AV1 honoured as Best for Workers
15 September 2017 | News
AV1 has been recognised for creating the most positive impact for our workers, scoring in the top 10 percent of all Certified B Corporations globally.
AV1 is honoured in the Workers category of the 2017 Best for the World list which is based on an independent, comprehensive assessment run by B Lab – the nonprofit organisation behind the B Corp movement.
The Workers section of the assessment looks at AV1’s relationship with its workforce. It measures how AV1 treats its workers through compensation, benefits and training.
It also focuses on the overall work environment within the business by assessing communication, job flexibility, corporate culture, and worker health and safety practices.
Jay Coen Gilbert, co-founder of B Lab said;
“Companies like AV1 are setting a new standard for creating positive impact for employees through their business,”
“We’re proud to shine a light on their achievement. Best for the World is the only list of businesses making the greatest positive impact that uses comprehensive, comparable, third-party-validated data about a company’s social and environmental performance.”
Commenting on the recognition, Managing Director Keith Wootton said;
“We’ve spent a lot of time building on and maintaining our culture, but there’s never been a way to independently measure it. It’s great to know we’re on the right track.”
Today there are more than 2,100 Certified B Corporations across more than 130 industries and 50 countries, unified by one common goal: to redefine success in business.
