WattzOn is an energy management platform for consumers to get a handle on their energy consumption and make easy changes to reduce it. The product works according to the old MBA adage – what gets measured gets managed. According to Dan Sheehy, WattzOn’s Executive VP, the results can be hundreds of dollars in savings and very significant reductions in energy waste.
What’s even more interesting are the results of a survey the company just completed which shows a strong desire by workers in the United States to see their employers take more steps to embrace sustainability. Additionally, the survey suggests that employers can benefit from implementing environmental programs in the workplace and by providing programs for employees to use for their households. The implications are obvious for WattzOn who makes it easy for companies to build WattzOn directly into their employee engagement strategy.
All of this is interestingly in tune with our recent coverage showing a strong correlation between CSR and both brand value and stock price. Learn more in my quick video interview with Dan Sheehy after the jump…
