We’re Best For The World™ again!
It’s been a challenging 18 months for the world, navigating likely the most impactful global crisis in most of our lifetimes.
So many individuals and businesses have been upended by the COVID-19 pandemic, with not just the health implications of the virus itself, but financial and mental health devastation as well.
Although, as a business we have been impacted by the crisis we feel fortunate to still be able to work with clients who are doing amazing things to make the world a more equitable and sustainable place.
This time has allowed us to reflect and review what and how we deliver our services, with a shift in focus to primarily providing purpose-led organisations with project or company-wide stakeholder engagement strategies that can either be delivered with a do-it-yourself, do-it-with-you or do-it-for-you execution plan.
And, combined with the impact and B Corp consulting provided by our newly launched and rebranded sister agency, The Benefit Consultants, a period that has certainly been difficult has turned into a future of hope and greater positive impact than ever before.
Although we may have made some significant changes over this period, one thing that has never changed is our values, at the core of which is community.
Rather than shelve our standing commitments of donating 1% of revenue and 5% of billable hours to our charity partner, Whitelion or abandon our involvement in the B Local Sydney community, we have doubled down on our efforts to provide a meaningful contribution where our skills can make a difference.
The connection and support that is returned to us from these activities has helped to keep us focused on the future and committed to our cause.
So, to have been acknowledged once again as a Best For The World™ Community in 2021, with over 1000 more B Corps having certified since we were acknowledged in 2019, this is a tremendous honour and a great boost for us to keep doing what we’re doing.
As a Best For The World™ we score in the top 5% of B Corps globally in the Community impact area out of the 4000 certified B Corps across 77 countries, so you can see why we’re especially chuffed! Head here if you’d like to check out the full Best For The World™ list.
As we prepare for re certification as a much different business from the one that certified in 2018, we can guarantee that community will always be at our heart.
