We’re thrilled to announce that Azavea has joined Etsy, Dansko and Change.org among other businesses across 39 industries and 6 countries on the ‘B Corp Best for the Workers List‘, the third installment of B Lab‘s 2013 ‘B Corp Best of the World’ Series.
The ‘B Corp Best for Workers List’ honors businesses that earned an overall score in the top 10% of all Certified B Corporations for their positive impact on their workforce, as measured by the B Impact Assessment, a comprehensive assessment used by more than 10,000 businesses to measure their impact on their workers, community, and the environment. This analysis includes metrics regarding worker ownership, compensation and benefits, management and worker communication, training and education, work environment, and occupational health and safety.
We are proud to be included in the Best for the World list. B Corporations are aimed at building companies that serve a broad definition of stakeholders, rather than just shareholders. Our employees are very important stakeholders in the success of the business, and they have been the key to the company’s growth over time.
