Today, CSBM and 79 other companies from around the world were recognized for creating the highest quality jobs by the nonprofit B Lab with the release of the 3rd Annual “B Corp Best for the Workers” list. This analysis includes metrics regarding compensation and benefits, health and wellness programs, parent-friendly flex-time and leave policies, professional development and internal promotion, corporate culture, profit sharing and ownership opportunities.
“With Millennials’ increasing demand for work-life integration, B Corps are winning the talent war,” said Jay Coen Gilbert, co-founder B Lab. “The Best for Workers Honorees are leading the way with their commitment to creating high quality jobs that serve a higher purpose.” The ‘B Corp Best for the World: Worker Impact’ list honors businesses that earned an worker impact score in the top 10% of all Certified B Corporations on the B Impact Assessment, a rigorous and comprehensive assessment of a company’s impact on its workers, community, and the environment. Honorees were recognized among micro, small, and mid-sized businesses.
“The belief—that how we treat our people matters just as much as our profits—is one of the reasons we became a B Corp in the first place. Obtaining recognition from among the more than 1,100 other B Corps for the work that we are doing and the culture that we are creating together feels absolutely amazing. We are leading a global movement to redefine success in business so one day all companies compete to be not just the best in the world but the best for the world. We are incredibly proud to have performed so well in this community of businesses, particularly in an area that’s so important to us.”
– Raj Thakkar, Founder & CEO
