BIMA has launched its first Bootcamp aimed at guiding our members through the process of becoming certified as “B-Corp” entities – certification which signifies socially responsible practices on behalf of all stakeholders involved (employees, investors and customers).
BIMA attracts a very specific type of company. So it’s no coincidence that we’ve seen a big increase in companies that are exploring B-corp status within the membership. B-corp status, while brilliant and worthwhile, is not always a simple journey.
With so many people exploring the idea and built around our ethos that everything is better with friends. We’ve pulled together some BIMA Members that have been through the journey and some that are about to embark on it. Feedback from the people that have just been through it was always that it would be better as a community rather than going it alone.
Join the BIMA B-corp boot camp for a 6 month programme that will take you through the different application steps from Governance to the Environment….all guided by our B-corp veterans.
This session will look at:
– Employee Benefits
– Employee development
– Worker Ownership
Who is it for?
Managing Directors, Founders, CEOs and anyone else who is going through the process.
Next in this series we will cover:
19 Jan – Community
15 Feb – Customers
15 March – Submission
This event is open to BIMA Members and Non- Members. For more information on becoming a BIMA Member visit the BIMA Site or email firstname.lastname@example.org
