O’Connells OBM awarded Best for Workers in the global B Lab honorees list third year running! #bestfortheworld17

We’re driven to create a workplace where our team members can thrive, so today we’re humbled and honoured to pause, and be recognised once again by the B Corporation community as being Best for Workers.

This award is a reminder that through our compensation, benefits, training, ownership opportunities, job flexibility, culture and health and safety practices, we’ve created a pretty special environment, a workplace recognised as being amongst the top 10% of all B Corporations – a growing group of businesses using business as a force for good.

To us, business is a vehicle that can create a positive impact on the lives of those connected it, and to us, that all starts with how the individuals inside a business are treated – so being named as “Best for Workers” is humbling recognition of our efforts to putting team members first and creating a positive work environment.

We attribute our high work environment score to our open-book management culture –  our approach being modelled on the Great Game of Business.  At its core The Game is about educating, empowering and engaging your team to think and act like business owners (if you haven’t heard Adam raving about the benefits of running a business in this way – check out his recent LinkedIn article here).

We hope more businesses follow suit and join the growing B Corp community. We are really proud to be a part of a community of like-minded businesses owners and we look forward to sharing our experience with others on how employees can not only contribute to building a better business, but bettering themselves and the communities they live in.
