How to Increase Your Employee Buy-in [2020]

Employees having a meeting and smiling

Increasing your employee buy-in may sound exciting and simple to accomplish, but in reality, for most organizations – it isn’t as easy to execute it to the targeted level.

With the scattered buzzwords of “employee engagement” or “employee buy-in”  and what those pretty word connections truly stand for – we must ask ourselves this one question.  

Why do we even need to keep our employees engaged? That is, especially, when Josh from HR always delivers on time and Helen from marketing goes prior to the assigned deadline. 

If the management of your enterprise operations seems to be running “just fine”, why even waste time on the unnecessary performance evaluations of your internal stakeholders?…

Impact Plan: Launch Event

On March 28, we had the official launch event to formally introduce our first product: Impact Plan. It was an exclusive event, invitation-only. The uniqueness of the venue – Improv Comedy Copenhagen (ICC) Theatre – allowed us to mix the presentation of the product with an entertaining show held by ICC Corporate team.

The event started with a welcoming flute of champagne and an initial networking session, allowing the attendees to introduce themselves to each other.

First to come on stage was Mia Negru, CRO & Co-Founder of 2030 Builders, with an introductory speech about the agenda for the evening.

Your words matter – how big organizations accidentally hinder sustainable change

Yesterday, while scrolling through my LinkedIn feed, I came across the following article from the World Economic Forum about SDG communication.

90% of the plastic polluting our oceans comes from just 10 rivers

SDG communication

This is a really interesting subject and I wanted to know more. However, what really got me, was the words the WEF decided should go along with it:

Eight of them are in Asia, two in Africa

‘Urg’ I thought to myself. ‘That’s a bad choice of words for this piece’.

The World Economic Forum, an International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation, is committed to improving the state of the world.…

Social Media and behavioral change – saving time, money and cutting the bulls***

In this post, you’ll get hands-on examples of how to use social media in SDGs for quick and dirty behavioral change campaigns. One of them took me 10 minutes to make and saved my workplace 2-4 weeks of work, and thousands of dollars.

In my day job, I convert recycling advice and environmental information into information that makes sense, and more importantly, that you can act on.

If I make you wiser that’s good, but I’m still only halfway there. For me to succeed, I need to give you the information you need, and the tools to act on it, while giving you that little push you need to change your actions.…

SDG 17: Partnerships for the goals

What is the purpose of SDG 17?

Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.

Reasons to work with SDG 17

Without a global commitment to sustainable development goals, they serve as little more than good intentions. The will and cooperation of the United Nations is the backbone that can drive global change.

This also means ensuring fair and continued financial aid, between countries. As of 2016, only six countries met the international target to keep official development assistance above 0.7% of gross national income. At the same time, 79% of all imports from developing countries enter developed countries duty-free, an imbalance which keeps developing countries struggling for financial independence.…

SDG 1: No Poverty

What is the purpose of SDG 1?

Eradicating poverty in all its forms.

Reasons to work with SDG 1:

According to the UNPD, eradicating poverty in all its forms remains one of the greatest challenges facing humanity. Across the globe, more than 800 million people are still living on less than US$1.25 a day. For many, lacking food, clean drinking water, and sanitation, is a part of everyday life.

How is 2030 Builders addressing SDG 1:

With many different initiatives in both the public and private sector, the goal aims at reducing the proportion of men, women, and children living in poverty, by at least 50% before 2030.…
