When Just Kusko was preparing to travel overseas for work as a marketing manager at Dell, her father made her a bet: she wouldn’t be brave enough, or crazy enough, to wear her tiger costume there – and snap a picture with a bobby (one of London’s iconic police officers).
CALHOUN, Ga., October 23, 2017 /3BL Media/ - A corporate partner in this year’s CBRE Green Week, Mohawk Group and its employees took to social media to share how they are making greener choices, inside and outside of the office, to help make a more sustainable planet.
Green Week, which took place October 9–13, encourages companies to increase environmental awareness through employee engagement. It emphasizes the importance of health and wellness in the workplace, sheds light on energy and recycling best practices, and contributes to social and economic impact.
Fair Trade Certified works unlike any other ethical label by enabling direct economic benefit for farmers, workers, and fishermen. It’s simple: each time you buy something that's Fair Trade Certified, you help drive additional money—called Community Development Funds—back to the people who worked hard to make that product according to rigorous Fair Trade standards.
Social, environmental, and economic barriers are interconnected, and governments, companies, and nonprofits must work together to address global issues. Public-private partnerships (PPPs) can deliver meaningful and sustained outcomes to communities across the globe while accounting for differences in culture, society, and governing models.
Rapid technology advancements are changing conventional work paradigms and helping bridge geographical and cultural divides. Today’s workplace is extremely diverse – bringing together people from different ages, cultures, ethnicities, geographies and more. Success now depends on how leaders can help people grow and realize their full potential – both as individuals and as part of the teams they work with.
Americans drink more than 400 million cups of coffee per day. If tomorrow each one of us woke up and made just one cup Fair Trade, we would drive at least an additional $2 million dollars back to coffee farmers to help them address some serious challenges. In just one day. Because of one little choice. That’s pretty amazing.
Big issues call for big solutions. Declining community health, poor economic sustainability, and insufficient access to education are just a few of societal challenges we face. But when governments, companies, and nonprofits collaborate strategically, their powerful public-private partnerships (PPPs) can help to overcome them.
