At Designated PA we care about a lot of things – we care about our employees, our clients and our families. We also care a great deal about the world around us and how we impact upon it, both positively and negatively.
Our world is a precious place and we need to help to preserve it and enrich it, and as such we have committed ourselves to engage in sustainable practices in a bid to be the best for the world and to join other B Corporation in their desire for business to be “a force for good”.
We are only just starting out on our journey to become a Certified B Corporation, and we hope that by doing so, we will demonstrate to individuals and communities how serious we are.
What does B Corporation mean?
“B Corporation is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk” – B Corporation website.
To become a B Corp company we need to voluntarily meet higher standards of transparency, accountability, and performance. We need to be offering 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. To do this I am sending out a survey to all our employees in the hope it will help us to establish how satisfied they are working within the Designated Group – our social performance – are we fair & transparent? I will keep you posted….
