Get your employees talking about energy waste

If you get your employees talking about energy waste, they will have it on their mind and more likely take appropriate actions to stop waste. Implement a simple contest and watch their interest soar.

We make doing energy contests easy.  This energy conservation contest is simple to implement and is very low cost.

One contest would be to have employees guess the amount of the next 2 months energy bill. 25 closest guesses gets a t-shirt or similar incentive. Repeat the contest with a different utility bull every 2 months. We can provide the collateral materials to make this a big success.

Stopping energy waste is sometimes painfully slow

Progress is sometimes painfully slow in your efforts at stopping energy waste. What does create a quick return is making sure you have an employee participation program that gets them involved with day to day efforts at helping you find and fix all the existing easy to implement problems.

There are hundreds of energy wasters that are easy to deal with like leaks of all kinds, machines not being turned off when not in use, lights left on, doors not shut, seals needing repaired, filters not being changed, freezer temperatures not right, suggestions not being suggested and the list can go on and on.

Having an ongoing active, employee participation awareness program, will pay dividends over and over again by getting your people involved.

Your program should provide 1. Clarity of the problem and how everyone is affected, 2. Short and long term goals, 3. Suggestions on things to do, 4. A suggestion program directed at energy issues, 5. Charts to show progress, 6. Posters, banners, information reminders and handouts that all create reminders; and nudges your people toward the daily efforts needed, 7. Inexpensive rewards and incentive for reaching milestones and goals.

When starting an energy program, start smart

When starting an energy conservation  initiative, start smart. Having key people in the involved departments, creating the environmental goals together, is a good first step to getting mutual buy-in and a supportive team.

Everything needed to accomplish the goal needs to be put on the agenda and agreed upon by all. Then together, the parties need to plan each part needed to be done and become a support system for one another.

Remember, we can help. Call 800 875-1725 for individual support’
