SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 13 /CSRwire/ - Saatchi & Saatchi S, a global leader in sustainability strategy and employee activation, announced today that it has partnered with AngelPoints, a pioneering provider of enterprise software solutions for employee engagement and responsibility, to offer clients an innovative web-based platform for building a culture of sustainability within any organization. The newly launched PSP platform enables employees to chart individual and collective progress on a secure and reliable site easily accessed through a company’s intranet.

"Since we began our work in 2006 designing and implementing our Personal Sustainability Project ('PSP') for Walmart and its 1.5 million Associates, we have consistently striven to develop user-friendly tools for engaging employees with sustainability," said Judah Schiller, Executive Vice-President of Saatchi & Saatchi S. "Our partnership with AngelPoints enables Saatchi & Saatchi S to deliver greater value, impact and data precision for our existing clients, while bringing a new 'software-as-a-service' model to small and mid-size companies at a value price point."

The PSP framework for engagement is premised upon inspiring employees to adopt Personal Sustainability practices – small, repeatable actions that create a "win-win" for both individual and planet. Through PSP, every person in an organization, regardless of level or tenure, can realize the personal benefits of sustainability while playing an innovative role in a company’s broader social and environmental efforts. PSP helps clients by impacting:

  • Organizational Activation: Sustainability acts as a “connector” of disparate company initiatives and programs, boosting employee engagement and satisfaction, reducing turnover, and fostering behaviors that can lower healthcare costs.
  • Increased Awareness: Employees start to think beyond their personal roles and identify opportunities for cost savings and innovation.
  • Talent Attraction: 92% of today’s job-seekers want to work for a sustainable company. PSP demonstrates a credible commitment to sustainability.
  • Brand Ambassadorship: Employees with Personal Sustainability practices are more inclined to share their employer's sustainability efforts with peers, customers and communities.
  • Sustainability Reporting Made Simple: The web-based platform provides managers an easy way to gain accurate, user-generated inputs for CSR, sustainability, and HR tracking and reporting.

"A crucial gap exists in most corporate responsibility and sustainability strategies today: broad-scale, authentic employee engagement," said Andy Mercy, Chief Executive Officer of AngelPoints. "The PSP platform offers the marketplace an invaluable new tool for hardwiring sustainability into any corporate culture."
