Abstract or Summary

Global warming is a reality. Organisations realise their corporate responsibility to conduct their business with the 'future' in mind. Sustainability is having a green conscience and ensuring the steps you take today do not have a negative impact on the future. Green Human Resources Management is to promote the sustainable use of resources within business organisations. The aim of this research is to provide organisations with a Green Human Resource Management Strategy (GHRM). A qualitative approach was followed, and five participants interviewed. The researcher followed this approach to gain an in-depth understanding of business eco-friendly practices, to ascertain if they utilise HR to drive “green” in the organisation and engage employees. The study found that most organisations have implemented some eco-friendly practice and know the value of becoming a 'green' employer. However, the researcher identified a significant gap in that organisations are not aware of or lack the knowledge of how to utilise HR practices to get staff engaged in green policies and procedures. The researcher will strive to come up with various ideas and recommendation to the business on how they can utilise their HR practices to go green and engage their staff.
