The link between big business and the environment can be fraught, as is currently being highlighted by the BP oil spill.With high media coverage, these kinds of disasters only add more fuel to the fire in terms of commercial corporations being seen as evil,money grabbing bodies who will stop at nothing to take all they can from the earth to make a profit.
But this is simply not true.Unless selfemployed, most individuals will work for a corporation,and individuals have a voice and the power to choose their actions.
As we spend so much time at work,where possible,we want to work for a company that shares our values.And history has shown that when a company is doing wrong, the whistleblower is usually an employee.
This issue of CM comes with the annual Green Cleaning Guide. The cleaning industry is one of the only industries that has employees in practically every other sphere of business.And all these businesses are under pressure to save resources as this helps to save money. Efficiency, innovation and quality all naturally fall under the umbrella of sustainability. If you are saving anything, you are being more sustainable.
However, back to people.They are your most precious resource.They are the frontline of your army.They need the skills and the education to do their job right the first time around. If a service is not excellent, and has to be repeated, then that creates waste. Aim to be the best, the first time and every time.
