Commitment to social and environmental responsibility is increasingly central to an organization’s development. Canada’s Greenest Employers runs a yearly competition to recognize leaders in creating a culture, of not only environmental awareness, but impact in social, cultural, financial and educational programs. Many focus on the physical work space, training and skills development, hiring strategies, diversity and an area resonate with our work–immersive wellness initiatives and the promotion of natural health product and practices. Every 2017 winner has their own webpage with the full rationale behind their selection. Worth a look. You’ll be motivated and inspired to raise the bar! Make a list of “green” questions so that local, independent spaces thriving in communities across Canada, deserve a chance to attract your dollars with values that match your own.
