Employee involvement is a must for all energy saving solutions.
If you want your energy management plan to be an effective one, your employees have to be involved. You can learn more about the importance of employee involvement by checking out our latest blog. Now that you know why it’s important for your employees to be involved, you need to learn how to get your employees involved. Here are a few ways to get your employees excited about energy management:
#1. Make your goals known.
Whatever your energy management goal is, if you want your employees to be a part of working towards that goal, they first need to understand what it is. This way, the goal isn’t just the owner’s goal or management’s goal, it is the entire company’s goal.
#2. Use your employees’ strengths.
We all have our own strengths and weaknesses, and good management is all about being able to use those strengths to your benefit. For instance, if someone has a lot of experience with recycling, ask them to run a recycling program at your company.
#3. Give your employees an incentive.
Set up an incentive program for reaching company goals as well as individual goals. Not only does this keep employees involved on an individual basis, but it also encourages accountability for reaching the company’s overall goal.
Your employees play a big role in your ability to reach your energy goals. Without their help, you will have to fight an uphill battle. If you need help finding the right energy saving solution for your company, contact us today!
