How to

engage employees to make sustainable choices?

The sustainable employment agreement engages employees to make more sustainable choices. For example, as an employee you receive extra holidays if you choose to go on holiday by train, bicycle or on foot.

The sustainable employment agreement engages employees to make more sustainable choices. For example, as an employee you receive extra holidays if you choose to go on holiday by train, bicycle or on foot. Encouraging sustainability is the primary aim of the labour agreement, but as young people today are actively choosing to work for employers with sustainability at the forefront of how they operate, the sustainable employment agreement also helps to attract and retain top talent and increases employee commitment. 

Attracting and retaining talent is essential to maintaining and increasing the value of any business. However, in this time of "The Great Resignation" it's getting more difficult as young talent increasingly wants to work for a company that is known for its social commitment. The green employment contract is a nice welcome gift for these employees: a contract that expresses what a company stands for and makes new colleagues feel welcome and taken seriously. 

Socially aware employees who have been with the company for some time are also more likely to look for opportunities to become personally involved in sustainability initiatives at work. Although sustainability is increasingly embedded in the business strategy and agenda of large organisations, employees also want to be actively engaged. By making agreements together, employees can also have an impact on sustainable change within the organisation. 

In fact, clear and understandable language in the contract not only improves staff engagement, but also helps to build trust and protect the company's reputation.

In line with the growing need for meaningful work and sustainability

According to Van de Goorbergh, the initiative is in line with the growing need for meaningful work and sustainability. It appeals to her that the contract provides concrete incentives for green behaviour. Socially responsible entrepreneurs often have abstract sustainability goals. They are difficult to measure, as the Annual Reports Survey 2021 of Leiden University shows. With this contract you make verifiable arrangements..

“Telling our story in the clearest possible way”

The team of Patroon Legal Design has been of tremendous help to us in the preparation for a court hearing. We needed to guide the court through very complicated calculations. Their designs were very helpful to tell our story in the clearest possible way. Above all, the team was a joy to work with.
What makes Patroon Legal Design stand out is that they know the pressure and unpredictability of the legal practice and adapt their own schedule to accommodate our timetable.

“Visuals make a difference”

‘I always notice how visuals make a difference during litigation. The judges are often really enthusiastic if they are presented with a visual overview of a complex case. They often use these visuals as starting point during court hearing to ask questions and to arrange arguments.’

“Making complex matter comprehensible”

‘Thanks to legal design we make complex matter comprehensible. They show again and again that a contract does not have to be boring. By moving away from the current practices, legal agreements become more understandable. That is the ultimate goal: understanding each other and writing that down as simple as possible.’
