The 15-minute city: Creating a sustainable workplace

About This Webinar

Workplaces can have an enormous impact, not only on the employee experience, but on the broader communities, cities, and world they inhabit. Sustainable corporate work practices are not a novel concept—with many multinational companies dedicating workstreams and departments to these efforts. However, the global pandemic and emerging hybrid work strategies have provided a new lens through which to view them. 

A reluctance to use public transportation has resulted in commuting challenges for some employees—but work from home fatigue is real. At the same time, since the onset of COVID-19, global emissions of carbon dioxide have dropped. Can what’s good for the environment also be good for our businesses and teams? This session will answer that question and provide new strategies that may reduce your carbon footprint and increase employee satisfaction.
