With such an emphasis on planet friendly products, businesses are now working harder than ever to ensure that their company is not looked at or seen in a negative light because they are not doing everything in their power to go “GREEN”. Product waste, non biodegradable materials and storm water run off are some of the key factors that are looked at when one considers how green a company is. However, there are many other ways that a company can choose to go green and help out the environment, while lower costs of products and making payouts for employees easier than ever before.
One such company is Macy’s which also owns the franchise Bloomingdales. They have created a massive online database known as their employee connection, that is allowing workers from all end of the spectrum to stay connected and up to date with all kinds of information concerning the company. Employees can log in and this allows ones to visit the site and view many different aspects concerning their work. Some of these include being able to check pay roll, download valuable forms dealing with tax or income. This is allowing the company to cut back on paper waste that would often times end up in the trash.
The way Macys and Bloomingdales has chosen to connect with their employees is truly remarkable and has set a standard that other companies, both large and small should take a look at and see if they can “keep up with the Jones’ ” so to speak. Large changes will need to be made over time to help the environment, but small changes done by many businesses will add up, in turn making large changes overall.
As we continue to put a strain on our earth, we will need to make changes like these more and more. Can your business follow suite and offer some kind of paper less way to inform your employees of company changes, payroll, up coming events and more? Change is not easy, and these things can take time, but one should also take note that going paper less can save not only time, but can actually save much money.
