Our generation and the ones before us are pushing to foster a sustainable planet. So if you believe in this very same green philosophy, you may want to look into working for a green company for a number of reasons, primarily because of its investment in the community.
Many green companies make it a priority to be inclusive of everybody—where all opinions relating to sustainability are heard and respected. Companies with green initiatives are already showing their support of preserving the earth for years to come and, as a result, the natural team unity follows.
For instance, Delta Hotels and Resorts has been around since 1962 and has always taken pride in their green projects.
Delta Hotels and Resorts, like many green companies, have an active green committee. “Our employees are really involved in the committee,” says Valerie Brive-Turtle, a Delta manager. “This is where everyone is welcome. Every week we have a meeting and this is where we discuss our green plans for the week.”
Furthermore, greener companies such as Delta, not only value their employee’s opinions, but actually look to build and execute the ideas. This is what green companies look to do, which is to lift their employees together with one common goal. Delta Hotels and Resorts is one of many that can be a home for eco-conscious graduates.
Brive-Turtle talks about an employee-run idea saying, “Our very own employees wished to contribute to the ‘clean up Toronto movement’ and, later on, Delta Hotels and Resorts and its employees were more than excited to plant trees in the Toronto Zoo.”
Green projects such as the ‘Clean up Toronto movement’ is a great team building exercise with a goal that allows you to enjoy your time with collogues and later in office. This gives the greener companies an advantage in team chemistry.
