Global warming and climate change are on the minds of employees and corporations these days. The crisis is daunting but every company can do something meaningful to reduce its carbon footprint and help the environment.
Managing corporate supply chains now not only means insuring quality products but also insuring that the supply chain is sustainable and environmentally sound.
A good business practice that creates additional community benefit is to hire workers from community organizations that focus on workforce development.
This may include hiring from organizations that: transition homeless people back into the workforce, work with physically, developmentally disabled people to navigate the work environment and place them in the workforce, or have workforce training for youth.
