Application Experts (http://www.app-x.com), a provider of cloud-based fund management software solutions, today announced its recognition for creating the highest quality jobs by the nonprofit B Lab with the release of the third annual ‘B Corp Best for Workers’ list. This analysis includes metrics regarding compensation and benefits, health and wellness programs, parent-friendly flex time and leave policies, professional development and internal promotion, corporate culture, profit sharing and ownership opportunities.
“With Millennials’ increasing demand for work-life integration, B Corps are winning the talent war,” said Jay Coen Gilbert, co-founder B Lab. “The Best for Workers Honorees are leading the way with their commitment to creating high quality jobs that serve a higher purpose.”
The ‘B Corp Best for Workers’ list honors businesses that earned an worker impact score in the top 10% of all Certified B Corporations on the B Impact Assessment, a rigorous and comprehensive assessment of a company's impact on its workers, community, and the environment. Honorees were recognized among micro, small, and mid-sized businesses.
Fellow honorees include Dansko, the 100% employee-owned, footwear brand, Ecotrust Forest Management, an investment and advisory firm helping investors and landowners enhance forest health and productivity, Rally Software, a leading global provider of cloud-based solutions for managing Agile software development (and the first successful B Corp IPO) and Charter School Business Management, a NY-based provider of financial training to the charter sector.
“The team at App-X is proud to be a part of the B Corp ‘Best for Workers’,” said App-X CEO Kevin Kelly. He continues, “We work hard to provide not only the best software and service for our clients but the best work environment for our employees as well. We believe that creating a great workplace is one where employees trust the people they work for, have pride in the work they do, and enjoy the people they work with.”
The ‘Best for Workers’ companies come from over 25 different industries such as consulting and financial services, renewable energy installation and technical services. One third of honorees are based outside North America, including countries such as Brazil, New Zealand, Italy Argentina and the United Kingdom.
