When I started Inventium nine years ago, I wanted to achieve two things.
The first thing I wanted to achieve was stamping out the mountains of fluff within the field of innovation consulting and only contribute top notch scientifically backed methods, tools and frameworks to the world, to give companies the best chance possible at making impact through innovation.
The second thing I wanted to achieve was build a workplace that employees would describe as being the best place they have every worked in their life. To do this, we obsess over recruitment, we challenge the status quo when it comes to HR policies, and celebrations are in abundance, especially those involving the best food Melbourne has to offer.
To take things up a notch this year, one of our goals for this year was to become a Certified B Corporation®. And I am very, very proud to announce, we have achieved this. B Corporations are leaders of the global movement of people using business as a force for good. It’s like Fair Trade certificated but for the whole business, not just a bag of coffee.
Inventium joins a group of over 1600 Certified B Corps in the world, including companies such as Etsy, Method, and Ben & Jerry’s (yum!) to openly hold ourselves to the highest of standards when it comes to social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.
If you also believe that businesses exist for more than just profit, and want to ensure the business you are in upholds only the highest standards in how it choses to lead in this world, then I’d strongly recommend checking out B Corporation®.
