Companies that have integrated a contribution to society into their business models are more likely than others to succeed for the long term. This book provides you with information, tips and tools to assess and strengthen your company for ongoing success.
Through the use of case studies, the book describes the leaders’ journeys – the mistakes they made, the successes they achieved and the lessons they learned. Some are certified as Benefits Corporations (B Corps) because they have incorporated a clear societal purpose into their missions and they are able to demonstrate positive social impact. Others, while not certified B Corps, are at various stages in their commitments to society.
The book is for leaders at many levels, including CEOs, senior leaders and managers, as well as those without formal positions of authority but who can influence others and contribute to a sustainable culture.
