The sustainability study path includes personnel in the development of sustainability work.
The study path gives a clear picture of sustainability from the customer's business perspective, goals, and ethical policies through examples and participatory exercises. These exercises encourage employees to consider sustainability issues from their own perspectives. The training will form data to support the setting of sustainability objectives and measures. Simultaneously, the customer gets an idea of how sustainability is perceived in the organization: does the topic seem already familiar, distant, or challenging to connect to daily tasks?
It's important to be familiar with the level of knowledge and competence in the organization so that communication and management can be developed to achieve set objectives. When sustainability work is developed using a participatory training path, the employees’ opinions are heard, and the personnel is included in the process.
The sustainability study path includes:
- Getting familiar with the Sustainability programme or the Code of Conduct, i.e., the ethical principles, or creating them with the employees.
- Objectives and measures of the sustainability work.
- Different exercises, videos, and examples.
- The training generates data to support the sustainability work development and reporting further.
Benefits of the sustainability study path:
- The employees’ thoughts and ideas about sustainability are taken into consideration.
- Sustainability and its objectives become clearer for the personnel.
- Sustainability work will be personalized to the organization and be credible for the stakeholders.
- Data obtained from the study path helps to communicate and manage sustainability in a way that is understandable and fitting for the organization’s personnel.
