What is the significance of Business Sustainability Trainings?

The concept of business sustainability stems from the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, that were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to bring an end to poverty, safeguard the planet, and make sure that all people experience peace and prosperity by 2030.

A robust Business Sustainability Training system is critical to:

  • Enable employees make business sustainability a part of their job.
  • Ensure employee retention in the longer run.
  • Drive customer loyalty as a continued outcome of business sustainability initiatives.

What strategies should you adopt to establish an efficient Business Sustainability Training practice?

Prioritizing business sustainability in an integrated way requires training initiatives to be aligned with the company’s core values.

To establish an efficient Business Sustainability Training practice, we begin with:

  • Creating a blueprint for change management: Goal creation to communication plan, identifying roadblocks, and finally a meticulous strategy for corporate training including an upskilling plan for trainers.
  • Generating awareness: Short videos, posters, emailers, or newsletters to create curiosity for the new change.
  • Setting up a Formal Training process: Structured training (that is reviewed periodically) with clear goals to trigger behavior change in employees that can be measured and sustained over a period of time.
  • Ensuring reinforcements: Learning aids such as infographics, mind maps, FAQs, factsheets to ensure positive strengthening for correct behaviors triggered through Formal Training.
  • Promoting connect and outreach: Learning aids for continuum after the Formal Training is over and a Social Learning space for collaboration.

To further build the practice, we propose that the delivery strategy leverages the following:

  • Leadership involvement to support the overall change and ensure sustainable implementation.
  • Self-paced Learning using immersive learning strategies including Personalized Learning pathways.
  • Blended Learning that allows intervention from experts on key topics/concepts that need deeper explanation or clarification.
  • Optimal blend of Formal and Informal Learning to drive continuous learning and development, especially Social Learning to allow the exchange of different points of view and develop processes for collective action and reflection over time.
