Sustainability challenges for companies are here to stay
Sustainability is no longer just an option for companies. To keep up with the growing expectations of customers and investors and with the perpetually stricter environmental regulations, companies need to focus on their sustainability approaches. As every employee plays a role in how the organisation holds its activity and evolves, sustainability understanding and engagement is crucial on all management levels. However, this is far from an easy task. That is where 2030 Builders brings its expertise and distinctive approach to your organisation’s journey towards sustainability. Our methods have proven to reach valuable results in a short period of time. So today we want to share with you why 2030 Builders facilitates the best sustainability learning for your employees.
“Using this tool will give you one concrete and feasible goal on how to move on with the SDGs in your company. This is the first time I have seen such smooth help for companies to take that first important step and get past the bewilderment and confusion.” – Jesper Toft, CfL, on our ‘SDGs Know-How’ module
The future is digital and so are we
The digital era changed dramatically the way we approach every aspect of our lives. It transformed the way we communicate, make choices and completely revolutionised how we learn.
Even previous to the coronavirus pandemic, digital learning tools were on the rise. However, the pandemic completely changed our approach to learning, working and interacting with others. Even once the COVID-19 times are behind us, these transformations will persevere as many companies experienced the benefits of remote work.
2030 Builders’ core is digitalisation. Therefore, we constructed an easily accessible solution. This ensures avoiding additional burdens like physical learning materials and coordinating with a facilitator. That is why our plug & play digital solution allows remote access to training and tools. Moreover, it can be utilised at the company’s own pace.
Sustainability is a team effort
Teamwork is fundamental for moving forward. Firstly, collaborative learning promotes knowledge acquirement and retention. Moreover, it enhances communication between teams and departments, for more efficient long-term cooperation and better results. This ensures better employee engagement and greater results and achievements.
However, a collaborative process that lacks guidance may lead to delayed breakthroughs, frustrations and even conflicts. The existence of a tool or person outside the organisation is essential for establishing an efficient collaboration and for reaching optimal results.
At 2030 Builders, we believe that every organisation has the power to achieve greatness thanks to its nucleus – the employees. We built our modules to enhance collaboration and co-creation, making sure that employees unleash their true potential while also enjoying the process.
‘Play is our brain’s favourite way of learning’
Involving gamification in the learning process is believed to increase engagement, motivation and efficiency. Furthermore, it promotes productivity, creativity, and the formulation of innovative ideas.
A study on over 3000 participants found that gamification also improves the learning outcome. Moreover, the study reports four reasons why learners enjoy gamification. It stimulates enthusiasm for learning, can deliver feedback and recognition on performance and can facilitate goal setting.
Through our work, we have been able to see first-hand the advantages of gamification for employees. We know that it fosters long-term knowledge and supports employees to enjoy learning about sustainability. That is why our modules have been designed specifically to stimulate teamwork and co-creation through gamification.
“All meaningful, organic, and foundational learning is at heart playful and ludic.” – Marcelo Suárez-Orozco, Professor at the University of Massachusetts Boston, as quoted here.
We bring sustainability learning to the understanding of employees
2030 Builders knows that employees are the core of any organisation. They are the key to achieving the company’s goals and advancing sustainability throughout all activities. Moreover, they are the ones who create a sustainability culture within the company, which is crucial for reaching outstanding sustainability goals.
By bringing sustainability to the employees’ understanding, the organisation makes sure they are equipped with the right skills to adapt to the constant industry transitions. Change is the only constant and employees need to be one step ahead of it for their organisation to move forward.
Creating a genuine sustainability culture is not possible by involving solely the upper management. Therefore, we believe in involving all employees in the company’s sustainability agenda by making it relatable, actionable, and fun.
“A strong sustainability culture exists if people share a belief in sustainability’s importance and behave in ways that support it.” – Tom Bateman, ‘5 ways to create a strong sustainability culture’, 2019, GreenBiz
