...employees working for a company that is perceived to be green or environmentally conscious are more satisfied with their jobs than employees working for other companies.
Huntersville, NC (PRWEB) July 27, 2012
Everblue recently provided two Building Performance Institute Building Analyst courses at A-TEC Energy’s company office in Iowa. A-TEC selected Everblue, the nation’s premier training provider for sustainability courses, to educate its employees to become BPI certified energy auditors.
A-TEC Energy works with electric and natural gas utility companies to improve their energy efficiency through energy audits and managing their incentive and rebate programs. A-TEC monitors client’s incentive programs using developed reporting capabilities to ensure that they perform at the highest potential.
By offering the BPI Building Analyst course to its employees through Everblue, A-TEC gains a competitive edge in the energy auditing industry. The BPI Building Analyst course teaches students how to conduct energy audits and what solutions to suggest based on building science and energy efficiency standards.
“Companies are realizing that sustainability is no longer a trend,” said Cadi Saunders, Business Development Manager at Everblue. “Everblue offers many courses that can help a company improve its sustainability practices, and we will come to your office to educate your employees.”
Both A-TEC Energy and Everblue are environmentally conscious companies constantly working to improve their corporate sustainability.
A recent study found that employees working for a company that is perceived to be green or environmentally conscious are more satisfied with their jobs than employees working for other companies. The Charlton College of Business at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth conducted the study and determined that there is “a significant positive relationship between employee satisfaction and [the] level of perceived environmental performance.”
A-TEC Energy is taking the necessary steps to ensure that their employees are satisfied with their work by hosting two BPI certification courses for its employees. Everblue can teach any of its courses onsite at a client’s facility. The company wants to build Earth’s sustainable workforce by helping companies educate their employees about sustainability practices.
