Adopting eco-friendly business practices isn’t just good for the earth, but it can actually help boost your bottom line. By reducing waste and resource consumption, you can both promote environmental sustainability within your company, cut unnecessary costs, and attract environmentally conscious customers. It’s a win-win!

With Earth Day coming on April 22, let’s explore how technological solutions, like Connecteam, help improve the planet’s health and streamline how your business operates. 

Reduce Your Business’s Carbon Footprint

Managing your team with Connecteam is a great example of how technology can promote environmental sustainability in your business. 

You can create schedules, track employee hours, conduct training, stay on top of tasks, handle payroll, and much more all from a user-friendly digital app. 

Let’s take a closer look at how Connecteam can help your business go green.

Making the shift to digital task management means you can reduce the amount of paper you use across your company. With Connecteam, you can create digital forms and checklists right in the app to help team members keep track of their tasks, no matter where they’re working. You can even require them to leave an electronic signature once they complete a job.

By doing so, you eliminate the need for paper forms and checklists, as well as the waste that comes along with it. On a grand scale, this also reduces the number of trees cut down for paper production.

Scheduling without the hassle: environmental and operational benefits

How many schedule drafts do you usually make before it’s finalized? Whether you create the schedule with pen and paper or use Excel and a printer, you most likely go through several sheets of paper to create the weekly schedule.

With Connecteam’s employee scheduler, you not only eliminate the use of paper but can drastically speed up and streamline the entire process. With a user-friendly interface, scheduling templates, error-flagging, and auto-scheduling, you can create optimal team schedules with just a few clicks that align with employee preference and availability.
