RCI Achieves Official Designation as a Socially Responsible Company
Online PR News – 20-June-2012 – Raleigh, NC – Roving Coach International, Inc. (RCI) which has always focused on Creating World Peace in the Workplace™, proudly added “People, Planet and Purpose” to its mission by recently becoming a certified B Corporation. The “For Benefit” company is one of only 523 companies in North America that have achieved this coveted certification. Members include companies as large as Patagonia, Etsy and Seventh Generation.
Certified B Corporations (with “B” standing for “benefit”, as in, “for the benefit of people and the planet”) are a new kind of company which use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. Each must meet higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability. The performance standards are comprehensive and transparent, measuring a company’s impact on its employees, suppliers, community and the environment. As a result, individuals will have greater economic opportunity, society will move closer to achieving a positive environmental footprint, more people will be employed in great places to work, and we will have built stronger communities at home and across the world.
“From Day One, Roving Coach has operated from a strong foundation of core values that we strive to live by in every interaction with our clients, our employees and our coaches,” said CJ Scarlet, RCI’s Chief Rover.” Because we choose to be a socially responsible company, we did not seek to achieve this certification as a mere feather in our cap, but rather to set an example for other corporations to follow. We did it to say, ‘Corporate social responsibility is simple, it’s affordable and it’s just plain good business.’”
