 Protecting productivity and profitability

Customers
With changes in customer expectation comes the necessity for a more transparent supply chain.

Staff
Attracting the best and most motivated teams to serve your customer means understanding the way their expectations have changed.

According to MetLife UK, companies with a disengaged workforce face;

      • -16% lower profitability
        -49% more accidents
        -37% more absenteeism
        -65% lower share price
        -18% lower productivity

While the average cost of recruiting a new member of staff is £30,614.00 according to Oxford Economics. And, Britain’s Healthiest Workplace records approximate absenteeism costs in the UK at £77.5bn per annum – while Gov.UK reports over 140 million days of work are lost each year in the UK due to sickness.  It does not take too much working out, therefore, to understand that your workforce is vital to your productivity and profitability.

The benefits of a structured approach

There are so many benefits to adopting a structured approach to sustainability. Engaging with your sustainability strategy and approach will help you to;

    • build a resilient organisation able to capitalise on opportunities
    • demonstrate purpose
    • build your brand, its perception and reputation

Financial Proposition for Sustainability

Louise Mitchell
Relationship Manager at Barclays International

Louise joined Barclays in 2012 as a Relationship Manager. Her role is to look after a portfolio of SME customers in all sectors covering the Dorset area. She is very passionate about sustainability and keen to inspire others to consider how to make changes to the benefit of their business and the planet. She states it is clear that Sustainability and Climate Change is a key differentiator, that will divide those that successfully adapt to the challenge – and those that do not. Therefore, having a clear, coherent and comprehensive strategy around sustainability is not optional for successful organisations.

A priority for Barclays is to support clients with their strategic shift towards clean, green solutions and they will run events to raise awareness to challenge boardroom thinking and facilitate change as well as continue to develop new market opportunities.


Procurement: Respond to requests for information and reduce supply chain risks

Glenn St. John-Colgan
Managing Director. Augmentas Group.
Chair Institute of Directors

Sustainability in business is as much about commercial principles as it is about carbon footprint and succession. When a business spends money, it is the residue of cost after sales, tax, staff, operations and all other incidental costs. It is literally your bottom line and your money. Similarly, your approach to sales and bidding, without investing in the right opportunities, you will not grow. If you manage both of these in a commercially-sustainable manner, growth is assured.

Building on our successful workshop last year, we will provide enhanced learning on how your business can drive value into your buying while giving you key insights on how you can improve your sales and bidding approach. We hope in a short period of time to challenge how you and your organisation buys and how you bid. We will provide helpful hints and tips on maximising your spend, mastering your data, generating savings, and winning more work without affecting your customers, your sales or your quality.


Ensure your organisation is Fit for the Future

Dominic Tantram MCIEEM FICRS CEnv
Founding partner of Terrafiniti LLP

Dominic helps leaders from business and NGOs develop realistic sustainability plans and actions, reduce risk, identify business value, save waste and money.
He considers himself lucky enough to explore sustainability vision and purpose, develop strategy, deliver training programmes and review communications for organisations like Elopak, Intersnack, Ajinomoto, WWF, WEF & WBCSD. With a few straightforward steps, most businesses can move from being lost in a bewildering whirl of social and environmental issues to taking a structured approach. They can shift from reacting and focusing only on risk and reputation – to thinking about value, opportunity, purpose, and legacy.


 Round Table Session

Each delegate will take part in a table discussion with their table host and presenter for the day.

Our lively panel discussion will be hosted by Consultants, Southern Sustainability Partnership.
