THE INFLUENCE OF ENVIRONMENTAL TRAINING ON ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS OF HUMAN RESOURCES PROFESSIONALS
Keywords:Environmental Training, Environmental Awareness, Human Resources Professionals.
Currently, many organizations are working to minimize and contribute to solving environmental
problems. In this sense, the human resources area emerges as a facilitator of the implementation of
environmental policies and practices in companies, mainly by the use of training programs. This research
aims to analyze the influence of environmental training in environmental awareness of human resources
professionals. With a descriptive quantitative approach, we applied a validated questionnaire in 73 human
resources professionals from Londrina-PR. Data analysis involved descriptive statistics and non-parametric
Pearson χ 2 test. The results indicate the relationship between environmental training and environmental
awareness of human resources professionals surveyed: indeed, the human resources professionals who
received some type of environmental training showed a level of environmental consciousness longer than
those who received no training in this area.
