Don’t waste this opportunity: The upside of COVID19 office shutdowns

Following from our 5-step guide for improvement, Edge has rallied leaders in our network to host a lunchtime conversational profiling organisations making bold steps in workplace waste systems and employee engagement. We aim to inspire you with the ideas, strategies and know-how to ensure your tenants or employees come back more engaged on sustainability than before.

Working from home has become the new normal and offices across the country are sitting empty, for now.  As we start planning a return to offices, we have the chance to re-define systems, behaviours and expectations in the workspace. You’ll learn: 

  • How to make behvioural change easy – identify and use employee interests to drive engagement
  • How to empower waste/sustainability leadership in the workplace 
  • How to run workplace programs on a shoestring – where you can turn for funding and the ready made resources/toolkits and programs you can access for waste education
  • How COVID has effected waste service provision and how you can contract more intelligently to reduce costs
  • The key steps to implement best practice signage, office layout, cleaning and office procurement
