During the interview process WEC is able to get a feel for if an employee shares their same views, and if they do then they are already ahead of most other companies because they have employee buy in. WEC has several sustainability practices put into place including “green building programs, waste audits, vendor and supplier code of conduct as well as initiatives to promote local development and partnerships with community organizations” (“Ecologically Sustainable Organization”, 2008). By having these practices, WEC is going above and beyond what is required from them, and they are helping their environment in their day in and day out operations. What they are doing is not hard, they just put into practice what they believed was right, sought out employees with similar beliefs, and abide by their guidelines daily to help improve the environment and their community at the same time. This week our presentation from Dr. Fischer (n.d.) discussed corporate responsibility and how “rules and regulations are not enough to solve problems” and how it is our biblical responsibility to go above and beyond those. We are called to enforce what Jesus came to Earth to show us, that rules are simply not enough. This is what our social responsibility and also our economic responsibility is as Christians, whether that be individually or as a business.
