Our B Corp Journey
Over the last few years Modular Digital has naturally gravitated toward helping organisations who put people, community and the planet, at the heart of what they do. We have grown a portfolio of clients and suppliers we are proud of. Teams who make a big impact. Clients whose Human values match ours.
Working with teams who do Good things is super important to us. In return we are continually striving to be better at what we do and constantly seek ways to improve our offering and how we operate not just in our human interactions but operationally as well.
We feel working towards being a B Corp certified organisation will do just that.
Day One: Getting my head around it all
I feel like I am back at school and I have just been given my first comprehension paper to complete. Excited, keen to get started. A bit worried we might not be right. The website is super comprehensive and easy to follow. This is going to take time, but that is ok. It will be worth it.
B Impact Assessment
Understanding the process and completing the B Impact Assessment is daunting. We are so busy in the day to day, it is not often you have to hold a mirror up against your business and really look it in this way.
As a small digital team, can we even do this? Is this goal just too large for us to achieve. As I start to put some initial answers in, we are not scoring, but some of the items would never be within our remit so that is ok. As the points start to count and add up. I feel reassured that this path is right for us.
Already my head is fizzing with ideas around making Modular a better business.
Even if we fall short of the requirements now, we will have a framework for improvement and every small step towards accreditation means we’ll still be better than where we started out.
