Next week on September 28th, the Strathcona BIA will host Sustainability 3.0 our 3rd annual sustainability expo for small businesses. The event is by donation and open to all, with the purpose of engaging and inspiring the greater communities of Strathcona and Vancouver.
Sustainability is about more than simply recycling and reducing energy consumption. It's also about how we interact with our community and how we work with other organizations to become stronger businesses.
Now, more than ever, it's important for companies to recognize their staff in meaningful ways that make them feel valued and appreciated. As our economy evolves, people are more uncertain about their future, yet they are being asked to contribute more and work harder.
An organization is only as strong as its people, and these are the people that are working longer, coming up with new ideas, making sacrifices on your behalf, and hopefully helping you survive.
How are you showing them that their efforts are appreciated and that you value them as part of your community?
