MEDIA ADVISORY: For Immediate Release
Enrollment Resources Honored as Best for Workers,
Creating Most Overall Positive Employee Impact
Evaluated by Comprehensive B Impact Assessment
September 8, 2016: Victoria, BC
Today, ENROLLMENT RESOURCES is recognized for creating the most positive overall community impact by B the Change Media, based on an independent, comprehensive assessment administered by the independent nonprofit B Lab. Enrollment Resources will be featured in the upcoming fall issue of B Magazine and on B the Change’s digital platform, bthechange.com. They are being honored at the first-annual Best for the World Celebration & Awards Ceremony at the University of California, Berkeley’s Haas Business School tonight, September 8th, 2016.
ENROLLMENT RESOURCES scored in the top 10 percent in the Best for Workers list, which includes more than 1,800 Certified B Corporations on the B Impact Assessment. The full assessment measures a company’s impact on its workers, community, customers and the environment. The 124 winning companies in the Workers category come from 14 industries and 15 countries.
Gregg Meiklejohn is proud of what ENROLLMENT RESOURCES has built for its workers: “It is common sense in today’s working world to create an excellent working environment for your team. A supportive environment gives space for employees to reach their potential and give nothing short of world-class offerings to both clients and their community.”
Benefits include paid community volunteer days and a focus on flexibility to allow for family care. “Family first,” says Meiklejohn, “no one should feel that they need to choose between supporting unseen family health urgencies and putting in time at work. As well, urging employees to participate in causes close to their hearts increases overall well-being, and brings a wealth of experiences which can then be applied to their work. It really is a win-win all around.”
Additional 2016 Best for Workers honorees include King Arthur Flour; Namaste Solar; and Dansko.
“The companies we are honoring as the best for the world represent the cutting edge of a global movement using business as a force for good. We are inspired by them, and feel deeply honored to join them in this historic and ground-breaking celebration,” said Bryan Welch, CEO of B the Change Media, the multiplatform media company that publishes the quarterly B Magazine and host of the Best for the World event at the University of California, Berkeley on September 8, 2016.
The 2016 Best for the World Honorees represent nearly one-third of all B Corps, displaying a wide range of excellence throughout the community. Today there are over 1,800 Certified B Corporations across over 120 industries and 42 countries, unified by one common goal: to redefine success in business.
