We Formed a Green Team
- Forming a green team in the workplace is very motivating to employees. We've been at it for a few years now - check us out at www.blrgreenteam.com. (Susan says: very nice site. Worth a look. Friday, August 6, I'm featuring a new free download from the EPA on the HR Blog. It gives HR people a free toolkit with ideas for green teams and energy conservation for employees. Everything needed for a brown bag or a green team. Take a look.)

Boycott SHRM 2010 Annual Conference
- The SHRM organization has forgoten who pays the majority of SHRM members to attend their conferences - corporations! They have added Al Gore as a keynote speaker. No Kidding! What a poor move. SHRM continues to show their liberal leanings and this is absolutely the final straw. Send SHRM a message expressing your outrage and boycott this year's conference before they turn into an organization like the NEA.

It's great to go green
- I think schools, work offices, and cities should all have green teams. I started a green team at my school. We recycle cans, bottles, and paper. Dont be afraid to help the environment. Make a green team where you live!

- Responding to your article on Corporate Responsibility. For those who feel corporations should be involved in the community and have a responsibility to give back to the community I highly recommend you check out working for Credit Unions. They invest both financially as well as time back into the community and focus on the underserved.

get someone to be the "green" person...
- Like the person with first aid experience, you could get someone with a lot of green know-how to put a flag on their cube indicating that they can help out with green questions.
