Sustainable at Work

Sunday, June 26th, 2011

Are we applying the same principles of environmental sustainability to people in the workplace?

This was the topic for a recent  panel discussion put together by the Sustainable Business Alliance at the Hub Berkeley. The panelists included: Matt Bauer, President of BetterWorld Telecom, Jennifer Freitas, Human Resource Manager at Clif Bar, and Dr. Lori-Ann Gertonson, Founder of the Gertonson Institute, and were moderated by Marcel Allbritton.

Potentially, people are the most renewable and sustainable part of an organization. Among the discussion questions: How can companies create and maintain the physical, mental, and social well being of their employees? How does the well-being of workers impact business? What are the key principles for ensuring the sustainability of workers?

Some discussion highlights:

Here at BetterWorld we’re passionate about democracy in the workplace and have earned a spot on the World’s Most Democratic Places to Work list (verified and compiled by WorldBlu) for the past 5 years.
