At the 2014 B Corp Champions Retreat this week, Eric and 12 other B Corp leaders joined US Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez for a roundtable to discuss the relationship between being profitable and being a great employer.
They talked about how to create shared prosperity including living wages, paid leave, and creating the best companies for workers, shareholders and communities.
The Secretary praised B Corps for leading the way.
Other highlights from this year’s retreat:
Eric and MG were among those honored with a Collective Action award for our leadership in the B the Change Campaign.
Just announced: Portland, Oregon — our headquarters city — will host the 2015 B Corp Champions Retreat. Thrilled!
