In parallel to developing and enhancing staff capacity, human resource management (HRM) can have a strategic role for positive environmental impact in social security institutions. By building conscious behaviour among employees, HRM can help develop sound and environmentally sustainable solutions and organizations.

These actions can take different shapes that range from promoting and supporting environmental impact awareness, to providing and developing programmes that reduce carbon footprint in daily activities, or even establishing policies and procedures that promote environmental responsibility, including work to incorporate metrics into performance evaluation.

Furthermore, social security beneficiaries and contributors who interact can be inspired by social security institutions and staff that show environmental responsibility. This helps motivate action towards reducing negative environmental impact and climate change. It can also add a sense of purpose and engagement among employees, increasing their job satisfaction and overall well-being.

Register for this webinar that will look at how the new ISSA Guidelines on Human Resource Management in Social Security Administration, can be applied to build environmentally conscious institutions as well as different cases and initiatives from three different institutions.
