We believe business can make a difference in world. That’s why we’re proud to be part of a community of organisations that are committed to social and environmental benefit. Read more below about what B Corporations are and why we became one.
Why we became a B Corporation
We started Careershifters with a social purpose.
Through our own experiences of shifting careers, we were moved by the huge number of people around us who were unhappy in their work – and, in turn, the profound negative impacts this was having on their health and well-being, and on their wider contribution to the world.
We wanted to change that.
So, that’s why we set up Careershifters – and why we’re a .org (not a .com).
The B Corporation Certification didn’t exist when we started, but that now it does, it was a no-brainer for us to apply: not only does it tangibly demonstrate and embed our social and environmental objectives, but it also allows us to support a movement we deeply believe in.
