The vision of B Work is to make it easy (and eventually automatic) for purpose-driven jobseekers and employers to find each other.
This will make the attraction of great talent into such a competitive advantage for social enterprises that it becomes a magnet for more companies to measure their impact, and join our movement.
B Work’s meaningful work movement is growing through the community building efforts of our TEAM, our EMPLOYERS, our JOBSEEKERS, and our PARTNERS.
B Work is a deep partnership between two organizations
B Lab, the non-profit organization that serves a global movement of people using business as a force for good
Fitzii, a B Corp through the Ian Martin Group – the most progressive recruitment firm in the world.
As the working world continues to climb up Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs towards self-actualization, the purpose, meaning and impact of your job is becoming increasingly important. Until now, looking for positions within social enterprises and companies that care about more than the bottom line was a manual, time-consuming, and frustrating task. Now with B Work, jobseekers have one place to find all the jobs from the most purpose driven companies in the world – and you don’t even have to look very hard. By creating a Job Alert you can have your dream job come to you as soon as it’s posted.
With all the “corporate social responsibility” initiatives out there it’s hard to separate the truly good companies, from those who are just promoting their limited positive impact. That’s why B Lab created the B Impact Assessment. This tool provides a judgment (via an objective, comprehensive rating) on how significant a company’s current impact is. The only employers that can post on B Work are those who have verified or certified their B Impact Assessment, or have legal status as a Benefit Corporation. If you’re an employer who is interested in measuring your social and environmental impact and using B Work to attract like-minded jobseekers, you can learn more about the process here.
B Work aims to connect the world’s purpose-driven employers and jobseekers. There’s a lot to do, and a lot of room for people to help. We’re currently looking for three types of partners: Groups of social enterprises or purpose jobseekers who would like a special connection with B Work; Certified B Corps who operate in the recruitment space; and ‘Measure What Matters’ partners of B Lab who want to integrate B Work into their offerings. If that’s you, please contact us to discuss partnering.
You’re Helping the Cause
Every time you apply to or post a job through B Work you’re helping to build a community of purpose-driven jobseekers and employers. The bigger this gets, the more powerful an incentive companies will have to improve their impact.
