What we have learned collectively as a company has amazed us:
- We started with over 50% participation in the first year and that has increased each year
- We have an active Slack channel where our people share ideas and encourage each other
- Our new hires mention the GHGR Fund as something that helped them choose CodeScience as an employer
- The GHGR Fund is called out as a positive in nearly every exit interview
Addressing Climate Anxiety
Knowledge economy companies like CodeScience invest heavily in the financial, medical, and mental health of our people. That overall health allows them to creatively solve the complex problems of our clients. As our employees, and our society at large, grow to understand the impacts of climate change and the sea changes required to achieve net zero emissions, they can develop climate anxiety or hopelessness. Our employee-first approach enables the sharing of ideas, direct personal action, and measurable progress. Just like our other employee benefits, the GHGR Fund helps our people address productivity-sapping anxiety.
The proprietary solutions we develop for our customers are used for their profit and competitive advantage in software markets. The culture we offer at CodeScience enables us to beat our competition in the talent market for the best and the brightest. The GHGR Fund we offer is an ingredient of the recipe that creates our unique culture. It’s not proprietary though, it is a solution we can offer publicly to companies looking for better ways to address climate change and employee health.
