March is B Corp month! We are taking you “behind the B” and sharing why being a certified B Corporation is important to us. We’ve invited team members from the North America office to reflect on how their work at Reos Partners propels the change they want to see in this world.
Why Being a B Corp Matters
B Corps are businesses that commit themselves to embrace environmental sustainability and social change, thereby benefiting their communities. Our status as a B Corp validates our long-held mission to catalyze change through inclusion, sustainability, and collaboration.
To obtain B Corp certification, a company must complete a rigorous evaluation that analyzes its performance across five key areas: governance, workers, community, environment, and customers. Our Americas offices qualified for certification in 2020. Last year, Reos Partners was recognized as a 2021 Best for the World™ B Corporation. We were among the top 5% in the impact area of Governance. Our continuous commitment towards peace and democracy around the world paved the way for this achievement.
Our Business as a Force for Good
We design and evolve our business practices to make a positive impact on people, society, and the planet. We are proud to be a team that is committed to and engaged in making positive contributions to our global community.
Here, our North America team members reflect on how our work contributes to positive social change.
How does Reos Partners make a positive social impact?
We focus not only on the “what” of transformation, but equally important – but often neglected – the “how” of transformation. Our work contributes to the creation of system leaders who have the skills required to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
