COSTA MESA, CA, March 14, 2012 — In their new book, “Sustainable Staffing: How ‘Thinking Green’ is Changing the Way the World’s Leading Organizations Attract (and Keep) Top Talent,” brothers Theo and Greg Rokos and a team of thought leaders deliver a primer on smart tools and best practices to re-engineer Human Resources for sustainability—paving the way for widespread organizational change. The Rokos, founders of GreenJobInterview and pioneers in teleconferencing for talent acquisition, highlight how one small but revolutionary idea—live virtual interviewing—helps save time, money and the planet.
Ready or not, say the book’s authors, green is the new black—and companies that intend to compete in the 21st century can and must find ways to create and develop more sustainable workplaces.
Readers of “Sustainable Staffing” will discover:
• How profitability and sustainability can co-exist.
• What defines the business case for sustainable HR solutions and how to get the C-suite involved.
• How Walmart saved $2 million in one year by moving to live virtual interviewing.
• How to leverage sustainability to attract, retain and develop employees.
• What the green movement means to Gen Y talent.
• Success stories from companies like Walmart, PepsiCo and University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) which have implemented live virtual interviewing.
“Fixing corporations is the fastest and most efficient way to implement more-sustainable models of living and working,” says Theo Rokos. “And HR is the best way to change or implement policies across a company. If we can make hiring and HR processes more sustainable, we then have the model and the environment to change the whole organization.”
