|ITUgreen provides strategic corporate training, through various channels, aimed at assisting organizations in creating a truly green corporate culture through the creation of green workplace structures and behaviors that will influence the social environment, ultimately imparting a positive impact on employee engagement, ethics, job satisfaction, productivity and performance. We work with management to develop a strong working collective within the firm, and to interact effectively and sustainably with society at large, especially in confronting the new challenges of the global market.
Our focus is derived from "The Green Handbook" that serves as a basis for balancing the Green Agenda to include an equal emphasis on our social environment and the application of interpersonal behavioral ecology. Interpersonal behavioral ecology focuses not on the things we do to our physical environment, but on the effects we have on our social environment and aims to fill this previously unarticulated need. It provides a new and scientifically proven model for the motivation behind all human actions, validated through research at Stanford University and the subject of several books and publications by Dr. Gerald Cory Jr.
