In 2009, FMYI conducted a survey examining corporate social responsibility and sustainability employee engagement in Europe. We’re finally releasing the results to the public.
The idea first came about for this survey because of my experiences at Nike. I was both a member of Nike’s “Shambhala“ sustainability employee engagement initiative from 1999 to 2001, and also managed business integration and sustainability engagement from 2001 to 2004 at Nike. One of the original reasons I started FMYI in 2004 was to create a social collaboration tool for employee engagement in the areas of CSR and sustainability initiatives. Of course, many of our 10,000+ clients are now using FMYI sites for other purposes, but I was curious to learn more about the trends with CSR engagement since there haven’t been many major studies done on this topic except for the National Environmental Education Foundation’s “The Engaged Organization.“ Also, since we serve clients around the globe including corporations such as Hyatt with significant operations in Europe, it made sense to examine engagement trends there as we have expanded our reach in Europe.
The high level results of our survey are below. If you’d like more details, please let me know. We’ll be releasing a closer analysis of our findings soon, so stay tuned!
This survey was completed with help from Diana Ursachi, a Fulbright Scholar formerly with the European Commission.
