The Challenge: As Davey Tree advances, how do their employees and employee owners fully embody a commitment to provide innovative, interdisciplinary, long-term sustainability solutions? Developing a sense of purpose around sustainability with high employee engagement does not happen overnight. It’s a multi-year process that begins with deep listening, which is what our work with Davey set out to accomplish.
The Solution: Warm Springs Consulting supports the Davey Tree Expert Company in advancing sustainability by developing a strategy that engages employees. We started by listening deeply to what’s important to employees and other key stakeholders, reflecting on what’s important in new sustainability initiatives, clarifying and providing frameworks on how priorities and initiatives are communicated, and ultimately helping employees develop a deep commitment to the company’s mission and values, driven by a sense of purpose. WSC also developed a high-level fleet electrification analysis to help decision-making around decarbonization.
