More and more technology firms are looking for ways to go green in their offices. Fact is, cutting down on paper usage and putting recycling bins around the office has become a rather primitive method of going green in 2015. Environmentalism isnt a new concept of course, but with advances in technology across multiple platforms and functions, viable green options for companies are becoming more accessible, cost-effective, and convenient.


One company embracing new age green policies is Momentum Ventures. Momentum Ventures is going a step beyond cutting paper usage and recycling, completely removing paperwork from its human resources department by adopting a web-based system called BambooHR. What this has done has eliminated the need for insurance forms, resume referral gathering, and vacation requests by putting all these forms online for employees to access independently. Momentum Ventures CEO Matthew Keezer believes this policy is greatly appreciated by employees saying besides the obvious paper cost savings and conservation, our sophisticated team really picked up the new system quickly and now our human resources department has more time to conduct more interviews and manage the office,adding it is truly making the office more efficient and making employees accountable for their individual human resources needs.

In addition to having a paperless human resources department, Momentum Ventures has added some perks for employees that are working to help the environment on a more practical, real-world level. While many companies offer transit subsidies to their employees, Momentum Ventures is going a step further. In addition to helping cover the cost of buses and bike rentals, Momentum Ventures offers a 50{71b550cbed0aca3fea2335d26076176dc834a5ad6e765af844b2cea64fe7483b} subsidy on the lease payments of hybrid and electric cars. This program is very forward thinking and really incentivizes employees to consider more fuel efficient or electric cars when shopping for a vehicle. Keezer says interest in the program is very high saying we have definitely made our workers think twice about their vehicle purchases since the launch of this program.
