Certified B Corporations value more than the bottom line — including putting a priority on their workers. B Corps aim to provide workplaces where employees feel strongly connected to their company’s mission and where they see that their contributions make a difference to those varied stakeholders.

On B The Change this week, you’ll find articles that show how workers are driving their workplace mission — through ideas and engagement, empowering ownership, and action on worldwide sustainability goals — and acting collectively with the B Corp community to build a more inclusive and regenerative economy.
