Best of Earth911 Podcast: WeSpire CEO Susan Hunt Stevens on Inspiring Sustainable Changes in Business
There is momentum around sustainability in society but millions of companies and billions of people are not engaged with the ideas and taking action. Many simply don’t know where to start. In this podcast, we talk about inspiring change in organizations with Susan Hunt Stevens, founder and CEO of WeSpire, which develops tools, services, and informational campaigns that help companies improve their sustainability performance, inclusivity, social impact, and employee well-being. WeSpire’s technology uses behavioral science to present goals, motivating information, and actions that employees can take to contribute to the organization’s sustainability goals. But choosing the practices to emphasize, deciding where to start, and understanding the best way to engage employees, partners, and customers in your mission is the hard work that is just beginning for so many companies.
Across the board, these programs are more important than ever as employees, especially younger ones, are looking for purpose and meaning in their work as the pandemic continues to disrupt life. WeSpire’s programs have been used by companies with more than 2 million employees. It’s an opportunity to reset not just environmental goals but also the way your business shares information internally and externally, its role in the community, and much more.
