Employees are often argued to be the greatest resource of a company, and the ability to leverage top talent can be a key differentiator.  In our professional consulting, we express to clients that engaging "green-minded” employees as key stakeholders is a natural extension of any business sustainability plan and essential to implementation success.  

“Engaged employees are not just committed. They are not just passionate or proud. They have a line-of-sight on their own future and on the organization’s mission and goals. They are enthused and in gear using their talents and discretionary effort to make a difference in their employer’s quest for sustainable business success”.  - Employee Engagement Report 2008.
 
Leading business view employee engagement as a multi-prong approach.  These companies consider the following:
 
•    What does it take to attract top talent?
•    What does it take to retain top talent?
•    How to engage talent in the business sustainability direction?
•    How to harness the eco awareness and encourage innovation in the organization?
•    How to promote learning and sustainable development across the company?
 
The video, Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us offers valuable insights as to the value of purpose and contribution.  Thank you to @ADHumlen on twitter for the video introduction.
