To become a B Corp company, we need to voluntarily meet higher standards of transparency, accountability, and performance. We need to offer a positive vision of a better way to do business.
The first steps along this path require us to take a long hard look at whether we practice what we preach.
We started this process by sending out a survey to everyone in our internal team to help us establish how satisfied they are working within the Designated Group. It has been an enlightening and very positive activity.
The results are in and have given us a clear statement of where we are, what we do well and where we can improve.
The are many highlights for us to feel proud of. Our team feels highly motivated to see our company succeed, everyone agrees we offer flexible ways of working and everyone is happy working within our company.
There are of course areas we need to improve. Not all staff feel that they have opportunities for advancement and some team members would like additional training.
Our next step is an action plan to address these areas. And what is interesting is that the B Corp process is driving these activities.
So, at this stage I can wholeheartedly say that B Corp is a force for good for the internal operations of your company.
Next step is to find a business bank that supports our goals. Will keep you posted….
