Energised Employee Program

Enhance your employees’ well-being and empower them to work productively, comfortably and affordably at home through personalised energy efficiency education.

Shifting energy impacts and emissions of a hybrid workforce

Working from home has become a permanent feature of the employment landscape for leading businesses in Australia. Three quarters of Australians now say their ideal work environment is a mix of remote and in-person working¹. As Australian businesses shift to a hybrid workforce model, they need to support their employees to ensure that their working from home experience is as comfortable, affordable and efficient as being in a centralised office.

Carbon Emissions

Seem to be shifted to employees working from home but employers still need to bear responsibility for work-related emissions
Sometimes I have to shower just to get warm. It’s much more noticeable now that I’m remote. I have to wear thermals, blast the heater, and keep a heat pack at my feet – and I can still feel the cold air seeping under the window frame.

I wrapped myself in a damp towel with ice cubes. This helped for a little bit, but I was melting and felt really uncomfortable. I can sit in my singlet and shorts working from home, but I have to be careful with Zoom meetings and not have my camera on.
