Seattle, WA (PRWEB) September 08, 2016
Milepost Consulting, a Seattle-based management consulting firm with additional offices in California and Tennessee, was recognized for creating the most positive overall community impact by B the Change Media. “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.” said Bryan Welch, CEO of B the Change Media.
Milepost Consulting is honored in the Best for Workers category, which includes businesses that earned a Workers score in the top 10 percent of more than 1,800 Certified B Corporations on the B Impact Assessment. The full assessment, given by the independent nonprofit B Lab, 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.
The Best for Workers category of the B Impact Assessment assesses the company’s relationship with its workforce. It measures how the company treats its workers through compensation, benefits, training and ownership opportunities provided to workers. The category focuses on the overall work environment within the company through management/worker communication, job flexibility, corporate culture and worker health and safety practices. Honorees scoring in the top 10 percent set a gold standard for the high impact that business as a force for good can make on employees around the world.
“I could use a host of words to describe the Milepost workforce – leverage, assets, capital, family, team," said Milepost Consulting President Erik Froyd. "But what really matters is the way employees describe the company, their co-workers and their jobs. It is the employee orientation toward the company that ultimately defines the experience our customers have when doing business with Milepost.”
Working across multiple industries, including utilities, agriculture, corporate, government, and non-profit, Milepost Consulting offers experience and insight to help organizations adapt and thrive in a world challenged by environmental and social change.
Honorees are featured in the upcoming fall issue of B Magazine and on B the Change’s digital platform, bthechange.com. Milepost Consulting was also honored at the first-annual Best for the World Celebration & Awards Ceremony at the University of California, Berkeley’s Haas Business School.
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. Any company can measure and manage social and environmental performance at http://bimpactassessment.net.
