be kept as a reference source.
Webinars are used to deliver on-line content such as navigating and effectively using our online portal, “the Hub.” All webinars are delivered by content experts who can answer questions and expand further on subject matter that’s of particular interest to the user.
Welcome Packs are provided during the mobilisation phase of the relationship providing sites with information about your environmental goals, defined lines of communication and site specific service information.
Bespoke posters and signage can be created by our inhouse marketing team using clear colour schemes and visuals to identify which waste types go in which bins. These can be produced in several languages to ensure every member of your team can clearly understand the messaging being relayed.
Toolbox Talks are created and delivered via our Academy to Business with a specific training program being produced to meet your needs.
Waste Manuals are developed to assist in our change management programs.
