Korn Ferry: How to Build a Net-Zero Workforce Today.

Today is Friday, March 22 2024.

Recent article from Korn Ferry recently explored how organizations can build a net-zero workforce for the future, now and on time to reach net zero by 2050, and significantly reduce emissions by 2030.

Korn Ferry help companies to design optimal organization structures, roles, and responsibilities, help them hire the right people and advise them on how to reward and motivate their workforce while developing professionals as they navigate and advance their careers.

A net-zero workforce typically consists of employees who possess green skills and have experience in decarbonization, according to Korn Ferry.

"It’s not just employers in the energy sector who need to build green energy teams". Virtually any role in organizations concerned with climate issues could "have a green element—from sustainable procurement to communications". And a green skills shortage is coming for companies, as referred in the post indicated below "LinkedIn: Global Green Skills Report 2023."

And top leadership and middle managers robust engagement becomes even more relevant. Its gives action and deliverables after the organization's green commitments to the society and customers. Leaders that include and authentically welcome also "naysayers and robust discussion".

“Be ready to welcome a new generation of climate activists".

Korn Ferry's own research shows that "over half of millennials consider themselves climate activists and 65% of Gen Z would contemplate changing careers for a sustainability-focused role ... Oil & Gas industry broadly has been finding it tough to attract entry level talent in recent years".
