3 Places To Find A Job You Love In 2015
1. GameChangers 500
Founded by Andrew Hewitt, the GameChangers 500 features the world’s top “For-Benefit” companies. That means they exist not purely to make a profit, but also to make a difference.
Each organization is carefully analyzed and given up to nine badges based on the criteria of a “For-Benefit” (also known as “Purpose-Driven”) company.
- Having an exceptional work environment
- Empowered employees
- An earth friendly office, and
- Meeting their mission
And companies range from giants like Google and Whole Foods, to smaller ones like Guayaki, Kiva, and Etsy.
Laser tag fights, paid time off to volunteer with your favorite non-profit, and flexible hours are not uncommon perks you’ll find in this new sector of business…
And the GameChangers 500 is an excellent place to start your search for an inspiring company that empowers and engages you.
2. B Corps
Here’s a great description of what it means to be a “B Corp” from their website:
B Corps are certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
Today, there is a growing community of more than 1,000 Certified B Corps from 33 countries and over 60 industries working together toward 1 unifying goal: to redefine success in business.
As you can see, B Corps is a rapidly growing movement of businesses solving social and environmental problems, and they’re a great place to find a fulfilling job this year.
