SyncD & Futureheads: B Corp Certified
London, UK, Feb 8, 2023 – Futureheads, the leading Design, Digital and Tech recruitment solutions business has announced that it has been officially named a B Corporation; furthering the Company’s commitment toward running its business as a force for good while delivering people before profits service. As part of the Futureheads Recruitment Group, SyncD is pleased to share this exciting news with its network.
Futureheads and SyncD CEO, Nathan Callaghan comments:
“We’ve always believed that working at Futureheads is about building something bigger than ourselves, we continuously strive to meet higher standards. Through addressing positive change for our communities, the environment and our employees, we affirm to create a better place to work and live and we are so proud to join this global movement. With only 50 recruitment businesses in the UK certified B Corp, it’s a great achievement and one we hold dearly as we aspire to do more.”
The B Corp verification process administered by the nonprofit, B Lab, measures a company’s social and environmental performance. To become a Certified B Corporation, companies undergo a rigorous review of the impact of their operations and business model on their workers, customers, communities and environment, and must meet a minimum verified score of 80 on the B Impact Assessment tool.
Certified B Corporations believe it’s time to expand how success is measured in the business world. For-profit businesses should be a force for good and collectively strive for “shared and durable prosperity.” B Corps voluntarily meets high standards for social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. As a B Corp, Futureheads will measure and manage the impact of its business on its workers, community and the environment with as much rigour as it manages and monitors its profits.
Futureheads and SyncD Founder, Gill Arnold says:
“We became aware of the B Corp movement a few years ago and it immediately resonated with the vision and values that we’ve been passionate about since launching our business in 2009. B Corp felt like such a meaningful endorsement of how we’ve always tried to balance purpose and profit, but also a great way to challenge ourselves to do more – the rigorous certification process has helped us learn and grow and nudged us to look at aspects of our business that we could improve on to ensure a positive impact to our broadest stakeholders.
B Corp believes that the median score for ordinary businesses who complete the B Impact Assessment tool is currently 50.9 – we’re proud to have achieved an overall score of 88.7 at our first certification. However, the work doesn’t stop there – our whole team is committed to an ongoing program of improvement to ensure Futureheads is an even bigger force for good in the months and years to come.”
