It’s no secret that our energy bills are on the rise, and its turns out that it’s mostly the younger generation that’s responsible.
That’s according to a study that we carried out recently. We asked some questions about your workplace habits and the results indicated that only 34% of employees aged 18 to 24 regularly turn off their computers when they leave work for the night… It’s clear that computers are responsible for a huge percentage of unnecessary energy costs for businesses.
While the older generation have been brought up placing high importance on energy saving, our research demonstrates that their younger colleagues don’t act in the same way. Many younger people are simply unaware of the huge effect technology can have on energy bills.
How can we encourage young people to become more energy efficient in the workplace? Our study shows that almost a third of employees feel that their bosses should be taking more time to raise awareness of energy saving in the office by investing more time in training or visuals around the office and in the break out area.
A whopping 46% of British workers believe that saving energy isn’t too high on their priority list – but say that a cheeky little incentive might change that!
They’re thinking maybe a bonus at the end of the year, a weekly breakfast – or even an office party! It’s something that’s worth thinking about considering how much you could save on your energy bills.
It’s not just young people that are to blame though – over a third think that the best way to save money on energy bills would be for their employer to investigate whether they are getting the best deal from their energy supplier.
These guys feel that switching the office energy supplier would the biggest opportunity to save money, which is food for thought, considering that over a quarter of employers believe that their bosses would be too busy to switch!
