It was an honour to run this masterclass forย The Matcha Initiativeย last Friday, inย Elitez Group of Companiesย offices. I left the room energized by the participantsโ€™ interest and engagement, on a topic that is so critical.ย 

A few key take-away, if you missed the session:

1.ย ย โžก#Sustainableย #HRย practices are the true mirror of how you treat people (inside and outside your company). Think employees, but also potential candidates, alumni, communities and your business ecosystem. ย What do you want to see in this mirror? ๐Ÿ”Žย 

2.ย ย โžกSome deep trends are impacting how organizations rethink at HR (the rise of the mental health concern, the never ending โ€œwar on talentโ€, the changing aspirations of workersโ€™ generations, etcโ€ฆ). How do you make sense of these in your HR strategy? ๐Ÿค” ๐Ÿ’ก

3.ย ย โžกThere is a huge short term and long term cost of not doing anything!ย #Businessย leaders,ย #CHROsย andย #CFOs, be aware of this! Over-maximizing profit does not sit well with sustainable and progressive practices (in HR like in any other area by the way). ๐Ÿ’ธ

4.ย ย โžกYou can use a simple framework to progress. Does not matter if you are at a 3 or a 8 on the scale of sustainable practices in your organization, there is always a starting point! ๐Ÿ“ˆ

5.ย ย โžกEngage, engage, engageโ€ฆ at all levels of your organization, and start from the top. If leaders are not engaged and leading the way, itโ€™s like writing with your other hand: itโ€™s hard, it takes time, and you want to switch back to your other hand quickly (aka old habits) โœ ๐Ÿ˜“

6.ย ย โžกWe all hate greenwashing, right? Donโ€™t get intoย #peoplewashingย (I think I might have invented this one!). โ€ฆ Be genuine, committed and sincere in your decisions and actions. People notice when you do the right thing, for real. They also notice quickly when you donโ€™t and the price to pay to build your credibility back is huge (if it ever comes back...). โš–

7.ย ย โžกYou donโ€™t know where to start? Dream big, start small. Design your plan, see what you can easily implement first. ๐ŸŒˆ

๐Ÿ“Œ Interested to know more?
