Have you heard the buzz? Over the last six months, Mondo Mediaworks has been flying towards the goal of becoming a Certified B Corporation. And guess what? We did it! Mondo Mediaworks is proud to announce that we’re officially a Certified B Corporation!
What is a B Corp, you ask? It’s neither a legion of buzzing insects nor a business filled with Bobs, Bills, and Bettys. Certified B Corporations are companies that meet higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability, and are leaders of the global movement of people using business as a force for good™. Mondo is thrilled to join over 2,000 B Corps world wide, including fellow Vermont companies like King Arthur Flour, Ben and Jerry’s, Cabot Creamery, Seventh Generation, and Green Mountain Power.
Since we formed in 2010, Mondo’s core mission has been to support long-term economic development in our Brattleboro community and the greater Vermont region. We do this by providing high-quality, livable wage jobs, by supporting our local business and nonprofit colleagues, and by volunteering in the community. Mondo aspires to be a force for good in our area, so joining the B Corp movement was a natural choice.
We’re particularly proud of our scores in the governance section, workers section, and community section where Mondo scored significantly above the median score for each category. Some of the programs that got Mondo our certification include our employee fitness program, our company-wide volunteer program, and our flex-time policy which is definitely a favorite among our millennial team. Plus, while completing the B Corp certification, we examined our client list and discovered that well over 50% of our clients are local businesses and nonprofits. What can we say? We love supporting the local economy and working with our fellow Brattleborians.
But wait! There’s more: in 2017 Mondo is excited to increase our employee volunteer hours, and we’re currently looking to partner with local nonprofits. We’re also eager to continue tracking our environmental impact, using the systems we put in place, including an electricity use monitor. Mondo is also looking forward to connecting with the wider B Corp community and we hope to bring on some fellow B Corps as clients in the coming years.
