For this post, assume you’re an employee who works on-site. If you work from home, you simply need to follow the home-based energy savings tips you see so often on this blog.
You may think at first,”Why should I care about saving energy at work? What’s that going to do for me?”
That’s a great question to ask. And we’ve got some even better answers for you:
- You’ll Feel Good about Yourself
Whether you believe in global warming and potentially catastrophic climate change doesn’t matter. Opinions on the truth of that vary widely.
However, you can probably agree saving energy does reduce harm to the planet. So, put simply, it’s the right thing to do. When you use energy in the most efficient way possible at your work, and encourage others to do the same, you’ll feel good about yourself.
That’s something money can’t buy.
- Improve Workplace Morale
Most people can agree saving energy is a good thing. So, not only will you feel good about what you’re doing, but your whole workplace will too.
When everyone feels good about being at work, they do better quality work and have higher productivity levels. And, your workplace becomes more attractive to higher-quality candidates.
Any business appreciates benefits like those.
- Save Your Company Money
Your company will appreciate the extra money you save too. It may be much more than you realize because you’re used to dealing with your personal finances.
That money can then be used to grow your business in other ways. That’s something your senior management will like.
- Get an Advertising Chip for Your Prospects
For most companies, the fact that they’re “green” isn’t a primary concern in the prospect’s decision to buy. At the end of the day, the company needs to make money or save money.
At the same time, seeing that you’re environmentally friendly is a nice bonus. And, all other factors being equal, it could in some cases be the determining factor in whether your company gets chosen or not.
Saving Energy At Your Work? That’s a No-Brainer!
When it comes to saving energy at your workplace, it’s really an easy decision. There’s really no downside to it. And you start experiencing the benefits almost right away.
So, observe your workplace. Consider ways you could save energy. And get them in front of your boss.
