Innpact Honored as Best for Customers and Best for Workers, Creating Most Overall Positive Customer and Employee Impact14.09.2016

Innpact is honored in the Best for Customers list and the Best for Workers list, which include businesses that earned a score in each of these categories in the top 10% of more than 1,800 Certified B Corporations on the B Impact Assessment. The full assessment measures a company's impact on its workers, community, customers and environment. The 134 winning companies in the Customer category and the 124 winning companies in the Workers category come from 14 industries and 22 countries.

The Customer portion of the B Impact Assessment measures the impact a company has on its customers by focusing on whether a company sells products or services that promote public benefit and if those products/services are targeted toward serving underserved populations. It measures whether a company’s product or service is designed to solve a social or environmental issue. The Workers portion of the B Impact Assessment assesses the company’s relationship with its workforce, measuring how the company treats its workers through compensation, benefits, training and ownership opportunities provided to workers. The category focuses on the overall work environment within the company through management/worker communication, job flexibility, corporate culture and worker health and safety practices.

Honorees like Innpact set a gold standard for the high impact that business as a force for good can make around the world.

B the Change Media simultaneously released separate lists recognizing B Corporations as Best for the World (overall impact), Best for the Environment, Best for Workers and Best for Community, which can be found at http://bftw.bthechange.com.
