We view a company’s efforts to reduce their environmental impact as simply another important area for innovation and improvement. By applying a proven innovation methodology, there is no limit to the "Green Ideas" a company can find.
Canonsburg, PA (PRWEB) April 7, 2010
Many organizations are wondering what they can do to make their businesses greener and more sustainable. Flagpole Software, a division of MindMatters Technologies, recently announced a free program to help companies do this using the power of employee collaboration: Just in time for Earth Day on April 22.
“Our customers present Green Challenges to their employees as an effort to ramp up sustainable practices” said John Gabrick, CEO of Flagpole. A so-called ‘Green Challenge’ is a company-sponsored event designed to inspire suggestions for improving sustainability and environmental friendliness. “The ideas and projects are already being talked about within your walls, but most companies have no idea how to capture and evaluate them, much less turn them into valuable initiatives” continued Gabrick.
MindMatters has been a leading firm in their field for over a decade. Their software and expertise helps global companies like Sony, Johnson & Johnson, and 3M supercharge innovation. But what do they know about Going Green?
“We view a company’s efforts to reduce their environmental impact as simply another important area for innovation and improvement,” continues Gabrick. “By applying a proven innovation methodology, there is no limit to the ‘green ideas’ a company can find.”
Flagpole’s process makes it easy to leverage the wisdom of the crowd to uncover and validate suggestions for sustainability. For a limited time, Flagpole is offering their program for FREE to companies wishing to conduct their own Go Green Initiatives: a timed web event that will end on Earth Day.
All of the tools are included at no cost: a customized, hosted web application for collaboration among employees, as well as pre-authored ‘Green Challenges’(or you can create your own business-specific challenges). Flagpole will even provide a follow-on benefit report and Press Release at no charge or obligation.
“We really hope companies will use our offering to find better ways to recycle, reduce waste, and lessen their carbon footprints,” stated Mr. Gabrick. “As a business leader, it should not be overlooked that there are also some very compelling secondary reasons for doing this. Many of our customers report finding substantial costs savings, new opportunities, or profit centers within their organizations. All of these things inevitably surface when you start looking for ways to conserve.”
Interested organizations should contact Flagpole immediately to get started in time for Earth Day.
