Sustainability and Climate Change Recruiting – Brand and Economic Benefits

If your company is hiring for new roles, it helps to have good sustainability credentials particularly if you want to hire a younger workforce.

New applicants today will review your environmental record prior to accepting a new position.

Here are some considerations when recruiting a climate change or sustainability team.

Brand reputation

Today consumers and employees expect a company to have substantial social and environmental initiatives in place.

Green is a must-have and longer a nice to have

Now there are more compliance and regulatory demands that require a company to be accountable and meet green goals. Not being perceived as socially and environmentally responsible as a company will have a negative impact on your ability to attract, hire and retain talent.

A company’s website or career page should show what initiatives are in place. This will help with sustainability recruiting efforts.
