Business as a Force for Good: Our B Corp Credentials

Our mission is to operate as a force for good in Search, Leadership Development and People Consulting

B Corp Logo + Description

Proud to be a certified member of the worldwide B Corp movement and a 'Best For The World' honouree

B-People completed the B Corp accreditation process in January 2022, ranked as Outstanding with a B Impact score of 129.1 and building further on our vision to operate as a force for good in Search, Leadership Development and People Consulting. We are striving to make a valuable social contribution to business and the wider community whilst minimising our environmental impact, alongside an expanding range of commercial but highly client-centric services.

Within six months of joining the B Corp community, we were recognised as a Best For The World™ business in not one but two key areas of the assessment process: specifically relating to the Workers and Governance categories, where B-People's scores ranked in the top 5% of global B Corps. From the 165 outstanding B Corps that feature in this global 'Best For The World' list for 2022, only fourteen companies achieved a place in more than one category - so we are deeply honoured!

In addition to our founding principle of increasing diversity and equality in the workplace, we donate a minimum of 1% of our revenues and 5% of our time to three initiatives that play a key role within our ESG strategy:

Social Mobility & Integration

Partnership, financial assistance and direct pro-bono support to The Launchpad Collective

Sustainability & Business

Partnership, advocacy and direct support to the Environmental Business Network

Focused Impact

Ad-hoc donations to support wider social issues such Gender Equality and Homelessness

Social Mobility & Integration

The Launchpad Collective (TLC) is a Brighton-based non-profit organisation dedicated to supporting refugees into employment: a critical assimilation goal of this community. In addition to ongoing financial assistance, several members of the B-People team were instrumental in developing TLC’s offering and are now acting as employer-side advocates and advisors as the initiative expands access to its services across the whole of the UK.

We see huge Diversity & Inclusion benefits for employers that draw on the many talents of people with a refugee background and we are very excited about the potential to shift both perceptions and reality around the global issue of forced migration. B-People's strategic advice and direct operational support is provided to TLC on a fully pro-bono basis.

B-People recently became a TLC Scholarship Partner and is actively advocating for other companies to support TLC's work in a similar way, with the aim of building a sustainable funding model that helps to fill the significant skills and staff shortages being experienced by organisations in almost every sector.

Sustainability & Business

We are pleased to have formed a partnership with the Environmental Business Network, the leading network for Environmental and Sustainability professionals in the UK.

We provide direct pro-bono support to the network in the form of career planning advice and training, which flows through to accelerating UK Plc’s environmental and sustainability ambitions.

Focused Impact

In 2022, B-People was also pleased to make donations to several organisations that are working to overcome wider social issues.

These included a direct donation to the brilliant FGS Football Academy in Liverpool, where B-People are now proud sponsors of the FGS Seville Girls U11 team. We see grassroots sport as a key facilitator in the journey towards global gender equality - so check out our B-People branding on the team's match kit if you ever see them in action!

We also supported award-winning charity The Big Issue and their important work helping people who are experiencing homelessness or who are vulnerably housed: providing a hand-up that enables them to rebuild their lives and determine their own pathways to a better future.

The Big Issue

Business for Good

B Corp accreditation is quickly gaining recognition at the gold standard for responsible business and high Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) standards. Every year, B-People aims to provide at least 5% of its services to dynamic Social Enterprises and other Non-Profit Organisations on a pro-bono basis. We do this in the belief that if we can help these companies to grow, then everyone benefits.

Within its day-to-day operations, B-People provides the highest level of employee support, with an enlightened approach to flexible working and numerous benefits designed to maximise wellbeing and a healthy work-life balance. Whenever possible, we also strive to provide opportunities to young people from ethnically diverse or socially disadvantaged backgrounds via work experience and internships.
