WeGoBeyond: engaging your employees during B Corp month

This B Corp month Do Nation are inviting impactful businesses to come together to show the world how #WeGoBeyond expectations and make a mark on the world.

Do Nation have put together a bespoke, quick and easy-to-implement B Corp Month employee engagement package so our fellow B Corps can have maximum impact and engagement this B Corp month.

Sign up by 15th Feb to benefit from this, and join B Corps such as Vita Coco, Graze, X+Why, and DISRUPT Agency.

Bringing B Corps together for collective impact

B Corp month is the time to come together, have some fun, and create some serious impact!

Organisations invest a lot in certification and want to get the most from it. Bringing employees onboard – by helping them understand what it means to be a B Corp, showing them how to B the difference, and engaging them in sustainable behaviour change – is essential.

We all know climate change is scary, and here. But there is solace in our data; sustainable acts make people feel good and more connected (see our 2021 impact report).

Together we are mighty.

B Corp month and the bottom line

Whether your organisation is small, big, old or new, each employee is an ambassador. Employee engagement is not a nice to have, it’s vital for survival.

Do Nation is here to help you with that.

Guest post: Hope or determination?

Chris fist pumps the air

Chris Cayley asks, “Which is more important in the climate debate and why am I cycling again in the week before COP27?”

A few weeks ago Adam Woodhall, CEO of Lawyers for Net Zero, posted a poll on LinkedIn asking which we needed more, hope or determination. 

Around the time of the conservative leadership debates I watched Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss answer a question about climate action in ways that genuinely engendered feelings of anger and more like visceral despair. Thankfully, confirmation that Ride the Change ‘22 will go ahead has given me reasons to hope.
