B the Change You Seek
It is not often that a single decision impacts our business as profoundly as this one. Mark Twain once said, “Two most important days of your life are the day you were born and the day you found out why.” Our B Corp journey has helped us understand our Why.
What is a Certified B Corporation?
Administered by the nonprofit B Lab, they are businesses that meet the highest standards
of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. With more than 3,500 companies in 74 countries, the B Corp community is a global movement of people using business as a force for good. B Corps use profits and growth to benefit their employees, communities, and the environment.
We started this journey long before we knew about this certification. Twenty five years ago, we set out to build a business founded on the conviction that our work as architectural, interior, and experience designers must serve the greater purpose of building a welcoming community and preserving our planet.
As a newly Certified B Corporation, we’ve discovered a growing community of organizations that mean what they say and say what they mean.
We affirm our commitment and accountability to our values, to the Workshop family, to the many partner firms with whom we have the pleasure of working, and most especially, to our clients for whom we have had the honor of serving.
If you’re interested in learning more and curious about the B Corp Certification process, we would be happy to share our journey.
