what’s a B Corp?
B Corps use the power of business to drive social and environmental change. B Corp is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk. B Corps are forward-thinking companies committed to using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.
We all know that certifications are hard work. There is a lengthy and rigorous process of checks, balances, and audits to obtain and maintain them. We believe it’s worth it in order to give you the peace of mind you deserve when considering our services, and this is why our CARF accreditation is so important for our brain injury programs. But what about the harder-to-prove claims like “we are a great company”? How do you know for certain that Success treats its employees fairly, supports the local community, and is doing all the good we say we’re doing?
This is where the B Corporation certification comes in. The “B” in B Corporation stands for “Benefit.” It’s a standard that measures not just the fairness of our ingredients but also our business practices, assigning us a score based on how we treat the environment, our workers, customers, community and how the business itself is governed. In short, this little B Corporation logo tells you in an instant that we truly do all of the good stuff that we say we do.
B Corps are certified by the nonprofit B Lab to voluntarily meet rigorous standards around social change, environmental performance, transparency and accountability. We use B Lab’s B Impact Assessment as our blueprint for building a better business, measuring what matters, and benchmarking company performance.
Like any reputable certification, B Corporation also relies on auditing to make sure we are actually doing what we say we are. Our B Corp certification provides reassurance to our community that Success will continue to meet the highest standards of social responsibility.
We are committed to advocating on behalf of our clients and the broader brain injury community at the state and federal level through our membership in the Rehabilitation & Community Providers Association (RCPA) and participation in committees and events hosted by Brain Injury Association of Pennsylvania (BIAPA) and Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA). We continue to develop and strengthen our advocacy efforts, recently opening office in Washington, DC. In addition, our leadership team hold positions on the RCPA board of directors and BIAPA’s at-large committees and task forces.
