Digitaliseerumine on organisatsioonide praktikas justkui igapäevane ja teisalt üsna ühekülgne. Digiallkirjad, e-post jms on midagi, millele enam palju ei mõtle, kui kõne all on organisatsiooni efektiivsust puudutavad töövood. Kuidas aga kujundada töövood keskkonnasäästu arvestades, sellest on mitmel pool palju juttu ning mõned praktilised sammudki astutud, kuid need on minuni jõudvates praktikates siiski pigem formaalsed (mis on samuti oluline). Küll aga ei ole minuni ei ole jõudnud infot, kus organisatsiooni töövoogusid oleks analüüsitud näiteks keskkonnasäästu seisukohast – mis on kõige olulisemad mõjutajad nii praktilises kui tunnetusraamistike tähenduses? Sestap siinviidatud vabalevis olev tekst oma koha leidiski.

Kontekstist:

The accelerated digitalization of processes and working models did not happen for many organizations as a result of long-term planning but was rather imposed by lockdowns and external restrictions. In the authors’ opinion, this currently happening work r(e)volution could be either a major opportunity or a threat for the labor world.

Kestliku arengu tähendus siin tekstis:

The authors of the article defined sustainability as a balance between economic, environmental, and social factors.

Inimene ja kestlik areng:

According to the authors, the practical application of sustainable development within organizations is humanistic management. Humanistic management can be described as a trend that places people and their natural and social environment at the center. As underlined by Kostera, one of the most important Polish propagators of humanistic management, building a sustainable, humanistically managed organization, means putting emphasis on creating a positive impact on individuals, groups, and the environment [2]. Classical management does not stand, or at least should not, in contradiction with humanistic management.

Autorid püstitavad hüpoteesi:

The objective of the authors’ study was to verify the following hypothesis: The corona-caused digitalization of work and human resources processes helps organizations in achieving the ideal of sustainability.

A huge part of the world’s population commutes to work with a car. Driving a car has one of the highest impacts on polluting the air. A study run by Sun Microsystems revealed that a daily car commute to and from work is responsible for 98% of an employee’s work-produced carbon footprint. […] Moreover, transportation, in general, is the biggest source of carbon dioxide emissions in the US, and private vehicles constitute 60% of the emissions [31].

Another environmental aspect, deeply linked to the working from the office practices, are eating habits. Many companies offer food delivery options to their employees. This tendency is very strong in the big, often polluted cities. According to a study that was published in “Nature Human Behavior”, the more polluted the city, the more likely office workers will order lunch.

Tulemustest:

The company, which was the main object of the research, reduced its CO 2 emissions thanks to the introduction of:

  • remote recruitment process
  • remote and hybrid working models.
