Step Nine: Keep Employees Informed and Involved

Provide regular program updates. For long-term success, positive communication and employee recognition are critical. Show people how their participation produces results. Here are some suggestions for keeping staff and management informed and involved:

  • Write an article about the program's successes and staff involvement for the company newsletter.
  • Send e-mail updates on a regular basis.
  • Post flyers reminding employees of program goals.
  • Encourage each department to designate a "team leader" to monitor efforts.
  • Train new employees during the orientation process.
  • Give awards to employees or departments who have demonstrated innovative strategies for waste reduction and recycling.
