It’s funny sometimes how a single event can be transformative. At Clarity Recruitment we have always believed in doing business in a different way.
From its inception, the team came together as collaborative innovators determined to hold ourselves accountable to a higher standard. We have core values forged in the spirit of social responsibility. We connect to and invest in our community. We believe in careers, not just jobs.
And then we saw the founder of Myplanet Digital speak.
Jason Cottrel, founder of Myplanet Digital, spoke about B Corp, a community of like-minded businesses who “competed to not only be the best in the world, but the best for the world.”
B Corp businesses meet higher standards of social and environmental transparency and performance.
The more Jason spoke, the more inspired we became. Everything he said resonated with us. We decided right then and there that we would become a certified B Corporation.
Eight months later, after a lot of hard work and B Corp scrutiny, we signed The Declaration of Interdependence, B Corp’s contract committing us to being better.
As the founder of Clarity Recruitment, this was one of my proudest moments. Becoming a certified B Corp means that we define success differently and that we’re willing to be held accountable by a worldwide community of over 900 like-minded businesses. We’re the first accounting and finance recruiting company in Canada to receive this designation and we’re excited to share it with you.
