The role of talent development in environmentally sustainable hospitality: A case study of a Scottish National Health Service conference centre. Worldwide Hospitality and Tourism Themes

In recent times, the need has been discovered to examine the role of strategic talent development in supporting environmental management in the hospitality industry, as well as exploring its practical implications and human impact on the natural environment. At the organizational level, it refers to “performance in managing natural resources and the natural environment in the process of conducting business.” Labor organizations are often cited as major contributors to climate collapse. The creation of “green” organizations, especially event organizers, involve pro-environmental workplace behaviors that encourage energy efficiency, waste reduction, recycling and water conservation, and incentivize front-line workers to use alternative low-carbon forms of transportation. The findings emphasize the key role of leaders as change agents and in promoting sustainability and encouraging low-carbon behaviors in the workplace, with the involvement of employees. It shows that a talent development approach can play a key role in creating a pro-environmental culture and can contribute significantly to the long-term environmental sustainability of organizations.
