Positive Environmental Impact of Virtual Hirings

Environmental degradation due to growing carbon emissions is one of humanity’s most challenging concerns of the 21st century.

In pursuit of high growth, businesses around the globe are setting aside devastating environmental degradation. Massive exploitation of natural resources and uncontrolled carbon emissions is leading to global warming.

Numerous studies on climate change reveal that nearly all greenhouse gas emissions increased over the last 150 years after the world’s economy’s tie-in with the idea that industrialization is the only way to achieve high growth and become powerful. Greenhouse gas emissions act like a blanket over the earth’s atmosphere and don’t allow heat and harmful radiation to escape into outer space. This gives a gradual rise to earth temperature and leads to global warming, disrupting the diversity of life and ecosystems that have lived and thrived in earth’s mild habitable climate for millions of years.

However, in recent years, the business world started taking global warming and environmental degradation seriously. An increasing number of organizations have become aware of how their conduct impacts the environment. It comes as no surprise that the digital transformation of the world economy, including HR industries, could be a reliable solution for environmental sustainability. This could be an innovative answer to the dual challenge of achieving higher growth in business and keeping ecological degradation low at a certain level.

Digitalization of the HR industry empowers recruiters with cloud-based storage space, automated screening, and unlimited interview recording. It eliminates the use of thick files for each candidate to store their details when talent acquisition practices—no need to explain that paper is made from wood, which leads to deforestation and contributes to environmental degradation. According to a report, an average US citizen uses the equivalent of seven trees worth of paper goods each year.  The use of a virtual recruitment platform by the companies and applicants could help reduce paper waste significantly and have a positive impact on the environment.

We at Jobma are committed to reducing the carbon footprint in the recruitment industry by integrating modern-day technology and innovative ideas into your hiring practices.
