How long have you been a B Corp™?

2009

What attracted you to B Corp™?

The Decisely mission and B Corp™ mission are aligned. It’s about doing what is right for people. Their families, their environment, and their futures.

Why does B Corp™ matter to you?

If I don’t care, who will? It’s up to all of us to make the world a little better place when we leave it behind. I have the opportunity to make a difference – and the B Corp™ community supports that. By doing so, I can also support the B Corp™ community.

What two or three activities do you do within your company to keep the B Corp™ mission a key part of your company culture?

We are a 100% paper-free environment; we are currently 100% remote and are likely to remain primarily remote post-pandemic; we are actively supporting all within our company and community by providing them with a safe space to speak out; we’ve joined Time to Vote and actively support all within our company who wish to make a difference.

If you were encouraging other companies to consider applying for B Corp™ certification, what would you say to them? Why should they become a B Corp™?

B Corp™ certification is a high standard - and even if we all can’t meet it all the time, it provides us with a noble goal and a reminder that it’s not all about us, all the time. Companies who aspire and work toward B Corp™ status are not only thinking of the shareholders, they are thinking of the world around them. This status will remind them to go beyond the profit, to think beyond the next quarter, to work towards a better future - for themselves, their employees and their community.
