CHICAGO, IL and PARIS--(Marketwire - Aug 17, 2011) - Enablon, the world's leading provider of sustainability management software, today announced that Centrica, the integrated energy company, will share its experience using Enablon software in an AltaTerra Research webinar on "New IT Solutions to Manage Employee Engagement for Sustainability," Aug. 18th, 2011 from 2 p.m. to 3.30 p.m. EDT. Experts from each organization will discuss corporate best practices for implementing IT technology for use in employee engagement in CSR/sustainability.

Corporations have begun to take a proactive approach to sustainability with corporate social responsibility programs for employees and the community, as well as external responsible supply chain initiatives. Through these programs, companies invest corporate assets -- which can be money, employee time or in-kind donations -- in global as well as local community initiatives. However, they often lack the global overview of their initiatives and their donations to the communities in which they operate and the information systems to manage the processes and overall operations.

To reap the benefits of their initiatives, pioneering companies such as Centrica make sure they have visibility into their community efforts and efficient control of how corporate assets are invested at both the local and global levels.

In the 90-minute interactive online briefing, AltaTerra Senior Analyst Jackie Pitera will share best practices for implementing IT technology for use in employee engagement in CSR/sustainability. Briana Whitlock, Corporate Responsibility Officer at Centrica, will discuss the challenges and lessons learned from their community investment program and the ways they manage their larger employee sustainability engagement initiatives on a day-to-day basis with tools like the Enablon IDM solution for operational program management.
