Becoming a B Corp is a big deal to us for several reasons. It was a goal right from the very beginning, when High Impact was an idea and not yet a company. We serve a mission-focused industry, and we want to reflect the values of that industry in everything we do. We want our clients and the whole world to know that we are committed to using the dollars we earn from them to treat our employees, community, and environment responsibly, and they can count on us to use what profit we make to reinvest in new services, donate to worthy causes, and spark other enterprises that reflect our shared values.
Our certification also gives us access to a B Corp community made up of leaders of a global movement of people using business as a force for good. We are excited to use that collective knowledge to find ways to improve our impact assessment score to become even stronger in our social impact mission (you can see how we did on the impact assessment here--check back in the future to see how much we improve!).
We deeply believe that if all companies were B Corps, the world would be far more compassionate, healthy, and full of opportunity. We may be small, but we must do our part to move in that direction. That’s why we’ve become a B.
High Impact is pleased to introduce our new blog, which we will use to share news about the company and our clients, discuss issues in underwriting and community development, and keep in touch with our clients and community. We will always alert you of updates through our social media accounts, so keep tabs on us by following us through the links to our Twitter and LinkedIn accounts in the footer of the page.
To kick off the blog, we have an exciting announcement coming up later this week. Be sure to check back to hear our (b)ig news!
