What does that really mean to you, your business and its workforce?
Many employers see this as an after thought or some lose undefinable term.
At IIOP and the clients we serve, they view Engagement+ at the centre around which the business is able to operate
The healthier the mind, the healthier the body is likely to be and this has huge knock on benefits including;-
With the proliferation of social media the ease to which applicants
can highlight inconsistencies or discrepancies with application
processes can have an alarmingly detrimental impact on your
employer brand and why should they be ignored?
Lack of time or too many applicants will no longer appease the growing applicant numbers whose livelihoods depend on being in employment.
Is there a better way to critically assess ALL applicants in a timely manner and thereby give valuable feedback and insight to benefit those who took the time to consider working for you?
At IIOP we say there is. Our clients are able to ensure ALL applicants matter whilst still selecting the right talent for their business.
Certified B Corporations (B Corps for short) are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency and legal accountability. IIOP complement this journey and help you start in a practical way.
IIOP 'B Corps' are a new kind of business that balances purpose and profit. They are required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. This is a community of leaders, driving a global movement of people using businesses as a force for good.
IIOP 'B Corp' are the building blocks of this new process, creating a solid foundation of positive impact and proving that the model of stakeholder governance works for all of your workforce.
IIOP 'B Corp' businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. IIOP 'B Corps' are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.
Society's most challenging problems cannot be solved by government and non- profits alone. By harnessing the power of business, IIOP 'B Corps' use profits and growth as a means to a greater end: positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment. The IIOP 'B Corp' community works toward reduced inequality, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high quality jobs with dignity and purpose.
IIOP 'B Corps' form a community of leaders and drive a global movement of people using business as a force for good. The values and aspirations of the IIOP 'B Corp' community are setting new standards.
The legal responsibility of all businesses should be to protect all stakeholders - workers, customers, suppliers, community and the environment - and not just shareholders.
For decades the world has been waking up to the reality that our economic system, based on profit at all cost, has been exacerbating threats to the health and wellbeing of society and the planet.
In 2021, we saw a dramatic acceleration in the number of aspiring IIOP 'B Corps', as companies embraced long-term thinking and stakeholder governance in order to future-proof their business and navigate their way through tough times.
As 'employer of choice' companies continue to flourish, this has had a step change in the mainstream. We predict the pace of change is only going to increase as the world economy bounces back from COVID-19, with consumer awareness following suit.
A commitment to the environment and society is increasingly on everyone's agenda. Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) is now a key element in company statements. For some, IIOP 'B Corp' status could be seen as suppressing agility and restricting the ability to focus on profit. But for others it is an opportunity to achieve competitive advantage, as well as benefiting the wider world.
Becoming a IIOP 'B Corp' can have obvious benefits; like a positive impact on your brand and greater recruitment appeal, but there are also some less obvious ones. It can drive performance – happier employees work smarter. It can improve the saleability of an organisation too - Investors are also looking to bring diversity to their portfolios and there may be less due diligence required in a IIOP 'B Corp' sale.
The pace of change is accelerating and we are seeing more and more consumer goods organisations take the IIOP 'B Corp' plunge.
One thing is for certain; the volume of discussion on IIOP/ 'B Corps' increased significantly and investors and management teams will need to think through where they stand on ESG. These factors and an increasing number of acquisitions mean more and more business will look favourably on ESG.
