Increasingly companies are realizing that the key to overcoming the “Implementation Hurdle” and truly integrating Sustainability into their company’s operations, culture, and DNA, is employee engagement.
Kevin Wilhelm, CEO of Sustainable Business Consulting and author of Return on Sustainability, will discuss the barriers to implementation and the how, why nuts and bolts of employee engagement. He will highlight not only the latest research and trends, but speak from his experience with having worked with over 60 firms on implementing sustainability. He will bring knowledge and stories (both hilarious and frustratingly sad) of both successes and failures around employee engagement for sustainability.
