We all want a better world for ourselves and our children. Luckily, organizations can help the cause by promoting strategies that respect economic, social, and environmental well-being. Tech visionary Dave Wright explores how socially aware companies are tapping tech to transform right.
Welcome to the new world of work, where sustainability is now a business imperative. I think we can all agree that Earth is our favorite planet, and we all want a better world for ourselves and future generations. And, you and I are in a position to start making that happen.
We need to think about how we promote strategies that respect economic, social, and environmental well-being. Eighty-six percent of S&P 500 companies are publishing sustainability reports.
So, there’s buy-in for this, right? But the problem, well, the problem is tracking and reporting it is a bit like the wild west right now; a lot of sticky notes, and spreadsheets, and emails, and inconsistency. But people are finding ways to get consistency.
One financial services company uses ServiceNow to set goals and track efforts for 22 core sustainability metrics around things like governance, people, and the planet.
The ability of the Now Platform to ingest and consolidate that data allows them to report on progress in a consistent way. And, that visibility allows them to react faster. And, it also has an impact on the war for talent. If you look at Gen Z, the newest entries to our workforce, they’ve got opinions. They want to work for organizations that care about sustainability. And if you can lock down your future leaders by helping my favorite planet, then that’s transformation done right.
